An unsung hero, the Attack is almost generic and yet is a hit across the board when it comes to a comfortable fit, resilient feel and outstanding performance—all in a lightweight neutral, low-profile package that is good for marathon distance or even longer. Testers enjoyed the aptly named smooth fit, which is slightly more giving than a standard racing flat but still conforming and containing enough for a higher cadence without slop. The low-profile feel is offset by simple and firm cushioning and the no-frills midsole translates to an efficient, smooth-transitioning stride for many a mile.
