Rediscover your stride.
Cycling's been your main sport for years now, and you don't see that changing anytime soon. But with some insistent persuasion from your riding crew, you've decided training for a few tri's doesn't sound like a bad way to spend your summer. If it's been a few years since you've done any sort of running, then impossibly light, flexible running shoes like Diadora's Hawk 5 Podium Running Shoes probably look slightly foreign to you.
The shoe's lightweight, breathable upper provides an airy fit across the top of your foot, while a molded EVA sole absorbs impact to give you a springy, cushy platform to rediscover your stride on. While these aren't the shoes we'd recommend jumping into long distance training with, they make a versatile short-day shoe and something you could throw into your race bag to wear on the podium after you finish your next road race.

- Q & A
good fitness shoes
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
They run just a tad big, barely. I think they are ok for a first running shoe if you're on a budget but not anything serious. They make a great shoe for the gym.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 9.5
They are as advertised - a cool cushy shoe for light duty. I like em. Started to fall apart immediately however - lace was ripped, tongue lace holder came unstitched - nothing catastrophic, just disappointing in a new pair of kicks.
