  • Newtons are good shoes. I have been using them on-and-off for about five years. I ran in them this morning. You don't have to do a really high recovery, but you do have to learn to get your feet a little higher than *quite low* or you will be drag…
  • On the battery issue, standard lead-acid batteries won't produce enough power when the temp is below freezing.  To reliably use battery-powered things in cold weather, you should use lithium batteries.  See: http://www.amazon.com/Energizer-L92BP-En…
  • Hi Pete.  Thanks for the offer, but I go two sizes bigger than your size 10.  I tell myself that the added length gives me better stability and a stronger push.  You are not the only one who has received 10 after ordering one pair.  This seems to …
  • I wouldn't call Cursoris squishy. My model for squishy is Brooks PureConnect 2. I would describe Cursoris as moderate-soft. Brooks PureDrift (with a 0-drop insole) would be moderate-firm. I agree that Cursoris is comfortably wide and you should …
  • James, I really like my Cursoris.  So much that I bought a second pair while I am still running in the first.  I have over 100 miles on the Cursoris and see the same wear-pattern on the center pod in the mid forefoot as you see.  But that wear has s…
  • Bryan, if you have your shoes, do you agree with Shoddy that the shoes fit *true-to-size* ??  Do you think that the upper fabric will breathe ?? Also, I saw a reference to a 25% discount, but could not find the secret words.  Does anyone here know …
  • Snowman responds on RunnersWorld forum: Yea, I saw it, but I can't give any answer, it always say "Body is required"... And my name on the forum is Barefoot123
  • Lately, I've been having trouble with my gracilis on the inside of my thigh. I found this:
  • I didn't know IT band or trigger point.  So if you are like me, I will save you the trouble of doing a google search.  See: Roll out your IT band Quad trigger points
  • I agree with Stephane that durability looks terrible for Cursoris.  I just took my first run, 3 miles.  There is obvious wear in the middle forefoot, right where you would expect it, Bryan.  I am going to keep them just to see how long they last.  I…
  • Bryan, it looks like you supinate, just like I do.  I have ordered a pair of Cursoris.  They are scheduled to arrive later this afternoon.  If they feel good, I will accept the extra wear on the mid-foot.  I suggest you look at the outsole of the …
  • Bryan, how did you learn about this *variable drop* factoid ?????  Do you have a pair ?? Mike
  • I am a mid-foot striker.  I tried changing to fore-foot and strained my left Achilles tendon.  It took six weeks to recover.  I am back to mid-foot and staying there.  Mid-foot works fine with 0-drop and low-drop shoes. Running is supposed to be f…
  • Yes, Lambert, I found the Torin was sized differently from the Instinct.  I first got the Instinct in 11.5.  Very nice shoe.  Then ordered the Torin in 11.5,  too.  The toebox was much too tight for me in the Torin.  I didn't feel like sending it ba…
  • I know this will sound strange, but I took out the sockliner and saw that the front had a turned up lip. I think that the sockliner is too long.  The pressure from the front and the back starts the folding of the liner, I believe.  So I took a sciss…
  • I just got in from a run with PureDrift.  They are currently my favorite running shoe.  A great match for my mid-foot strike.  I have about 30 miles on them and am just starting to see light wear.  I am not concerned about replacing at 300 miles. …
  • The Torin has rigid material surrounding the toebox.  It is very different from the Instinct. 
  • Better late than never.  Right? Anyway, I have just recently started to compare the Instinct with the Torin.   Toebox.  The Instinct has a great toebox.  Wide, spacious.  I just spread out.  My Instincts are size 11.5.  So I bought a pair of 11.5 …
