good basic running shoe

This is a comfortable running shoe. I was looking for something that's not flimsy and insubstantial the way most companies have started making running shoes. This one offers good support. It does run a tad large, so if you're between a 7.5 and 8 and you like your sneakers snug go ahead and order the smaller size!
ProsValue for money, Perfect fit
Yes, I recommend this product.

Review 2 for Descendant v1.5 Women's Running Shoes

Sadly, these did not meet my expectations
Age:35 to 44
I liked how these sneakers looked in the photo, but when I received them I was disappointed by how cheap they looked and felt, especially compared to the pair of Pumas that I have loved worn out, and need to replace. The styling of this shoe is very generic (like something you'd find at a discount department store), the materials look flimsy, there is no arch support and very little cushioning. Additionally, they are cut high on the sides and press into my ankle bones. I will be returning these.
ConsExpensive, poor quality, no arch support, very little cushioning
