Bought in a sale at the beginning of the year, when I was marathon training. Didn’t have much expectation, and wasn’t keen on the boring blue colour. Bought a half size bigger to allow for feet swelling. Well I’ve run over 1000kms in them, and they still have quite a bit of life in them. They have done me proud, no injuries, no blisters, no holes anywhere and still quite a bit of tread left,. Even at their normal price, I’ve had more wear in them than previous branded shoes I’ve bought
I'm a neutral runner and run around 30-35 miles per week. The shoes are fine - a little less roll/propulsion than I might like, but nothing to complain about. My problem with the shoes is that the hard plastic part in the mid-sole has started to squeak, on each foot strike (started at around 100 miles). On both feet. Can be overcome with loud music, but is pretty annoying and as a result I would not buy these again.
These shoes are supposed to be good for a mid to long run. I have run a max of 5 miles in these on each run and find that they make the balls of feet sore and even blister and I’ve only done a total of 80 miles in them.
I bought last year's model in the sales as an impulse purchase, after liking the look of them and trying them on in store. They're really comfortable, probably even more so than my main shoe, the Brooks Adrenaline. I have narrow feet and overpronate. I use superfeet insoles in all my running shoes, including these. I've run probably 150 miles in them so far. I tend to use them for runs up to 10 miles, though that's simply because I prefer to wear my adrenalines for longer runs as they're specifically for over pronators. I'm sure they'd be fine over 10 miles though. The grip felt a bit off at 1st but improved after a bit of use. I'll be keeping an eye in the sales later in the year for another bargain, though you can't really complain at the current price.
I've had these for a month now, and done various road runs of 60-100mins. I find them comfy and no problems as yet. I take a size 39 in normal shoes but always go with size 40 for running so chose size 40 again. Before this I had to return a non-Decathlon pair for being too narrow so was pleased to find some that feel right as I like space around my toes.
These were too narrow for me but I do have wide feet. Returned without any problems.
HAD TO GET A SIZE 43 USUALLY IN 42 BUT VERY COMFORTABLE
Thank you very much for taking your time to write this review. It's always nice to hear that our customers are happy with our products.
I have run several marathons in the Kalenji LONG shoe range. I have the previous two versions of these shoes too. They are the perfect 6.5 uk size for me. However, I was slightly disappointed that the laces on these trainers tend to come off rather easily even when tied tight. Also, the grip on the soles seems to have been slightly changed - it's less grippy on wet surfaces/wet tarmac slightly. I am looking forward to the new version of these shoes. I do over 1000 miles a year and easily go through a couple of pairs of shoes per year. I've stopped wasting money on any other branded shoes as these fit me best. I have seen a few reviews that these shoes may have caused some users pain in their hips, etc. A lot of running coaches will always say that it's not usually a shoe that is the cause of most aches or pains - strength training is very important (glutes exercises, squats, hip exercises) and most runners ignore these and often blame the shoe. I, too, was one of those! Not any more tho - strength training has made me a stronger and better runner. And I stick to Kalenji shoes :) Job done.
I have had these shones a couple of weeks and run about 45Kim in them so far. They are very comfy, I would but then again.
I got these shoes a couple of weeks ago. I’ve worn them a few times and I was pleased with them. They felt springy and comfortable. But I did a 10k today and I was in agony. My right foot has a huge blister on the inside at the front just above the arch. The inside of the right shoe felt hard. So disappointed in these shoes because I had raced about them at first and I bought them for longer distances.
Thanks for your feedback, it is really valuable to us. I have already passed the feedback on this model to the Product Managers, who are already working on the improvement of this model to avoid this issue.

Always buy Asics Gel Kayano for overpronation running trainers. Like running on a cushion. Decathlon haven't had any for ages. Asked lady in running dept for other overpronation options. She said the Kiprun Long are made with support for neutral, under or over pronation. Decathlon supposedly done lots of research on this. Lady said she has run a marathon in them. OK she convinced me to buy them. Done 3 runs. Agony. I can feel my feet over pronating as I run and no support to help them. Left side hip joint agony which is quite often caused by overpronation. Right side achilles pain, ankle pain and shin splints. Feels like I am running bear foot on the pavements, roads with no shoes on at all. Usually only get shin splints when my trainers need replacing when I have run miles in them.You get what you pay for. 59.99 against 159.99 for Asics Gel Kayano. Trouble is I have now taken label off but can't run in them so I have wasted my money. Also laces not long enough to double bow so they keep coming undone at least every half mile.

I'm a supinator and overweight and have hypermobility. Yay, great combo! These are genuinely the only running shoes I've had that work for all of these issues. Comfortable, supportive in the right places, with enough wiggle room in the other right places. Great shoe. Gonna buy a backup pair!
I had the previous version of these - loved them and wore them until they wore out. bought these a few weeks ago - can't wear them - feet are in agony they cause me so much discomfort. I have plenty of room in the toes but have constant pins and needles, building to a lot of pain. disappointed this time
