I was looking for running shoes for distances of around 10-15 K, and the person in the running department convinced me to buy these and said he'd run several marathons in them. He also said these shoes support over-pronation and all other stride types for that matter, and that the special cushioning supports the knees. I tested the shoes on the in-store treadmill for a few minutes and they seemed okay. But I was wrong. They don't provide enough support for longer durations. I've done 5 runs in them, and the experience has been painful. Foot arc pain (in spite of the ArkStab support), shin splints, heel pain, and ankle pain during and after the runs. It felt like there was no cushioning or support whatsoever, and no flexibility in the front of the shoe. Also, the shoe is quite heavy once you hit longer distances and it feels like you are supporting the weight of the shoe instead of vice versa. I felt this on the first two runs itself, and did a couple others just to make sure it was indeed the shoe. And this happened every time I used the shoe. Disappointed, as this is one of the more expensive shoes in Decathlons running range, and I bought it only at the insistence of the person in the running department that these shoes were supportive based on his experience. I've been a long-time Decathlon customer, and would always recommend their products, but this one is the rare exception.

So far I’m extremely happy with these shoes. Fantastic cushioning and support. Will be interesting to see how well they last.
I've had these for a month now, and done various road runs of 60-100mins. I find them comfy and no problems as yet. I take a size 39 in normal shoes but always go with size 40 for running so chose size 40 again. Before this I had to return a non-Decathlon pair for being too narrow so was pleased to find some that feel right as I like space around my toes.
These were too narrow for me but I do have wide feet. Returned without any problems.
Great pair of shoes. Excellent recommendation. I always have a great time when I visit this particular store in Amritsar Everyone is veryknowledgeble. And humble at the same time. The shoes are excellent. Thanks ARIF WILLIAMS
HAD TO GET A SIZE 43 USUALLY IN 42 BUT VERY COMFORTABLE
Thank you very much for taking your time to write this review. It's always nice to hear that our customers are happy with our products.
Bought the shoes UK 8 for my FM coming in August. Tried running in them but was struggling in the end as the shoes is too heavy. Disappointed on investing the money on it .
Good supportive shoe for beggingers
I have run several marathons in the Kalenji LONG shoe range. I have the previous two versions of these shoes too. They are the perfect 6.5 uk size for me. However, I was slightly disappointed that the laces on these trainers tend to come off rather easily even when tied tight. Also, the grip on the soles seems to have been slightly changed - it's less grippy on wet surfaces/wet tarmac slightly. I am looking forward to the new version of these shoes. I do over 1000 miles a year and easily go through a couple of pairs of shoes per year. I've stopped wasting money on any other branded shoes as these fit me best. I have seen a few reviews that these shoes may have caused some users pain in their hips, etc. A lot of running coaches will always say that it's not usually a shoe that is the cause of most aches or pains - strength training is very important (glutes exercises, squats, hip exercises) and most runners ignore these and often blame the shoe. I, too, was one of those! Not any more tho - strength training has made me a stronger and better runner. And I stick to Kalenji shoes :) Job done.
I have had these shones a couple of weeks and run about 45Kim in them so far. They are very comfy, I would but then again.
I got these shoes a couple of weeks ago. I’ve worn them a few times and I was pleased with them. They felt springy and comfortable. But I did a 10k today and I was in agony. My right foot has a huge blister on the inside at the front just above the arch. The inside of the right shoe felt hard. So disappointed in these shoes because I had raced about them at first and I bought them for longer distances.
Thanks for your feedback, it is really valuable to us. I have already passed the feedback on this model to the Product Managers, who are already working on the improvement of this model to avoid this issue.
Do not hesitate to visit your local store and speak to our Sport Expert in Running, to see the issues with the Shoes, and to potentially find a model which suits you best.

Kiprun Long Review I used to wear size 37 but this time I chose to wear size 38 since it's my first long run. I got blisters that surprised me because I don't normally have them even in trail ultras. The reason might be the fact that I was not able to break them in. Flexibility, Stability, Cushioning Forefoot sole is flexible for easy propulsion. Switching steps made essy when overtaking other runners. Arc stab in the midsole gives stability and helped me maintain my pace for a long period. Heel has enough cushioning to protect the feet from getting or worsening calluses. Also, the good cushioning of the shoes prevented added injury to my knees. The impact of the run is lesser making it possible for me to finish the race not being worn out. Grip The grip is outstanding. I can even hear a screeching sound on smooth surface, proving itself to be non-slip. Aesthetic As a runner, it is also important for me to have good pictures during the event. The shoes made me look "bad ass". Also it was easy for me to choose my apparel because of the neutral color. Rating: 9/10 Kiprun Long is the go-to SHOES for performance running.
Always buy Asics Gel Kayano for overpronation running trainers. Like running on a cushion. Decathlon haven't had any for ages. Asked lady in running dept for other overpronation options. She said the Kiprun Long are made with support for neutral, under or over pronation. Decathlon supposedly done lots of research on this. Lady said she has run a marathon in them. OK she convinced me to buy them. Done 3 runs. Agony. I can feel my feet over pronating as I run and no support to help them. Left side hip joint agony which is quite often caused by overpronation. Right side achilles pain, ankle pain and shin splints. Feels like I am running bear foot on the pavements, roads with no shoes on at all. Usually only get shin splints when my trainers need replacing when I have run miles in them.You get what you pay for. 59.99 against 159.99 for Asics Gel Kayano. Trouble is I have now taken label off but can't run in them so I have wasted my money. Also laces not long enough to double bow so they keep coming undone at least every half mile.
