These shoes are very light for the amount of stability/support they provide. Lateral movement in them is great. They also seem to live up to the outsole guarantee based on the design and feel, butI haven't had them long enough to truly put it to the test. On the downside, the toe box is a bit large, but my impression may be biased because my old Barricades were very snug. The fit is at best true to size and at worst about a half size large. I solved this problem by replacing the insole with a thicker one, and now the shoes fit and feel great. Overall, great shoe for those looking for a light shoe with good support and stability.
