absorbs shock from head-to-toe so you can run that extra mile.

Not crazy about colors. They're hard to distinguish online. That's the only thing that is frustrating to me, I have been buying gdefy for about 15years. I've tried all the suspension type shoes; Spira, Z-COIL, etc...These ARE TRULY the BEST MADE, AND KEEP ON IMPROVING EVERY YEAR! EVERY NEXT GEN. IS NOT THE SAME OLD.THEY ARE TRULY ALWAYS CHANGING and I have never seen them go BACKWARDS in any AREA of DEVELOPMENT! YOU WILL NEVER BE DISAPPOINTED INTHIS PRODUCT! Only trying to distinguish true color, is difficult? I honestly wish they would use a larger COLOR- WHEEL..That could possibly increase sales.Out at G.M.(GENERAL MOTORS), where I pounded the CONCRETE FLOORS for 37years. The guys and gals would always say they LOVED the shoes when they got some theirselves, but were disappointed in the colors...GOD BLESS Y'ALL

Very comfortable


Light weight and very comfortable

Much hype, but low actual performance.


I have no idea what the others meant by this shoes performance but I've been running for over 25 years, and have been buying these shoes for over 5, and these particular pair here are...I've gotta tell you...pretty sub-par by comparison. They're easily damaged, lack support in the little cloud bubbles when compared to any other running shoe that I've tried on the market, and the lateral stability is absolutely bland to the point of instability. The only thing decent about thr XLR8s is the much lower price(for good reason) and the everyday walking around comfort. They're basically fancy "grocery getters" or for leisure jaunts around the mall.

Excellent comfort and pain relief.


The XLR8 is the most comfortable running shoe I’ve ever owned. I run on average five miles a day, and for me personally the fit is exactly what I needed. The only Issue I have is the durability of the shoe. My first pair only lasted a couple of months before there was basically very little sole left. Compared to my New Balance that I ran on for 8 months prior, the durability is not there. That being said GDEFY was more than happy to exchange them for a new pair. That was back in January. Two shipments of the wrong size later and I’m waiting on the third pair to arrive so I can give them another shot. Even if the shoes don’t end up working out for running, GDEFY’s customer service has been their saving grace for me. These people know how to treat a customer, and I’ll be back for other types of shoes when I need them.
