Skechers GOrun Forza 2 Review

Skechers continues to go full steam ahead with their performance line. They are out to prove that they can go toe to toe with the other heavy hitters out there. The goRUN Forza 2 stays safe and does not change much with its second edition. There is a slight weight cut and improvement in the […]

Hoka One One Arahi Review

Arahi fits and rides very much like what I’ve experienced when running in the brand’s Clifton 2 and Challenger ATR 2. The midfoot is narrow yet the fit, otherwise, is roomy. That sounds like a contradiction, but if I snug up the laces, the shoes pinch laterally for my average-width forefoot, and this leaves vertical […]

Nike Zoom Structure 20 Review

Fall is the season when all the major stability shoes are released. For Nike, this means an update to the Zoom Odyssey and to the Zoom Structure. The LunarGlide was updated earlier during the year. The Structure is a well cushioned high mileage running shoe that offers moderate to high support for over-pronation. It retails […]

Brooks Ravenna 8 Review

This shoe reminds me the most of HOKA’s Clifton 2, but the cushion is a bit more firm, especially in the toe-off, and the Ravenna has a more secure midfoot fit -though not what I prefer in a tight lock-down. Essentially to me it feels like a cross between the ASICS Gel-Nimbus (14 is the […]

Saucony Guide 10 Review

Saucony introduced their popular EVERUN foam last year with the Guide 9. The new technology was well-received and the 9 was a success. So, what to do with the year after a major overhaul? Not much! Which is what Saucony has done with the Guide 10. Because why screw up a good thing, right? This […]

Brooks Transcend 4 Review

First off, I just love the name. I mean, who doesn’t need to rise above, overcome—Transcend—something in his/her life? And there are countless stories including my own, where running has helped us do just that. Now about this shoe, from the moment I put it on and throughout the subsequent runs, I felt like it […]

New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo Review

Talk to me too long and too in depth about running shoes and you’ll soon find out that I loved running in Minimalist shoes (anyone still do that?) until finding out that I have loose ligaments in my feet which caused pain at the head of my left 3rd metatarsal. And so I was forced […]

Asics Gel-DS Trainer 22 Review

The DS trainer returns again as the sleeper hit of ASICS’ arsenal of shoes. It is a fast shoe that introduces ASICS’ coveted new FlyteFoam mid sole. Thanks to the new mid sole material, it floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. I have been an avid follower of this shoe for a […]

Asics GT-2000 5 Review

ASICS comes back for a 5th time with their GT 2000 line of stability shoes. The sole is nearly identical from before, but the upper has had an overhaul giving a more updated look. The shoe is slightly heavier (.3 ounces) than last year. This was surprising considering the new upper. I personally cannot tell […]

New Balance 1500 v3 Review

This was my first experience running in the New Balance 1500’s and I was pleased with how well they performed on fast up-tempo training runs. The shoe had all the qualities you would want and expect in a racing shoe – comfortable and snug fit, durability and reliable cushioning. The shoe offers mild stability using […]
