New Balance RX505

I am testing new running shoes right now - something completely different from whatever I ever tried before - New Balance RX505.

RX505 is a minimalist shoe - low on cushioning, super light weight, intended and positioned for sprinting. I find these shoes perfect for business trips and family vacations. When I need to fly somewhere and the space is limited, I need something very light and space-saving, especially if it is all about just a couple of workouts. And this is when RX505 comes handy. The only problem with it - besides obvious issues with lack of cushioning on longer runs - is that my regular shoes feel heavy after a run in RX505.
