      Shirfan, I think they have enough support for a half marathon, maybe more, and are more responsive than the Kinvaras (lil firmer).  I just don't want the race to be the first time I take them to that distance and have something go wrong.  I have another half scheduled on 4/13, so after the Shamrock, I'll get some more miles on the Fastwitchs and a couple of long runs and see how they do, then use 'em for the Dismal Swamp Stomp.

      Just Keep "Tri" ing

        I thought the 13s were a little narrower through the toebox than the 12s (I think I started with the 9s, maybe?). I have also had several pair of identical shoes - I just label the tongue with a Sharpie.
        The shoes I've found that rotate in well with the Cumulus have been Saucony ProGrid Rides (a bit cheaper, a bit heavier), Asics Gel Landreth (took a bit of getting used to), and NB 1080s (which I have only bought the v1s, deeply discounted, since they retail around $130).

        Thanks Shari! I have tried the Sharpie but it always seems to wear off for me, that's why I use the different

        color laces and the ribbons. Plus that way I can see immediately which pair they are in the closet. Maybe I

        need a new Sharpie!LOL

         

        I wear a 8.5 D width so since mine are wide anyway I guess I didn't notice a difference in the 13's.

         

        I think my favorite color was the 11's, with the pretty orange accents.

         

        I can't wear NB. My feet just hate them for some reason.

         

        If the 14's feel drastically different to me I will give the ProGrid a try. Hubby switches between Asics and

        Saucony but I've never been brave enough to branch out from my beloved Cumulus.

          I'm glad runningwarehouse sends a return label just incase, I will try the Cumulus 14s out either during my 7 mile tempo or my Friday easy run and if they give me any trouble at all I'll just ship them back and buy another pair of the Gel-Burrs in a different color Smile . The Pearl Izumis are still on probation but I will know for sure after Monday's run.
