you might want to give these a try. I was surprised to say the least. was very skeptical @ first. I never got the feeling of instability with the 3's, but the mid foot wrap makes them feel really stable. the toe box is deeper, taking pressure of the metatarsals. I guess that is why I had foot irritation from the rock plate, cuz I don't even know it's there anymore. shoe rides completely different from the 3 for me. sure the increase weight is a little bit of a bummer, but I just jog along slowly anyway.
good to know... I am definitely going order.... i love to colors too!
