Remarkably cushioned for a lightweight trainer that is also well suited for marathon racing, the Blade Light Run is flagged by testers as a breezy and “all-around comfortable shoe for someone who does not require much arch support.” The Blade saves weight by using a low-profile combination outsole and midsole compound that results in a flexible and resilient sensation and is ideal for tempo runs, but the generous upper was a little lax on lateral hold. It’s a good shoe for those with wider feet.
