These are 2016 release. Although they are on reduce to clear they far better shoes based on my running experience. I was pro ASICS runner. But since I have these lightweight shoes, I love them for my all kind of runs from 10K to half marathons..

Good price. Is there a problem running in these for longer than half marathon runs?

​Depends on your running style and weight, I have done a few 20 + mile training runs in them and had no problems.
They have very little shock absorption, soles wear out quickly and have no motion control. Unless you have neutral movement, I would avoid though they would be fine for casual wear.

just curious. Did you used these pair of shoes? or just comments by looking at the picture? Believe or not they are best pairs don't go looks.

Anyway, I do not like to misguide anyone. Not all shoes perfect for everyone. They comes with all variety of shapes, cushions, arcs...etc. In the beginning every other type of shoe will have discomfort as they pull different muscles based on the many factors. in short It is just like shoe bites. If you are planning for any big event I would suggest always go with pairs you already wore at least for 4 weeks (daily). Most beginners makes mistake by buying new pair of shoes for marathon and which is wrong practice.

If you want to be professional runner keep all sort of shoes in your shoe rack and use them alternate week. This will make you enjoy every run and keep your feet healthy.
I have a pair of these shoes and also had the previous years ones. I am a qualified athletics coach and would only recommend lightweight shoes for races as they have very little shock absorption you need to protect you on long training runs. If you are serious about running go to a proper runners shop and have your gate analysed and get the shoes that are designed for your motion, which should avoid injury.
