Saucony Hattori LC Lace-Up Review – A Massively Improved Update to Saucony’s First Zero Drop Shoe

Last year Saucony released it’s first zero drop shoe: the Saucony Hattori (soon to be joined in this category by the Saucony Virrata). My review of the original Hattori was favorable, but there were two big issues that I had with the shoe. 1. It was ugly. The first time I put the Hattori on […]

If you’ve never crewed an Ultra, I highly recommend it – not only did I have a blast, but the experience of watching people attempt to run 100 miles is truly awe inspiring. Crewing a race […]

Sole Width Comparison Photos: Saucony Kinvara TR vs. Saucony Kinvara 3, Brooks Pure Grit, and Merrell Mix Master 2

Yesterday I posted a first run review of the Saucony Kinvara TR and noted that the fit seemed off – too narrow and tapered in the forefoot to the point where I had to swap out the insole for a very thin one to make it work. This morning I took out a few shoes […]

Mizuno Wave Ekiden Racing Shoe Coming to the US

For a long time, Mizuno has had only one shoe that really hits my sweet spot: the Mizuno Wave Universe. I’ve tried both the Ronin and Musha, and though they’re solid shoes, neither were a very good match for me. I’ve long thought that Mizuno had a big gap in it’s offerings between the Universe […]
