  • I second Pete on the Asics Gel Lyte33 v3. Roominess (is that a word?) is comparable to Merrell Road Glove. Probably roomier.
  • Jk- I am not sure about Saloman, but I think the N2 might be more cushion than what you have been running in. Inov8 is pretty comparable to what you have been running in. I have tried on and ran a little in Inov8 terrafly 303, Saucony Peregrine 3 &…
  • I concur with Bryan. Out of curiosity, do you rotate with the Merrells? I tried the N1, and it did not work for me at all. On my third run for 5 miles I came back with foot, knee, and hip pain. I put on my other shoes in my rotation and no pain. Th…
  • Pearl Izumi EM Road N1. I never had a shoe that I hated more and more every time I run in them. Newton Energy is hit or miss.
  • Another shoe to look at is Innov8 303 terrafly. 6mm drop, running warehouse measures 18 mm heel, 12 mm forefoot. I have  a 3E foot, and that shoe seemed to fit well. I planned on getting it when I consider trail shoes. New balance does alright with …
  • TRD- Thanks for the link! Will be interested to see what happens this year in running.
  • Looking forward to what Nate says. Was just on RunningWarehouse and noticed the Altra Repetition. Is this the stability version of Olympus/Paradigm? Torin?
  • Bummed. The One 2 looks like if Skora and Nike free were to have a thicker love child. I apologize for my skepticism, but it seems there are too many shoes with similar characteristics (cushion, stack height, etc).
  • I thought I would ask the question the difference between certain Altras as well. From what I understand, there will be an Instinct 1.5, an Instinct 2 which is close to the Torin, the Torin 1.5, the max cushion Olympus, and now the max cushion Altra…
  • I wanted to try Hoka this year, but my birthday is coming up in 2 weeks. Although they come out in the fall, I might have to wait and see.  7.9 oz is very intriguing.
  • Durability update: I have only 180 miles (I rotate with NB 890v2). There is a some wear on the tread of the shoe (edge of fifth square)  by the second set of drainage holes in the forefoot. I'm about 159 lbs and 5'6" if tha…
  • Bryan- I tried the Skora Base in the Spring/Summer and had the same issues with sizing. Normally wear a size 9, but my foot moved all over in the shoe. Did you run with or without the insole?
  • That's terrible! I've now got about 100 miles on The One, so I thought I would comment on some things. The cushioning is definitely enough for my personal taste.  I've ran in Altra Samson, the Instinct, and I've tried on merrell BA2. I would say th…
