Great shoe; great value
SL20 is a fast shoe. My favorite youtuber Kofuzi highly recommended it. So I bought a pair to join the club. (Yeah! Cheers! Word of the day!) Lightstrike midsole is Adidas newest offering. Compared to highly cushioned shoes, the shoe is on the stiff side. No problem for me though. I run a lot on Miz...

I’m not that fond of the Pegasus 38. Any similar experiences?
I find them pretty meh, but no issues with them. A bit on the clunky / spongy side. I much prefer running in my SL20. Just picked up some Reebok Floatride Energy 4 and they seem to suit me better for an everyday shoe.
Just came today - Adidas SL20.2
Feels like a pretty different shoe to the SL20 version 1, bit wider, softer and foot feels more relaxed in the shoe. Only done a few miles so going to test for a week for my overall opinion!
The Adidas SL20 Delivers Speed on a Budget
That’s the case here with the SL20, too, which shares the last that other Adizero shoes are built around.

Shoes for 1000 miles (1600km) of 5k training.
I've put 800km on my Adidas SL20's and they're still going strong. They have that firm ride that you're looking for and they're very light, which is an added bonus. They're also very affordable.
Looking to geek out on running shoes..but what to get??
I would look at the Adidas Boston, SL20 or Adios, Skechers Razor 3, Brooks Hyperion Tempo, Saucony Endorphin Speed or Reebok Run Fast 2. I think the Speed is the pick here but some of the others can be had dirt cheap at the moment. Keep in mind that light shoes aren't necessarily fast—you want something with some pop in the midsole.
