Hi I'm fairly heavy compared to the average fell runner, and I put down my recent knee injury to running in my ancient Roclites as they have absolutely no cushioning. I have just got some Speedcross 3 which are very cushioned, but as someone else has said they are very slippery on any sort of tarmac or stone. As most off-road races have at least a little bit tarmac, however uneven, or on a quiet road, I am not sure how good these are going to be. I am also a bit scared that a race might go over cobbles or a stone path. Our stone patio is treacherous, I can barely walk on it in them, so not sure yet whether I recommend them or not, but keeping my knee safe is my priority.

Not sure how to find out if they're precision fit or standard? I bought them in the sale. Does anybody know if it says on them? I'm happy with the fit and I have quite wide feet but I haven't run in them yet. They seem quite flexible due to the way they lace - I can leave them quite loose or pull them tight. For the race I bought them for I might run in merino socks as it'll be freezing (literally) rather than my normal twin skins.

Got something to say?
