Saucony Virrata Zero Drop Running Shoe Review

Several weeks ago I travelled a bit over an hour south from my home in New Hampshire to visit Saucony headquarters in Lexington, Massachusetts. The purpose of my visit was twofold.

Brooks PureDrift Running Shoe Review

I’ll start this review by saying that I am loving the Brooks PureDrift, but with a big caveat. That caveat is that I didn’t love the shoe out of the box, and I needed to make a modification for the shoe to work for me. So let’s start with my problem. The Brooks PureDrift is […]

Inov-8 Trailroc 235 Trail Running Shoe Review

When I think of Inov-8, I think of shoes designed for a purpose, and most often that purpose is to run on rugged trails or fells. Their shoes are typically fairly simple in design, but are very effective at doing their job. Unfortunately, you also often pay a premium for their product. I’ve run in […]

Altra Torin: Guest Review by John Shepard

John Shepard (@runsheprun on Twitter) and I are kindred spirits in a way. We both are fathers of three kids (he writes about his on the Suburban Father Alliance blog), we both fell in love with running and footwear, and shoes have become a second career of sorts for both of us. For me it […]

Altra Instinct 1.5 Zero Drop Running Shoe Review

A few weeks ago my wife and I were in our local food co-op and she turned to me and pointed at a woman in front of us in line. In a low voice she whispered “What are those shoes she’s wearing?” Now, you need to know that in our marriage I’m the shoe junkie, […]

Mizuno EVO Cursoris Zero Drop Shoe Photos

A few days ago I posted a preview video of Mizuno’s forthcoming EVO Cursoris zero drop running shoe. In my brief commentary on the video I wondered whether there was any rubber under the heel since it was hard to tell from the video. Seth Hasty from Mizuno was kind enough to send along a […]
