2010 Fall Running Shoe Review Homepage

The Omni is many shoes to many people. Its moderate stability is enough for those who need motion control to counter the rate of pronation, but the midsole structure isn’t so much as to interfere with a neutral gait. The fit and arch height is also generically accepted and enjoyed, although one tester experienced some heel slip. The weight, flex and cushioning are well suited for long runs, although a bit too much for faster tempo training. “This is an everyday shoe with stability but a lot of comfort,” one tester notes.
