Amazing comfortable light shoe

I was using these shoes whole summer, i run about 500km, mostly in forests and hills but also in rocky mountains.
Best thing about these shoes for me is that the heelcup is soft and is basicly blisterproof, also its a good shoe if you want so switch to minimalist shoes but you dont want to jump straight into zedo-drop shoes.
Its very light, very comfy.
The good and the bad thing at the same time is that sole is pretty soft and you can feel the terrain, so you need to be careful not to jump on sharp rocks. Grip is good on rock, forest trails etc. Not good in wet mud, even though i used them in wet conditions too, but you must be careful.
Upper material seems durable, no tears or holes yet :)

Super light weight versatile trainer.

Excellent light weight shoe. On my third pair now, ideal for long training runs either on or off road. I also do road races in these.

for me was a downgrade from helios 1

1. The front is narrower then helios 1. As a direct effect, my bigger toes hurts on the side, even if the shoe length size is fine. Since I had to run few km in them to actually feel this, I no longer can return them :(
2. The first version had a rubber piece on the back, just on top of it (very important) to help you put the heel in. The new helios 2, ditched this, and put a different fabric, a bit lower on the back of the shoe, comparing to helios 1, which doesn’t help at all putting the heel inside. Au contraire.
3. The new lacing system. If they are going to copy salomon shoes, at least put a mesh on top, to put the rest of the lace under it. Also I usually like to use a different lacing pattern, and this new lacing system doesn’t allow me by default to take the laces out and put it my way.

    Not comfortable

Diffiult to imagine who this would fit

I normally run in Salomon Sense and was looking for sturdier racing shoe but toebox both narrow and shallow - horrible fit. Tried Helios SR whih is 10 grams heavier with 2mm drop and so far seem great
