"On my second pair of these and overall they are sweet. Fit is true to size for me and they are soft, flexible and perform well for most activities. I wear them for light running and other sports since they are flexible and provide good cushioning. Having been through a few pairs of the 09â€™ Air Maxâ€™s these perform similar. The mesh material is a bit different from the previous model and these have a plastic toe cap instead of the weak stitches that Iâ€™d rip loose.
At 230Lbs Iâ€™m a heavier larger framed guy so these feel like maxed out to me for longer runs on asphalt. For my weight the air sole is maxed, so it doesnâ€™t feel responsive and fails to return any energy from impact into the run like other cushioning systems offer. Lately been leaving them at the gym mainly for the treadmill, but I introduced them to workouts, racquetball, some basketball plus other sports and they have worked out ok for that too.
Their main weakness for me has been the stock insoles. They are weak and were trashed out in about a month. Luckily the air sole offers good cushioning after the insoles were wiped out. Much better once I replaced the crushed ones with a new pair.
Overall a really sick shoe. Probably perform better for lighter guys.
