Asics Tartherzeal 3 Review: A Grippy Flat Built For Speed

Asics Tartherzeal 3

A few weeks ago I reviewed the Asics Gel Lyteracer RS 4. The Lyteracer is a Japanese racing flat that was brought to the US by Running Warehouse, and I was quite impressed by the shoe. It offered a forgiving heel, a no frills yet durable upper, and was light and responsive enough to use […]

Nike Zoom Streak LT 2 Racing Flat Review

Nike Zoom Streak LT2

I’ve had the Nike Zoom Streak LT2s for over a year, but for some reason never got around writing a review until now. I was compelled to do so by the fact that the shoe is being updated, and the new version will be out in January of next year (see a preview here). Given […]

Shoe Previews: Asics Hyperspeed 7 and Asics DS Racer 11

Asics Hyperspeed 7

I was just poking around on the Running Warehouse YouTube page and came across video previews for the Asics Hyperspeed 7 and Asics DS Racer 11. The previous versions of these shoes are personal favorites – affordable, lightweight, and well cushioned for racers. Both updates look fantastic!

New Shoe Roundup: Road Racing Shoes Coming in 2016

New upper that stays seamless and should be just as light and comfy as v3.

Back in early August I had the fantastic opportunity to go to the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City for the first time and check out the new shoes that are coming out late winter/early spring. Below are the road racing shoes I had the opportunity to see at the show. Of note, Outdoor […]

Asics Lyteracer RS 4 Japanese Racing Shoe Review


If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you’re probably familiar with my preference for running in marathon racing flats. Shoes like the New Balance 1400, Asics Hyperspeed, and adidas Adios Boost are among my personal favorites, and are among the shoes I would choose from if I had to have one all-purpose shoe for […]

New Balance 1400 v3 Review: Great Update to a Great Shoe


Sometimes a small update is all that is needed to make a near-perfect running shoe better. Such is the case with the New Balance 1400 v3. Version 2 of the 1400 was one of my all-time favorite shoes. It was lightweight, simple in construction, and had my desired ride combo of a soft heel and […]

Asics DS Racer 10 Review: A Versatile Racing Flat


One of my favorite shoes last year was the Asics Hyper Speed 6. It was one of those shoes that matched my personal preferences almost perfectly: lightweight, softish heel, responsive forefoot, simple construction. Just a great, all-around shoe. Based on my experience with the Hyper Speed, I decided to pick up a pair of the […]

New Balance 1500 Running Shoe Review


The New Balance 1500 is a shoe that has kind of flown under the radar since its release. I’ve not heard a lot of chatter about it, but those I know who have tried it have generally had good things to say. Given my affinity for low-profile racing shoes, I decided to buy a pair […]

Skechers GoMeb Speed 3 Review


Among the Skechers Performance lineup of shoes, my favorites have been the GoRun and GoBionic models (unfortunately the latter is being discontinued). I ran in the GoRun Speed 1 and 2, but the shoe was not a great match for me. A little too narrow, a little to firm under the heel for long distances, […]

Skechers GoMeb Speed 2 Review: A Solid Distance Racing Flat

Skechers GoMeb Speed Sole

By David Henry Skechers got a big boost when Meb Keflezighi won the Boston marathon earlier this year. For a brand that has been historically known more for casual shoes and kids shoes, having an elite American marathoner win Boston in their footwear was evidence that the Skechers Performance Division is making legitimate running shoes. They’ve since […]
