I live in the North Eastern part of the United States. Here it is pretty much a given that any serious runner is going to end up running in bad weather. As a result, it is a really good idea to have a good pair of running shoes for cold, wet, snowy and muddy conditions.
The F-Lite 220 was designed as an urban and off-road racing flat. As an urban racing flat, I think they are a bit too much, but as an off road racing flat they are very well designed. Let's see how well they match my criteria for a good Pose Running shoe.
- Low heal rise - Check
- Thin soles - The soles, especially in the forefoot, is a little thicker than I like, but they are acceptable.
- Flexible - These shoes are a little stiffer than I prefer, but again they are acceptable.
- Light weight - They are also a little heavier than I like, but also well within the acceptable range.
