Nike Zoom Streak LT2
I've had the Nike Zoom Streak LT2s for over a year, but for some reason never got around writing a review until now. I was compelled to do so by the fact that the shoe is being updated, and the new version will be out in January of next year (see a preview here). Given that the update is coming, the LT2 can be found for quite a bargain right now, and it might be a shoe to snap up before they are gone. I'm going to keep this short since the shoe will be replaced soon. In a nutshell, the Zoom Streak LT2 is an ultralight (5.5 oz), 4mm drop (22mm heel, 18mm forefoot) facing flat. It's stands out to me for several reasons: 1. It's a Nike flat that actually fits me. Historically I've had very little luck with Nike flats since most fit very narrow. The Streak LT2 is more >>

I was just poking around on the Running Warehouse YouTube page and came across video previews for the Asics Hyperspeed 7 and Asics DS Racer 11. The previous versions of these shoes are personal favorites – affordable, lightweight, and well cushioned for racers. Both updates look fantastic!

Nuero upper. Notice material that attaches to laces. It actually wraps all the way under the foot.
Back in early August I had the fantastic opportunity to go to the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City for the first time and check out the new shoes that are coming out late winter/early spring. Below are the road racing shoes I had the opportunity to see at the show. Of note, Outdoor Retailer tends to attract more trail oriented shoe brands and not all companies that make road shoes were present. Notably, Nike, adidas, ASICS, and Mizuno were not present so I don't have any info on their 2016 releases. Brooks Brooks Nuero upper. Notice material that attaches to laces. It actually wraps all the way under the foot. Brooks Nuero – weight: 9.4 oz (men); 7.9 oz (women), drop: 6mm, available 03/01/16, price: $130 The Brooks Nuero was one of the most innovative road shoes I saw at the show. Without running in them I can't say more >>

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about how I had no plans to race this Fall. Life has gotten incredibly busy with my return to school (though I'm having a blast!), and it seems like most of my time these days is spent either in a classroom or on a soccer field (two of my kids are playing right now…lots of chauffeur duty!). Fitting in running has been a challenge, though it remains a priority to get out there 4-5 times per week. Anyway, my wife ran Reach the Beach last weekend with a team of teachers and parents from my kid's school. She's not typically a competitive runner, but she managed 17 miles during the relay, and when she got home she said a group of them were planning to run a 10 mile race in my home town in October. She was looking forward to going more >>

Asics Gel Lyteracer RS 4
If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you're probably familiar with my preference for running in marathon racing flats. Shoes like the New Balance 1400, Asics Hyperspeed, and adidas Adios Boost are among my personal favorites, and are among the shoes I would choose from if I had to have one all-purpose shoe for all of my running. Over the years, I've heard that this class of shoe is very popular in Japan (for example, see here), and that there are a number of models available in that market that are not available here in the US. Several weeks ago Running Warehouse started stocking several Asics flats from Japan, and they sent me two pairs to try out for review (Disclosure: these shoes were provided free of charge by Running Warehouse for review purposes). The models I received were the Lyteracer RS 4 and the Tartherzeal 3 – I've run more >>

The Saucony Nomad TR caught my eye last winter when I saw some early pictures previewing the shoe. Mostly, I was pretty interested to see if it had a wide toebox similar to Altra or Topo shoes. After getting a pair in myself a couple months ago and getting some miles on them, I can say it is a welcome addition to Saucony's traditionally more pointy-shaped trail lineup. Whether you like its speckled, neon, retro styling or not is up to you, but I'll tell you how it runs below. Specs Price: $110 MSRP Stack Height: 24mm heel, 20 mm forefoot Weight: 10.4 oz (294 g), men's size 9 and 8.7 oz (246 g) women's size 8 Stats via Running Warehouse Insole shows the wide, oblique-shaped last on the shoe – it is by far the roomiest Saucony I've tried. Upper and Fit The fit of the Nomad TR is the big story for more >>

  1. Need trail shoe advice…how is the Saucony Nomad TR? I currently run in the Kinvara.

  2. Hi! Landed on one of ur 2012 posts about your wife asking about the Altra Zero Drop Women’s Intuition 1.5 tonight as I was looking for just that shoe. My heart sunk cause it’s 3years later…. But here goes.. So I fell in love with them back then too, but they don’t make ’em anymore, they were the only shoe I ran injury free in – ever – and I’ve been ALL over the internet trying to dig up the last (or 5!) pair I possibly could. 1) any idea if they exist in cyberspace anywhere?? And 2) if not, have u discovered a TRUE equivalent? Anything Altra Zero Drop made after the 1.5’s are just SO different and uncomfortable. I tried pursuing this with them but never got passed an indifferent sales rep who said she’d send my inquiries up the ladder… Really don’t think she did. So sad… If u know anything at all about this shoe I am ALL ears. And grateful!

    • Not aware of any still in existence online. You might take a look at the Altra 3-Sum, probably the closest thing to the old 1.5 that they currently make. You might also take a look at some of the Topo shoes, a few might fit the bill.

  3. I am desperate for help finding anyone who can help me find he proper shoes for my gait ~ which is very “unique”. Despite professional training for help with my mechanics I still run like a duck. Years of this has messed up my back. I’ve been analyzed and told I am an overpronator .Any suggestions on shoes I might consider? I love the HOKA’s (Clifton) but think they might be wrong choice.
