Customer reviewsSevere upper heel irritation due to poor design
I actually like this shoe on a number of levels, but, would not buy again due to the significant irritation that comes from a design flaw in the heel section. The heel hold is made with a very rigid plastic which, in itself, is fine. The problem is that the achilles dip - the u-shaped contour on the back of the heel hold - is very high and angled toward your leg. The combination of the rigid construction and high, angled top of the heel hold results in an effective knife that digs into the area about a half-inch above your heel on every step. This is not a case of friction due to poor fit. The shoe size is just right and the irritation does not cause blisters, rather, a horizontal cut on your leg. I ve remedied this by applying bandages to the affected area of my leg before runs. On a recent run when I didn t have access to bandages, I had to stop after 2 miles due to the pain. Both legs were bleeding. I ve done over 40 runs with these shoes, so, it does not appear that this is a break in issue.
