  • How far away is your race? It took me about four months or so to completely get over sore calves when I run. I had never really run before and I started off with the Mizuno Ronin 2s, an 8mm drop racer. The Kinvaras made me much more sore in the calv…
  • I did my first half marathon recently in a pair of Nike Lunaracers, in great part because of the great cushioning. I had the Kinvara 1, Skecher GoBionics and GoRuns at the time and I feel like I made the right choice. For cushioning I rank it as bet…
  • I'm really lost as to why the GoRun 2s were narrowed down. They seem to hit the minimalist points pretty well and suddenly....they're narrow? They seemed much better than the GoRun 1s for me with the improved midsole feel and upper construction, but…
  • Sorry to hear that, Sentzation. I'm hoping these will actually work out as my long run trainers (for me long runs are 5-6 miles as I mostly compete at 5K distances). I've written up an early impression entry for my blog after 12 miles. I've gotten b…
  • I exchanged a pair of the Skechers GoRun Speeda for these, basically going th exact opposite way of the Speeds. Love them. One of my favorite shoes I've ever run in. Did a tempo run and a long run in them and I compare them favorably to the gorun 1…
  • Hi, Sentzation. When you say that the Virratas have more cushion but are firmer, what do you mean exactly? That they have a greater stack height but are firmer? I am considering exchanging my GoRun Speeds for one of these as a daily trainer and woul…
  • Yay, my friend bought me a pair for my birthday. I've put only two very short 1 mile runs in them, but I have an unboxing + preview video uploaded. It's very long winded, like my writing. Overall impression of the construction is positive, but after…
  • I actually get a blister on the ball of my left foot when I run without the sockliner in my GoBionics. I definitely feel a difference betwen running with and without the sockliner in regards to groundfeel, cushioning and being able to feel the indiv…
  • I swear this is one of the most anticipated reviews for me now that I got a chance to try them on. Spam link: http://newbierunnerblog.blogspot.com/2013/02/my-run-in-with-skechers-gorun-speed.html  I'm looking to replace my Lunaracer in mayb…
  • I find that the removable flat insole in my GoBionics tend to stick to the balls of my foot and heel when I go sockless. Then when I take the shoes off, the insole almost goes along with it and I have to put them back in. When running, the insoles s…
  • I actually found some being sold at the San Francisco Skechers store the other day. I tried them on and took some pictures and put up a mini preview on my blog. I loved them for the precious 10 minutes I had with them. I just could not afford anothe…
  • Hi beckip. Yeah, I don't think Mizuno was even really trying to fool anyone with the Ekiden. There's no false-colored foam that they're calling the Wave plate sandwiched between the black and white pieces of foam like I recall in the Universe when I…
  • I decided to just start up a blog and write up a preview for these shoes. I'm sure the Ekidens run small compared to my Ronin 2s of the same size, but maybe only a 1/4 size small now that I've stretched them up a little. I've put details and picture…
  • I decided to just buy a pair from road runner sports to try out as they have a 60-day return policy for VIPs if they didn't work out for me. Just wanted to drop in and let anyone looking to get a pair to know that they almost definitely run half a …
  • For the ronins I like the stiffness it keeps for the springy racer pop. But I do love that its surprisingly flexible due to those groove cuts mizuno puts in the sole. As for cushioning I personally feel like its on the softer side of firm. What I'm…
  • I've run in the lunaracer reissue for the past year. I sized up half a size due to the narrowness. When I tried the lunaracer 3 at the store the other day I was able to very comfortably fit in my normal size due to the new mesh upper. The fellow nex…
