I recently decided to start running which meant I needed to purchase some new running shoes. Having a fairly strict budget, I settled on these as they were both within my budget and (from the reviews that I found) they seemed like a good shoe to start with. After a couple of wears I have found them comfy and I reckon they will nicely get me through my first "race" (a 5km fun-run - as a beginner I won't be challenging for the win!).
The advice to buy a size up is good advice. Like the other review I did so (being a 7 in Brooks I got the small 8) and I reckon that was the right choice - while I might have got into the 7 I don't think I would have had much "toe-room" to run in - in the 8 this isn't a problem.
