Wheabs - I took knife ans scissors to mine and removed the bit across the front of the shoe to allow it to spread. They fit a lot better now.
I use mine to play hockey in on astro turf as they grip very well. I might try them on the track as well, see if they grip that better than my other trainers.

Thanks Bikermouse - I wasn't sure they would stay in one piece if I removed that bit but they seem a bit more durable than my initial estimates. Run about 70 miles on them (longest run 11 miles) and they seem to fit a bit better now. I may try to modify them when they get closer to their end-of-life to see what happens.

Got something to say?
