  • Sorry guys haven checked into the forum since the original posting.  you know I don't really think I ponder breathability much.  I've never said I sure love these shoes, but they could be more breathable.  Probably not the best to comment.  Though I…

  • I just posted on this topic.  both a PF and Kinvara 5 runner and I love the Altra One2

  • Tried the Gel Lyte33 2, almost bought them prior to the BM just to have the BM shoe.  Toe box is significantly more cramped than even the Pure Flow.  Also tried the Hoka One One on and it felt like I would be running on a mattress, not sure I wantto…

  • BryanEW710 You should see me on a 40 day or night run, it looks like I am wearing a heavy base layer for a day on the slopes.
  • Thank you all for your contributions. I did start with compression during the first few months of winter, in so cal we think its freezing if it get below 50... I think I will pass on them for the marathon as I do sense a sort of resistance when wo…
  • Thanks Mogelsby I wondered if maybe compression delays the onset of the typical muscle pain I feel on longer runs. Sounds like your experience is no
  • anyone have a link to these shoes, cant find them anywhere
  • On the other hand.  I run a lot on sidewalks and appreciate the extra cushioning on HM and longer distances, while still desiring a low drop/more minimal shoe.I tried the Kinvara3 and loved it but the smaller toe box left me with a dead toe nail and…
