After nearly less than 3 months, 400 km on pavements and running tracks i got a hole in the right upper mesh at the position of the big toe!
The cushion is going bad one by one and where is the propulsion that i shall get from the up bar?!
And i have never used it for any other activity than running even didn't use it for walking except to and from where i run!
June last year I replaced my road shoes. I do two 10K sets a week on these on paths and pavements in London parks, so not heavy usage, and I have raced to 1/2-Marathon distances.
On my hill spring session this week, totaling 7Km, the left shoe fabric has split from big toe, across the instep, to "arrow" symbol. I would expect better for £59.99
Otherwise they're a comfortable light-weight road shoe.
Saw a recommendation in Sorted magazine so thought I would give these shoes as go as I get running. Well pleased for the quality at the price.
Bought these after a using the gait analysis machine at Decathlon Stockport, Committed the ultimate sin wore the very next day for a 10km run and to me surprise got a PB. Can highly recommend and will be buying a new pair soon, fairly quick runner, do a 10km race nearly every weekend and 2 other runs in week, would replace every 4 - 5 months.
Bought these shoes after attending a Kalenji evening at my local Decathlon. The name and description of the shoes matches my experience spot-on.
Wore the shoes for the first time on a run around my local streets and immediately felt the difference from my previous shoes which had a lot of heavy cushioning in. These felt light and almost as if I wasn't wearing them.
The cushioning and spring in them helped my pace and I ran a really good first few Km with a much improved pace.
Love the yellow colour and fed back on the evening that I'd really like more colour options for men's shoes/
I m happy with this pair of shoes comfortable on running even after long distance of 15 or more km
Excellent running shoes and the comfort level is too good while running
The shoes has too soft soles. While running the feet starts wobbling because of the too soft cushion
Thanks for taking the time to write to us,
The sole of this shoe is designed for fast runner, but it's K-Only technology ensures good stability for long distance running as well, so normally wobbling should not happen, but we will look into it.
Your feedback is really valuable for us.
I bought a pair of these after enjoying the Kalenji Trail shoes but unfortunately found that they felt very tall and unstable as my foot hit the ground. After running less than 100 miles in my pair I had to stop using them as they caused pain to the top of my foot. This was after a 38 mile run. As soon as I put the trail shoes back on the pain left. I do like the Kalenji kit for running as a whole but will look for a road shoe closer to the feel of the trail shoes for my next purchase.
Thanks a lot for your feedback on this model and about Kalenji overall. This will help us to keep working on our Running Shoes with the product managers and engineers to keep improving and deliver the best shoes at the best price.
