  • Puma Ignite Review
    Puma Running Ignite Review Thomas: Puma isn’t afraid to try new things. Sometimes it works like the FAAS, and sometimes it doesn’t (cough) Mobium.  At least the Mobium did not work great for me. When the Puma Ignite showed up I was intrigued. It arrived in a sweet marketing package... read more

  • New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Review
    New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Review I was not a fan of the first Fresh Foam. The marketing of the shoe did not match the reality of running in it. The shoe is a firm shoe without flexibility, and has a constricting upper. When designing the next round of Fresh... read more

  • Are You More or Less Prone to Injuries with Maximalist Shoes?
    “Out with the old, in with the new!” That is what the New York Times declared a few weeks ago with regards to running shoes.

  • Is Your Stride Width to Blame for Your Injuries?
    By now, you’ve probably heard of the importance of stride frequency when it comes to injury prevention.
