Mizuno Cursoris Zero Drop Running Shoe Review: One of My Top Shoes of the Year So Far

I’m woefully behind on reviewing shoes in my ever-growing collection, so my goal over the next few weeks is to knock out as many as I can for shoes I’ve run in so far this year. I figured I’d start with a personal favorite – the Mizuno Cursoris. Earlier this year Mizuno released two zero-drop […]

Under Armour Speedform Running Shoe Review

I was at a store called Reny’s in Bridgton, Maine last week when an older woman, probably in her 80’s, walked up to me with a big smile on her face and her finger aimed at my shoes. “You’re making a statement in those!” she said, chuckling as she proceeded on past me down the […]

Dirty Runner: La Sportiva Helios Trail Shoe Review

I must confess that I have never run in La Sportiva shoes before this pair of Helios arrived at my door. Although the Vertical K interested me, I read that the toe-box was quite narrow. Since I have always enjoyed shoes with large toe-boxes, I just never gave them a chance. When the Helios was […]

Garmin Forerunner 10 (FR10) Review: Great Performance in a Small, Low-Priced Package

Garmin Forerunner 10

Update 7/8/2014  –I have now posted a review of the Garmin Forerunner FR15. The FR15 is basically an update to the FR10 that adds step counting, heart rate monitor sync, and longer battery life. One of the first reviews I wrote here on Runblogger was of the Garmin Forerunner 205 GPS watch. That was way back in April of 2009! […]

Karhu Flow3 Trainer Running Shoe Review

This is a guest review by Brad Patterson. Brad is an electrical engineer by trade, and lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan. As you will see, his photography skills are far superior to my own! – Pete, Runblogger.com Before I started running back in January of 2011, I had never even heard of Karhu. As my […]

Mini-Review Roundup: RunGuard Anti-Chafe, Energy Bits, Sport Science Shirt, Zensah Reflect Sleeves, VFuel Gel, PocketFuel

There are some running products that warrant a long review (e.g., shoes, electronics), and there are others that can be adequately critiqued in just a few paragraphs (most apparel, nutrition products, etc.). Over the past several months Nate and I have received a number of products to try out that fit into the latter category. […]

Nike Free 3.0 v5 Review: Redemption For One Of My Favorite Shoe Lineages!

Update 3/14/2014: Nike has just announced the release of the Nike Free 3.0 v6. For details, visit this post. After a phenomenal debut, the Nike Free 3.0 line entered a steady downward spiral, culminating in one of the worst shoes I have worn since I started reviewing running shoes back in 2009. The Free 3.0 […]

Skechers GoBionic Trail: Photos and Review Link

Over the past few years I’ve had the opportunity to do pre-release product testing and development work with the performance footwear team at Skechers. It’s been an incredibly fun process, and getting to see suggestions that you make find their way into a shoe released on the market is quite a kick! I’ve been given […]

Dirty Runner: Montrail FluidFlex Trail Shoe Review

If you’ve read any of my past reviews you know that I have a certain ideal shoe that I’m searching for.  My perfect trail shoe would be one with a minimal upper that fits like a glove over the forefoot, a wide toe box, excellent drainage, great grip, soft ride, 0-4mm heel/forefoot differential, and enough […]
