Shoe technology has progressed rapidly in the last few years, particularly for runners who require support when their foot rolls inwards. It used to be the rigid anti-rollbar that did just that, but, while perfect for pronators, this made the shoe feel solid and unresponsive.
Fast-forward to 2009 and a supportive shoe like the Omni is also light, pleasingly flexible and great for moderate pronators.
By no means a racing shoe, this solid, dependable, everyday training shoe is also one that will see you through a few faster miles. A wide toe box and a flexible forefoot encourages runners to push up onto their toes, while the support and heel cushioning does a fine job in providing comfort and confidence.
It’s difficult to fault the Omni in that it’ll do exactly what it should do each and every day in just about each and every condition you’ll meet. We’d be happy to race 70.3 or longer in these or just go about everyday miles in this balanced, responsive and comfortable shoe.
