Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 2: A Fantastic Update

Nike Terra Kiger Sole

It hasn’t been that long since I first wrote about the original Nike Zoom Terra Kiger in my June review.  I was pleasantly surprised by the shoe and found it very nice for smoother trails, and even mixed runs as the shoe ran quite well on pavement. Only a short while after my review I […]

Can Rocker Soled Shoes Benefit Runners With Forefoot Pain?

Unmodified Shoe (top) and Rocker-Sole Shoe (bottom). via Gait & Posture

A little over a year ago I wrote a few posts (here and here) detailing how my wife managed to overcome pain caused by a neuroma in her right foot by running in Hoka shoes. The Hokas seemed to do the trick pretty quickly, and I’ve since heard anecdotes from others who seem to have […]

On The Cloud Running Shoe Review

ON The Cloud Heel

I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting to like these shoes. My previous experience with an ON shoe was the original Cloudracer, and my impression was that to take advantage of the cushioning provided by podded sole design you needed to land with a pronounced heel strike. Otherwise the shoes felt very firm (not […]

Skora Fit Review: The Shoe I Wanted To Love

Three Shoe Compare

by Bryan Wyatt This is my first post on Runblogger, so before I get to my review, I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself. Introduction I’ve been running more or less since 1995, when I decided to run Cross Country in High School.  I picked up Track almost as an afterthought.  By the time […]

Saucony Ride 7 Running Shoe Review

Saucony Ride 7

By Tyler Mathews One of the first reviews that I wrote here on Runblogger was for the Saucony Ride 6. I liked that shoe because it gave me a tool to use in training that I didn’t have to think much about. It was basic in almost every way – basic cushion, basic ride, basic […]

Skechers GoRun 4 Review: A Great Update

Skechers GoRun 4

I first ran in a prototype of the Skechers GoRun 4 on a cold, slushy day earlier this year. I’d heard hints that the shoe was substantially changed from previous versions, but didn’t know much beyond that (I had heard that it was more Kinvara-like than previous versions, no complaints here with that comparison!). Upon […]

Newton Kismet Running Shoe Review

Newton Kismet on Foot

Newton made a bit of a splash this year with the release of a bunch of new shoe models built on their new 5-lug forefoot platform. If you’re not familiar with Newton’s lug system, it’s basically a set of raised, elongated lugs under the forefoot of the shoe that are intended to help cushion the […]

Brooks Ghost 7 Running Shoe Review

Brooks Ghost 7 heel

Lately I’ve been branching out a bit in my review shoe choices in order to get a better feel for the differences among the various types of shoes that exist in today’s footwear market. A few weeks ago I reviewed the Hoka Clifton (the Hoka Huaka worked out a bit better), a lightweight yet super-cushy shoe, […]

Hoka Huaka Running Shoe Review with Comparisons to the Hoka Clifton

Hoka Huaka

A few weeks ago I reviewed the Hoka Clifton. It was my first experience in a Hoka shoe, and my reaction was mixed. I was impressed by fit and comfort – it was the first Hoka I’ve tried on that seemed to be a good match for my foot shape. However, the ride was a […]
