Good to know they last a long time, I did a WOD @ CrossFit SoCal today with 1 mile of running broken up into 800m.
I find you are forced to have correct technique, which is something I'm working on anyways. They were fine in sharp turns, even with me dripping in sweat. I will agree, I think it is smart to ease into longer runs, as even the shorter runs, I am noticing that now since a full on shoe isn't acting as part of the shock absorber, my legs and hips feel the ground more. I'm looking forward to having these a long time.
