Although most of us roll our feet inwards (pronate) when we run longer races, super-light racing shoes frequently come without any stability. But the Advantage supply just that: enough stability to make you feel the shoes are doing the job they’re supposed to do.
From a tri point of view these are difficult to fault. You can definitely run barefoot in them, saving the bother of putting socks on in transition, while the lacing system means you just pull them on and they’re ready to go. Packed with plenty of breathable science, the shoes dry quickly, let your foot breathe, and are so flexible and friendly you can’t help but get up on your toes.
Although extreme pronators won’t enjoy the low-profile uppers and loose feel compared to conventional training shoes, they should bear in mind that the Advantages will serve them well even up to half-Iron distances.
