First I would like to thank you for choosing me to test your products. I apologize for the delay in my response but I wanted to give my trial an adequate period of time before I gave you any feedback. I was skeptical at first, but after having run a marathon in your shoes - I have a good deal of confidence in UK Gear.

I have tried about every major brand of running shoe over the past ten years. I am 200 Lbs. and have a large and wide foot. Before, I was satisfied with my old pair of Asics but now that I have tried you PT-03 I am sure that I have a new running shoe. Specifically what I really liked about them was the cushioning, stability and fit. The shoes provides a stable foot bed and glide the foot into proper pronation. In these three areas I believe there is little - if any - room for improvement.

I like your shoe so much I have been squeezing into the 12.5 and also using the 13. I have given a pair to a friend of mine up in Los Angeles who will be writing to you shortly. I still have a size 12 and would like to trade it for another 13 if possible. If you are looking for more individuals to test your shoes let me know.

I would be happy to answer any other questions you have, or provide more feedback if you would like it.
