Adizero Hagio 2 Shoes
Great shoe but doesn't fit women well
I LOVE these shoes for street running. They're light, perfect drop, and they never get slippery when you hit a water slick. However, the advice for women to order one size down is incorrect. I purchased these in my regular size and the room in the toe box is perfect. However, they are randomly too wide in the mid-foot and heel, and they don't have the extra eyelet to cinch the tops like most running shoes. If I run more than 4 miles in them sans duct tape, I end up with nasty blood blisters on my insteps. I also find myself trying to cinch the laces as tight as possible to get a better fit through both the mid-foot and the heel, which is less than optimal on longer runs.

Incredibly light and with that snug Adidas fit I like. Surprisingly rigid on top, thanks to the thin, solid material much of the shoe is made of. I think you'd have to be a top-flight runner to do lots of miles in these: they're very flat and have a firm ride. I wear them for 5k races and the occasional short training/sprint session. The arch support is the lowest of any of the many shoes I've owned (Nike Frees, Saucony Kinvara, Brooks Pure Connect). If I had to run more than a few miles in them, I'd look into raising the arch slightly.

Lightest shoe ever owned, this is one of two new purchases from Adidas both having a positive experience. The other surprise is how snug they fit while remaining comfortable. Would buy again after having a couple of test runs underway.

Great racing flat for neutral runner
I have run many races from 2 miles to half marathons in these shoes. Feels great at race speed, not as much when going slowly. A good shoe if you have good racing form as it is stiff with little cushioning (it is a racing flat, after all). More mid-foot support than most racing flats. Excellent wet traction on roads. I would not recommend this shoe for novice runners. I use a half size larger in this shoe than with my street shoes and other running shoes (10.5 vs 10).

Brilliant pair of shoes, very light and a perfect fit. Unfortunately I was looking for a red pair of trainers, these are orange!

lightweight and fast are what this shoes sells; And that is what you get. Hard to find, but well worth the wait!
