Light and fast and comfortable

My 3rd pair of X3's and work extremely well for distance, both trail and road. Took me longer than usual to break this pair in; got blisters for the first couple seeks but then became very comfortable with them.

Light and fast

Took 10 seconds off my mile pace. Warning though: took 3 weeks of blisters and band aids before they were broken in. Fit like a glove now.
