Skechers GoMeb Speed 2 Review: A Solid Distance Racing Flat

Skechers GoMeb Speed 2

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 […]

New Balance Fresh Foam 980 Review: Firm, Responsive, and A Bit Pointy

New-Balance-Fresh-Foam-980-heel.jpg

The New Balance Fresh Foam 980 seems to be a shoe experiencing a slight identity crisis – it doesn’t really know what it wants to be. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as I like shoes that are innovative and buck the traditional mold for a running shoe, but I think the marketing of this […]

Asics-Gel-Lyte33.jpg

I reviewed version 2 of the Asics Gel Lyte33 last year and liked it a lot. It had a roomy fit, softish sole, moderate drop (6mm) and it worked really well for easy and long runs. As such, when offered a chance to try version 3 of the Gel Lyte33 I was happy to do […]

Asics Gel Hyper Speed 6 Racing Shoe Review: Lightweight, Flexible, Roomy, and Low Priced!

Asics-Gel-Hyperspeed-6.jpg

Two of my favorite shoes last year were the New Balance 1400v2 and the adidas Adios Boost. I would classify both of those shoes as distance racers – shoes that would be well suited for racing a half marathon, and maybe even a full marathon. They were a bit more cushioned than I typically like […]

Altra-Lone-Peak-2.0-top.jpg

Every once in awhile I like to scan through the brand pages on Running Warehouse to look for pre-order shoes. It’s a good way to keep tabs on new stuff coming out in the coming months. In my most recent perusal, I came across a few models that might be of interest to Runblogger readers. […]

Nike Zoom Terra Kiger Trail Shoe Review

Nike-Terra-Kiger.jpg

By David Henry For a brand without a strong history in the trail market, Nike has created quite the buzz with their latest offerings: the Nike Zoom Terra Kiger and Nike Zoom Wildhorse. Both shoes have a lot of features that will appeal to a wide range of runners, and Nike has even gone so […]
