  • Hadn't heard about these, they might just do the job. Thanks!
  • Thank you so much for this, it really helped. What I find problematic in the Kinvara is the width of the sole, the 'platform' my foot rests on. And if .2 mm is all the difference there is, they will not do the job for me. A million thanks for saving…
  • @Heather: Quite brilliant, thx!
  • 2E it was. Slightly wider would most likely make it for me. Again, I can't seem to find it in Europe, but this might actually be worth a shot anyway. To me, the fit in size US 10 is perfect in every aspect apart from width; US 10,5 is ok in width (s…
  • I just noticed that there actually is a wide version of Kinvara available. Does anyone know how much wider it is? This sounds like a great option to me...
  • @Fatboy: Sound like a luxury spot to be in :) If they're equally good when training, why not just pick a pair and, if possible, have an assistant standing 20k or so into the race. If you feel like you need it, you change to the other pair. #hijackac…
  • Hi again, Earlier today I was at my local store and had the pleasure to run on a treadmill and get my gait analyzed. I pronate heavily on my right foot, and not at all on my left foot. (Light heel strike.) Which made picking a shoe difficult ;) Even…
  • @moglesby: Well, let's hope they can find a European distributor...
  • Runningwarehouse do international deliveries, but I would have to stand the risk of both transport costs (to swe and back again) in case of returning the shoes. If they'd had the older Altra (which is on sale) in my size I would have gambled, $55 + …
  • OT: Price differences between US and Sweden are quite striking. A pair of Saucony Kinvara (just to take a popular shoe) at my local store cost SEK1400 = $215... 
  • Dear all contributors, thanks for all the input. What I'll do next is head down to the local shop and see if any models mentioned above are available (they'll probably have Mizuno and Brooks in store, but I'm less optimistic about zero drop models).…
  • Wow, thanks for your effort! Both the Mizunos and New Balance look really interesting, they seem a bit less narrow than Saucony's shoes. (I've tried the Virrata and the Kinvara and they are really nice shoes, but my feet are too much Donald Duck to …
  • Locally it'll be the major brands, possibly also some more "outdoor"-style stuff, like TNF and Salomon. In terms of models, it's also quite limited. (Sounds like I live in the bush somewhere...) I've only found Saucony Hattori in the local shops as …
  • The major brands (Nike, Saucony, Adidas...), and basically anything on wiggle.co.uk (they have a very generous return policy ;).
  • Not totally, but as I have not had any problems with sore calves when I've tried running in zero drop (and my other exercise activities involve loooots of stretching), I feel it would not help my long term transition to barefoot running in shoes wit…
  • Thanks for this; they are however hard to find in Sweden so I wouldn't be able to try them. An order would be a bit of a gamble. According to the sizing assistant at runningwarehouse.com a Merrell Vapor size 9 equals an Altra Instinct 10,5 or Altra …
