I've not had any injuries or additional pains from the new shoes, but not sure that I really enjoy them more than the other ones I wear. They definitely are lighter, but they have less cushioning than I am used to and enjoy too.

I guess the jury is still out, I'm still trying them. I've only run 4 miles at a time at most in them though so far.
