  • I agree with your "planks" comment about the 1.0/1.5.  The 2.0 is indeed more flexible, but comparing them is difficult because apart from the Instinct name they're completely different.  I can't say this for sure because I've never tried the Torin,…
  • Robert, my recommendation was based on the original post.  Had Dani posted a different set of requirements, I would have recommended a different shoe (assuming I was familiar with one I thought would fit his/her needs).  The Kigers are indeed a nice…
  • I don't think you need to look much farther than the 1010v2 and the Kiger.  The fact that the trail is "non-rocky" leads me to recommend the Kiger, but if you want a rock plate, the 1010v2 is a great choice.
  • Nike Terra Kiger
  • Sorry - I've never tried Kinvaras.  Many others on this forum have, though, so hopefully one of them can chime in and compare them to Newtons for you. Best of luck with both the shoes and your training!
  • BTW, I would be shocked if GoRuns fit the bill for you.  From a cushioning standpoint, they're much more akin to the Bare Access than Newtons. Although I've always been curious about Fastwitches, I've never tried them.  One bit of Saucony experience…
  • Al, coincidentally, I've worn some of the same shoes as you and have had some of the same experiences.  For example, I've worn and liked both the Motions and Energys quite a bit, although I didn't have the injury problems you've had.  I also have Ba…
  • As a very dedicated Cursoris wearer, I will naturally stock up on them, but I would also be interested in everyone's recommended alternatives.  It and the Virrata are the only shoes I've found that strike the right balance for me between cushioning …
  • @Stephane, I suspect the difference in our perspectives on the Cursoris is a function of the shoes in your rotation compared to mine.  I log all my miles in zero drop shoes with some cushioning.  Thus, the Vapor Glove and Trail Glove are more minima…
  • One more thought, Bryan: The Cursoris is a much more cushioned shoe than the BA2.  If that's what you want, they're terrific.  If not, the Levitas will be a better option.  As you note, the stack heights of the Levitas and BA2 (which I also have) ar…
  • I've said this before on this forum (a few months before Pete's review, BTW): The Cursoris is by far my favorite shoe - great flexibility, cushioning and fit.  However, the outsole on the lateral side of the forefoot wears very quickly.  I'm hard on…
  • It sounds like you've already eliminated the Cursoris, but FWIW, I've had a pair for a few weeks and am a huge fan.  Although I share your concern about the lack of the more durable black rubber on the lateral side of the forefoot outsole, I like th…
