Terrex Fast R Mid GTX Shoes
I originally purchased this shoe in Solar Red. Let me tell you. There is no red in that shoe. It's pink. Hot pink. My 4 1/2 y/o son said "Daddy, why did you buy pink shoes?". So, if a child thinks its pink...its pink. HOWEVER, after returning those and getting the Black/White pair, the shoes have been fantastic running in. I've put about 50 miles in them so far and they are holding up great and really have a great energy return, especially as you increase your pace. They are light and wrap your foot rather well. As others have pointed out, they do feel pretty tight. I wear a size 15 shoe and this is borderline too small for me and unfortunately they don't make a size 16. However, my feet aren't moving around in the shoe thus not causing blisters, so that is a plus. The only downside that I've seen so far is there is little traction on any wet surface.
