The V-Lite Altitude came as a bit of a surprise, with its great comfort levels, and not needing much breaking in. There is a good amount of flex in the toe section and a good roll at the toes to help propel you forward. The midsole is stiffer and more supportive, with decent shock absorbing under the heel. They are very roomy with a cavernous toe box and mid-section, so try them carefully before buying or risk never achieving a snug fit. The ion-mask proofing kept the wet at bay very well.
