Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 February 2021
Being a average Runner for the past 6 years running regular 5km and10kms with various 1/2 and full marathons achieved I have gone through a lot of running shoes now at all budgets and these as I’m not training for any events plus 90% treadmill running I needed to retire my amazing ASICS Nimbus 21 seeing as they have done over 1000kms. So thought I need a stop gap shoe at the low end of the budget running shoes. I heard great things of New Balance shoes and the 680v6 having good reviews I thought worth a try at this amazing price (£44!). Used for typical week now here are my first impressions:
Positives - LOVE the look and build quality is great. Felt fast and form seemed better.
Seem light weight similar to previous Nike Pegasus
Stability and grip good even at my size
Negatives - straight away felt lacking in cushioning, feel a hard minimal shoe and after a week of running a mix of fast 5kms and slow recovery 12kms I have noticed minor feet aches and to be honest wanting to put my old 1000km ASICS back on! On the treadmill you can actually hear the harder soles banging the tread plate making me think I should’ve spent more especially if I’m think of doing longer distances. I have actually bought now new running socks that have helped which cost me £15 so I think I should have splashed some more cash. Maybe the soles foam will get softer I’m just hoping my previous run limiting injuries (shin splints) does come back again during that time.

Overall I wish I could have rated better as they look great and at this value I’d hoped for better as I have in the past bought shoes such as the Nike Dual Fusion 2 at this price and ran 1/2 marathons feeling fresh. My advice if you a larger sized runner running approx. 4-5 times a week over 10kms this isn’t the shoe, don’t skimp get them £90 plus higher end trainers as these will be my short fast pace shoes. I’m sure if you a 150 pounder whippet these are really good for any application and probably the best value shoe out there but for me I can’t recommend unfortunately.
