Hi Sam,
It sounds like Nike has a contender. I'm really looking forward to the full review of this Endorphin Pro.

Looking forward to a review.
I am wondering how the stability of these would be for a heel striker. Great to compare them with Asics glideride,Nimbus lite, Skechers gorun ride 8, Sauncony triumph 17, NB propel and the new saucony line Endorphin.

Hi Anonymous,
Review soon. I am a heel striker and they are plenty stable. Maybe not as stable as some for a "heavier" pronator.Generally more stable at forefoot than Nimbus Lite a bit less at the heel. As far as others you mention more stable than Propel maybe not quite as stable as others but not by much,
