I bought these trainers to replace my very old trainers as I've started doing more running. In the shop, they felt great, very comfortable. But it's only after running with them that you know if they are actually any good. And after a few runs, I can conclude that these trainers are no good to me - they feel like they are forcing my knees inwards and after every run I've done with these trainers, my knees have hurt (for at least a day afterwards). I went out for a run with my old trainers today and experienced no knee pain. Not sure if I can return these now as I have used them.
Unfortunately, not very comfortable. Not enough stability or support in the trainer.
Purchased on the 28/12/2020 from the Giltbrook store after speaking to a sales team member on the shop floor. I'm a mild pronator and have previously had my gait analysed multiple times when purchasing from a well known running store in Nottingham. I was assured that these shoes were suitable given the inbuilt technology, but have suffered an achilles tendon injury and ran flat footed which I've never done before Given the incorrect advice I was given instore and the unsuitable technology, what options do I have given the 2 year guarantee?
Short laces, good colour, fits okish but.......... First 5km run, suffered redness on the arch of my right foot/ankle - I actually thought there was something underneath my foot. Was going to return it but decided to change the insole. I have pictures of the redness. Since I changed the in-sole - the shoe feels more comfortable, use it every week for short runs.
I’ve worn this shoe in a few runs upto 10miles. The shoe has a comfortable and secure fit and feels good whilst running.
I am currently running 30k-40k a week and was sick of shelling out £120+ every four/five months for new trainers. I have lighter interval/race shoes but I wanted a pair of shoes that I could just get through the miles in. I needed support and a hard wearing shoe, that would allow me to run whilst keeping those ITB and knee niggles in check. These shoes do exactly that and for the price I am very happy. Nice wide toebox and had no problems with them. I ran 33k in four days last week and no blisters or chafing at all. I left the review for two months to make sure I have put some km into the shoes, before writing anything. I have run about 200 km in these shoes so far, give or take. They are holding up well, keeping their shape and the rubber sole is holding well. Nothing has started to wear through and they still look ok. I will buy the same pair, when the current ones get too worn through.
This shoe was identified as a "support" shoe, i.e. with extra support for those who overpronate. The filters on the website (now updated to pronator/neutral/supinator) picked out this shoe for me as I was looking for something to give pronation support. My first run left me with a large (bigger than a 50p piece) blister on the ball and arch of my foot. I thought maybe it was breaking them in, and tried to live with it, after all, the skin hardens eventually (until I miss running for a week, then I went back to blisters). When I eventually had a gait analysis done, the main in the shop was amazed at my claim this was a support shoe, as it clearly isn't. The footage from the gait analysis clearly showed me overpronating with no support at all from the shoe. As a shoe, it was comfortable enough - the laces are too short if you want to tie with a heal lock - so if you have a neutral gait you may get away with it. But it is not suitable for overpronators, and don't believe the website's claims to the contrary.
I am so sorry that this shoe is not right for you. If you want to return the shoe and swap it for a more suitable model. Please come in-store and we can get the right running shoe for you.
Good shoe, great value. But as with all Kalenji shoes, the boring un-inspational logo is off-putting.
I've done about 3000km in 2 previous versions of this shoe. Hard wearing and comfortable I probably kept them slightly too long.
Great trainers. Not the cheapest but very comfortable and extremely hard wearing
I have had two pairs of theses now and whilst I am not greatly disappointed, they have not lasted as long as expected and I cannot say I am fully satisfied either. I recently changed back to Asics kayano and the difference is clear, confort wise and stability wise. Theses shoes are sold as being good for over/under pronation and neutral paces. I am am over pronator myself and clearly find a lack of stability on the inside of the foot and I do not understand how you can sell a shoe that works for all type of people. I am a big fan of decathlon products and understand the effort to make products fit for all but it does not really work for me in this case
About to purchase my third pair - totally hooked on this model. Great fit, wide box, TERRIFIC grip on all surfaces, wear well, reliable. I run all distances from 5k to Ultra marathon in these, they never let me down. Light, comfortable. I am a heavier runner, so impact is always an issue, but these cope well with that extra challenge. Highly recommend. I tried a different brand, ditched them within a few days as they had awful grip in the wet (like running on ice) and felt very heavy. Kiprun LD for me, every time.
Have just bought these to replace Mizunos, which have covered 500 miles. Walked for at least a mile & seem comfortable. A little like walking on a suspended bridge, in as much as cushiony but not overly so. Now ran over 9 miles on mixed terrain & have no complaints. Everything about them is comfortable, no foot issues or aches & generally pleased with the look ( I chose the yellow option colour) & the feel.
Very comfortable good value
I was unfortunately hit by a car crossing the road and broke my leg and ankle. I'm was a keen triathlete and wanted to start back running with some shoes that would minimize the impact. I have the previous generation Kiprun LD waterproof which are brilliant but getting too hot now the sun is out, so I thought the Kiprun Long would be just as good. I was wrong, they are fabulously cushioned but are far too tight where the lacing starts so after wearing them for a whole day my toes and upper foot ache. I would have returned them but they marked from wear. Really disappointed.

K-ring: The K-ring is an exclusive rear cushioning technology in the form of a ring located in the heel. The hole in the middle disperses the shockwave.KALENSOLE: the EVA foam used in the midsole. The result of three years of research to create an exclusive composition that improves cushioning by 34%, propulsion by 25% and provides better temperature stability and durability up to 1,000 km.
K-Only: Exclusive Kalenji technology that makes our shoes suitable for every stride type thanks to the denser foam located under the first metatarsus.This innovative technology is the result of a six-month study with a sample of 372 runners conducted by the Luxembourg Institute of Health*. After 12,558 training sessions, 12,094 hours and 116,723 km of running, the study demonstrated that the K-Only technology suits all types of strides, whether they are pronator, neutral or under-pronator.
