This shoe is well-cushioned and is especially good for small- to medium-sized runners looking for a lightweight shoe. The solid rubber forefoot sole offers excellent durability and flexibility. (Note: I have very high arches, and I've been wearing these shoes for about four years now. I love them! I'm on my 17th pair at this point.)
