These are great, were my running shoes when I put a few hundred miles on them. Lasted great, aired out if I ever accidentally stomped in a puddle, and really helped eliminate my shin splints. I've since upped my mileage and these were able to keep up for a little while before I had to replace them due to mileage. Highly recommended for someone starting out in running (like I was) and wanting to get rid of shin splints.
I have a pretty neutral stride, and these worked great. As much as I hate to say it, if you aren't sure about your stride it's worth skipping the deal until you can get that checked out at a running store. But if you know, then these'll be great.
Size wise, they were about what my regular running shoe size is, which is about my regular shoe size (I straddle 11 and 10 1/2).
