Don't care about version. 5.5. The only ones I can find are in the US, and I don't want to order from there without trying them on because they have differnt widths and freakily differnt sizes :-)

Anyway, this is beside the point. It doesn't change the fact that the new soe thing is rubbish!

I have exported my training and am going through each log that I could have used them on one by one. Only 152 entries to go :-/

Gosh, they really are hard to find!

Seems hopeful then you click through and it either says out of stock or DC'd.

Rubbish :-(

Check out the Pegasus though, I know they are a neutral shoe but I think they are pretty supportive.

What size are you Pootle? I've got a pair of size 6s that are way too small for me, 39 miles on them.
The Equalons were lovely and I'm gutted that they haven't replaced them, for me they don't feel anything like the Pegasus. I've gone over to Asics now, Kayanos are brilliant (but pricey).

Can't wear Asics, they eat the bottom/side of my massive clown feet :-(

Thanks for the offer Iris, but I've tried 6's and can't get on with them. I'm 5.5 or not al all. Pah. It's like the princess and the pea, except I bet she didn't have ugly feet.

Anyhoo, I have just spent the last few hours going through my log and updating my shoes run by run. Last time I don't bother to add a new pair of shoes, I can tell you.
