A neutral racer, the Distania, A.K.A., the Distance, provides a secure heel and instep yet ample toe box in a lightweight package designed to reward forefoot running. Our test team recommends it as a “training flat” or racing shoe but say that the forefoot rebound takes some getting used to. The shoe comes across as “the perfect set-up” with a few durability concerns, which would be mitigated if the shoe were limited to race and speed session days. Its breathable upper makes it a good choice for running in hotter climes.
