These are working for me. I think that I am running on the outside of my left foot on which I have a painful heel spur. The cushioning seems adequate although I would like to try something with more padding for that condition. Of course, just like 98% plus other running shoes they are ferocious ugly with esthetics conjured up by your typical no talent corporate poobutts who wage unholy mediocrity upon our present age. I run after dark, and hide them in my closet when I am not running.
