      Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi EM Road N 1 Running Shoe:

      I am a 60 year old runner and have been running for over 20 years. I have been using the N1 as an everyday training shoe. This is the most comfortable shoe that I have experienced. I am use to running is soft cushioned shoes like the Saucony Ride, these shoes do not have that much cushioning but it does not matter. The ride is amazing. I purchased these because many of my running buddies had said such great things about them. I was skeptical because of the lack of soft cushioning. After breaking the shoes in with a couple of 6 mile runs, my skepticism vanished. They are just fantastic running shoes. I also have a wider foot and the comfortable upper accommodates that. I hope they don't change much about them.
      My only concern is how long they will last. I have heard various opinions on that.
      I certainly would recommend these shoes.

        Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi EM Road N 1 Running Shoe:

        I have been running in Asics for several years and while happy with them, they just wear out too quickly. After just 200 miles on my last pair, I decided to try somehting different.

        I looked at Mizuno and Pearl Izumi. These felt great so I took a chance.

        I have run 2 half marathons and 2 full marathons on them and they have 435 miles on them and are still in great condition.

        I disagree with the previous review... these shoes are light and very fast... and they have amazing traction. This is a race shoe all the way. They are super quiet on the road.

        This is by FAR the best shoe I have ever owned for the money. I will be buying another pair!

          Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi EM Road N 1 Running Shoe:

          I'm a bit larger, more muscular runner. Also a Chi Running instructor. I strongly believe in an effortless, mid foot strike. These shoes are spectacular. I used to me a Kinvara disciple, but after running in these shoes for 50+ miles I picked up another pair. There's a great natural "roll-up" from mid foot to fore foot. You can always immediately tell when you heel strike. This shoe encourages great form. It's light enough, and unbelievably comfortable without being too soft or squishy. You can really feel the road too. I love these. So glad I stumbled onto these shoes. They will be my go-to road shoe for a long time. Pearl Izumi nailed it on this one.

          Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi EM Road N 1 Running Shoe:

          I use these as a stable shoe, my other shoe being the new balance minimus zero road. It's the cadillac of minimals, meaning that they are probably the clunkiest and most comfortable of the pack. They are not fast, so I would not recommend for race day. The toe box is roomy, but comes with a price. The toe reduces the speed of the shoe, being as it resembles the grill of a '87 full size sedan. They are soft and handle 10 milers with relative ease; haven't went over ten in them yet. All in all I would recommend this shoe to the person with large feet looking for a minimal to kinda get in the game. The new balance minimus zeros have spoiled me with speed and flexibility, so my comments may be a bit biased. There will never be a minimal like the zeros, but the Izumi roads are probably in 3rd place in my opinion. Number 2 being the nike lunar racer+2's.
