Best pair of shoes in History

I purchased this product for:myself
I purchased this product:less than a month ago
The athletic skill level of the person using this product is:recreational
This product is primarily used/worn for:training/going to the gym
These shoes fit as tight as you want to tie. I do sprints in theses, and with the vent holes in under my toes, I feel a cool rush with every stride. I love the blue/green color combo. Goes well with most of my gym outfit. The heel cup is supportive, and the duomax medial support is a miracle. I have low arches, so the duomax is fabulous. Most light weight flats cater to efficient runners, so the shoe usually does not support the medial, but the Gel-DS racer is an exception.
Improvements:
I would love to see rubber on the forefoot, so I can have proper traction doing sprints indoors, in the basketball court over the winter.
Also, can I have more midsole material in the forefoot, while keeping the low profile rear cushion?
Pros: lightweight, breathable
