  • Finally got to try these after coming into a pair inadvertently, and based on a couple of short runs in them, my impressions are very positive and the fears that I had proved to be premature and unfounded. The upper is lightweight and very flexibl…
  • I was reading about how the Kinvara 4 would offer improved cushioning. I suspected that this was what they meant. If they aren't as firm as the Kinvara 3, it looks like I'll be waiting for the Kinvara 5. At least roomier forefoot is a step in the …
  • Read Jay Dicharry's book "Anatomy for Runners". Good exercises in there. Some good exercises here too: http://www.runnersworld.com/injury-treatment/do-weak-hips-cause-pronation?page=single
  • Dan, thanks for the recommendation of the 3090. I've tried that shoe and the heel area does not fit properly for me. There's a glowing customer review of the shoe on the New Balance site now. Apparently, the concerns about the shoe's durability hav…
  • Thanks for the tip, Dan! Will keep an eye out for these this summer.
  • I've seen some positive comments about this new model, but I have some personal reservations about the shift of many of New Balance's models to the more extreme "minimal" end of the spectrum. The HI-REZ looks very comfy, but scarily minimal. The upp…
  • The title of the article is terrible, but the exercises at the end of it have been helpful. http://www.runnersworld.com/injury-treatment/do-weak-hips-cause-pronation?page=single Another article here (also from Running Times magazine) http://www.runn…

  • Same here, Steve. My running and just everyday walking around have improved in a huge way with more glute activation. It helped me to resolved problems that go back years.

  • Skl, is it possible that you're overloading your quads by being quad-dominant? Are your quads compensating for not using your hips, glutes and back of the legs enough? You should be "pulling" with your butt, a muscle that's even thicker, larger and…

  • I finally tried a pair of the MR10v2 in a 10D and here are my impressions of the shoe from the few minutes I got to spend with them. The shoe seems to run long and the last is very close to that of the MR10v1. The upper is very thin and flexible. I…
  • I'll give my impressions of the v2 here after I've had the chance to try them out.
  • moglesby, have you tried the original MR10s? I've seen the v2s at my local store (through the glass because it was closed at the time) and I plan to try them in the next few days. Actually, I've noticed a raised arch bump in the first version of th…
  • Looking forward to trying these. A short run in my MR00 this morning reminded me of how great that shoe feels. It's not a bouncy shoe but it's not a stiff, slappy one either. It's the shoe for me that disappears on my feet in a way that even the lig…
  • That is a good question. In the Runner's World Spring Shoe Guide, the measurements seem more accurate. The heel height:forefoot height ratios for the MR10v2 and Virrata are 16.2mm/11.3mm and 24.6mm/20.6mm respectively. Those figures look more realis…
  • New video reviews of shoes appearing in the RW Spring Shoe Guide (including the best available look at the MR10v2 and lots of other new models in the low-drop category) can be found here: http://www.runnersworld.com/shoes-gear-video
  • No problem, Dan. Not having tried the shoe personally, I suspect that they will fit similarly to the original Minimus Road, but that's just a guess. With the radical redesign, who knows? The MR00 has a very soft upper but still managed to be somewha…
  • I have also read the review in the March issue of RW and the impression I get is that if you were able to wear the MR10, the v2 should not cause any problems. The comment about the fit was that runners with a wide forefoot may find their out toes cr…
  • More info can be found here http://blog.adventuremegastore.com.au/barefoot-running-footwear/1506/ Highlights include: Some new colorways that are nicer than those previously unveiled. Confirmation that they are built on the same last as the previo…
  • Mea culpa. Replace "Vibram sole" with "midsole" in my earlier post. It shouldn't be a huge issue for me in any case because I kind of liked how the MR00 "disappeared" on my feet in a way that even the Mizuno Wave Universe doesn't, for example. The …
  • Thanks, Pete. It's nice to know that I'm not alone in my appreciation for these shoes. I came to the MR10s after running for about a year in FiveFingers and other zero drop shoes and I was ready for a little "more shoe". The cushioning is definite…
