5.0 out of 5 stars Great neutral shoe, 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wide fit D was good choice , it feels wider than a New Balance D fitting and this is my first pair of Brooks. Shoe itself is great to run in, it is extremely light...it feels absent almost. Good grip in the rain on road surface, laces stay fastened in single bow on long run, no adjustment necessary during run.

Colour is really drab and boring,...but this is forgiven by the extremely comfortable performance. I would recommend these shoes.

BEWARE!
I must edit my original review as after only 50 miles of road running ( which is around ten hours wear for me) the blu/ black grip sole is peeling off one shoe. I hope this is a one off for Brooks but it is not acceptable for a shoe costing any amount, not least a shoe of around 110. I sadly could not now recommend them...which is a real shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT a "Wide" fitting!, 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite the product description including "W" , this is the narrow fitting shoe! And it is very narrow! Shoes sent back at my cost :-( .

5.0 out of 5 stars Like nothing you will have read,....ever! Brilliant!, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wholly original idea with a simple, matter of fact style of narrative, which gives the situational comedic episodes real punch. Beautifully written and refreshing plot and a real joy to turn each page. Characters strange but also strangely likeable. SURELY there has to be a screenplay due out any day!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Velcro too strong for the glue!, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product would be great if the adhesive were stronger. The Velcro is really strong but the stick on adhesive cannot cope with the strength of the Velcro. When you pull the Velcro apart the Velcro sides remain largely stuck together but the glue side pulls off whatever you have adhered it to. Poor design!
