PureDrift vs Virrata
My NB730s started feeling too stiff and unforgiving on the track, so I
want something more "loving", but still light.
The PureDrift seem like a potential solution (with the insoles, I Pete's
comment about it being stiff without it). Light and flexible. But is it
too soft for speed? Protective enough for hard, track running?
The Virrata seems like another solution. I have no problems with zero or
low drop. Also light and somewhat flexible, though feels higher off
ground. I don't love the forefoot area of the Virrata as much as the
PureDrifts, but I don't think the Virrata would actually cause problems
as it is smooth and soft.
I'd use it for track sessions and for 10K races as part of triathlons.
I COULD buy both, but I'd rather start with one. Will the PureDrifts be
enough protection and "energetic" enough for track sessions. Will the
Virratas be a bit much, and not racey?
