This is not the most technical shoe out there but I think it is probably one of the better all-around trainers. Durability is what makes the 993 stand out to me. I get more mileage out of a 993 than any other shoe I've worn and the fit is pretty neutral, so works well for me. While the shoe is heavy, it also lasts forever. So put a few hundred miles of running on these then wear them as casual shoes for the next 5 years and they will probably still look just fine. These are a good buy at full price, but a no brainer at discount.
