    Smile Difference between "long and slow strides" and "long slow strides".

    As in "He walked with long and slow strides" and "He walked with long slow strides".
    It seems there's a difference in meaning between the two, but I can't quite get it, would really appreciate some help, thank you.

    Re: Difference between "long and slow strides" and "long slow strides".

    The difference is that the second version is more idiomatic than the first.
