Two shoes that were quality at a decent price, the DL 6000 featured straight combination lasted shape, a three density, compression molded EVA in contoured design, carbon rubber plugs embedded in “rebounding” compound for the outsole and a super clean look and feel. The 6000 had slightly more medial support (according to an old review from Runners World) and different outsole pattern than the DL5000 but thats the only differences. Take a trip back!
