Thanks in advance
I have no experience with them for running but I do use them for DLs. With running, it's recommended that a person breaks in to them gradually, especially if they have been using padded/heeled running shoes, since their running style will tend to be a heel strike style and that's an incorrect running style and will present more joint problems if done in flat footwear.
