  • Newtons, yeah....   The lugs hit my left foot all wrong.  It didn't give me a neuroma, but it did give me a stress fracture.  (My podiatrist said Newtons are either very right for you or, for a lucky few, incredibly wrong.) And, yeah, Altras are my …
  • Probably too much too soon.  How do I know?  Ask my podiatrist. I got a pair of Gravitys, was enamored with them right away, and started to run in them all the time.  I was 55-60 mpw in those days.  Felt great on one foot; a little "off" on the othe…

  • You only need another shoe when you feel like you need another shoe.  I almost always need another shoe ;) What do you not like about your current shoes?  What aren't they doing well enough?  For something in a lower drop than what you have, but not…
