PRODUCT REVIEW – SHARON (PLOD HOPPER) R4W UK Gear – PT-03 Desert – Hot environment running shoe – structured cushioning sandproof
Cushioning – The PT-03 Desert running shoe is very well cushioned especially the heal area which cushions impact extremely well also good comfort around the toe area and supports the arch well. Score 5/5
Comfort – I was extremely surprised at how comfortable these shoes are. They have a look of walking shoes and I was worried that they would be heavy and uncomfortable. They are actually one of the most comfortable running shoes I have tried due to the cushioning and support around the heal area. I am a slight over-pronator and found the shoes supported my feet exactly where needed. Score 5/5
Grip/Responsiveness – Good grip and very responsive and flexible. Score 5/5
Suitability – The only reason I have given a 4 is they are not suitable for winter running for obvious reasons they get a 5/5 for the purpose they were made for and that is running in hot climates and desert areas. If I was running in the Marathon de Sables these would be my running shoes of choice. Score 4/5
OVERALL – Due to the UK weather conditions the last week I had to trial these shoes on a treadmill which will have, in a way, simulated hot arid climates that they are designed for. I was very impressed with the shoes and how comfortable they are. My feet felt dry and fresh after a run. As they look quite bulky I was very surprised at how light they are to wear and did not notice a difference in weight between these and my usual running shoes. Score 5/5
