    Great review! I’ve had a few friends that got Ariakes but never tried them myself. I just never felt they were worth the price Compared to basic cheap running shoes since I go through them so fast. How much of a difference do you feel it brings to your training compared to a basic new balance shoe?

      The sole is pretty sturdy, especially the front part. But the upper leather is prone to degradation if you push them hard. The flat configuration of the sole has better grip than New Balance and helps when you cat-leap or do long precision jumps. But the price is an issue here. If you can afford the investment, I say they’re worth a shot.

      Hi David,

      You are asking for a place to buy the K-swiss Ariake shoes. I don’t live in Mexico, but you can try going to http://www.k-swiss.com.mx/. They should be able to help you out.

    Just wondering, is there any chance they make this shoe for women at all and if so, where could I find them?

      Hi Leah,

      Unfortunately, there’s no version for women yet. You do have an alternative though. The Ultra-Natural Run II also from K-swiss. I heard a lot of women using them and loving it:
