    Love me LP3.5's great shoes, wear them daily

    They're not great on longer runs/hikes though
    Although i've been wearing zero drop shoes pretty much exclusively for the last couple of years, my calve muscles don't half take a battering at anything over 14km

    Oddly it's the downhills that cause the most trouble

    Had it on last years Lakes hikes, had on all the runs i've done over 14km, had it on the Mount Olympus hike, had it on the Greek meet hike

    I've tried everything, stretching, compression socks, calf muscle exercises, Immodium, them muscle rolling things, nothing worked.
    I've come to the conclusion that zero drop shoes just aren't for my body type
    On the Olympus hike and one of my 17km runs it was that bad i could barely walk for 2 days after

    On the flat or even up hill i can walk all day without any problem, after a few hours of downhill running/hiking i start to suffer

    I've gone back to Hoka's again now they're making a wider fit version
    Only a 5mm drop, we'll see how my calf muscles are after the Lakes hike this year (too hot to run/hike here now)

    I've never had a problem with the 2 or 3 orders I've had over the years. I've not ordered for a while now though.
