Dynafit Feline Up Pro
240g (UK 9.5)
Out of the greyhound stable of shoes, Dynafit describe these lightweight shoes as perfect for vertical running and we’re going to do nothing to change that opinion, although Vertical Kilometres were few and far between for our testing team! These are almost like cross-country spikes from last century such is their low profile (a 4mm drop) and tight fit, but that’s not at the expense of cushioning. The Vibram Megagrip sole provides an acceptably cushioned ride despite it saving 25% of the shoe’s weight. You will need moderately dry conditions to fully benefit from the grip – OK in mud but great on drier paths.
Verdict: Love them for what they are: racing machines.
