The Aeolus 120s were called 120s because they were 120g so probably quite similar. I loved racing in them back when I was much lighter and faster. Shame they were only on sale for such a limited yime

Weights always seem to be around size 8 so can usually add about 20g at my size, still I googled the shoe and it looks good and surprised it was a Karrimor shoe.

Yeah the 120gs look like they were interesting. For me the H streets hit a magical combination of lightweight, thin sole that allows proprioception but thick enough you're not dodging every pebble, and, perhaps importantly, a narrow sole but fitting a wide foot.

I had a theory, maybe bonkers, that the smaller surface area with the ground perhaps ever so slgihtly concentrated the force. Put it this was, I have a pair of invivo barefoots, which had a similar weight to H streets, similar sole thickness, but a wide sole and wide fit, and they were always crap to run in (I use them as slippers now ha!) And it was like how can basically two very siimilar shoes offer two very different running experiences, in speed work I was also slow in the Invivos, despite being dead excited about them at first, and the H streets I'm always fast, despite at times being skeptical about them.

Chris - As I said across the page, the Floatride Run Fast Pro is an option.

Actually the narrowing in the arch area was one the reasons that the Salon wasn't right for me.

Got something to say?
