For people who have put some miles on the Speed Elite: Is it the same outsole (with same durability issues) as Razor 3? I love the Razors except for the razor-thin outsole.
I know they're meant mostly for races, thin outsole keeps the weight down, yada, yada, yada. I just hate this trend of expensive shoes designed for less than 100-200 miles. So you wear them for some test long runs and one or two races, and goodbye?
My inclination is that the durability will be worse than on the Razor 3. Derek (in the review below) was already noticing some wear on his prematurely. I would say my wear was expected (some shaving of the midsole where the rubber isn't) but I also did about half of my miles on a treadmill.https://www.roadtrailrun.com/2020/02/skechers-performance-speed-elite-multi.html
