I need a support shoe and previously had the transcend for marathon distance and found them great. Wanted something similar but a little quicker/less cushion so went for the bedlam on sale at �99. It�s definitely faster and sleeker look long but be careful with sock choice. The knitted upper design rides high on the heel and a good ankle sock is required to avoid friction and injury which happened me on run 2. With good socks it�s a decent shoe for sure and Im still happy with my decision but I haven�t taken them beyond the 10K yet. Hope this helps.
