re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread
I’m a heavier guy that just got into running again. Normal arch, so neutral shoe is best for me.

In addition to attempting a jog in my athleisure shoes (ultraboosts), I tried some Hokas and altras. I must say, the best shoe for me, by far, is the new balance 1080v10.

Any bigger guys looking for some cushioning please give the 1080s a look.

Always best to go early. eBay resellers pick all the good stuff...though they usually look for hype stuff like basketball shoes and Air Max. Running and golf shoes tend to sneak under the radar.

1080v10 has been on my to try list for a while. There like 8 other pairs on that list, but it’s close to the top with the Rincon, Peg 37, and Saucony Ride 13

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread
I tried the Rincon and Bondi.

Bondi is like running on marshmallows, I've never felt anything like it. possibly even too much cushioning even for my large frame.

I liked the minimalistic upper of the Bondi, but the cushioning was a little firm for my taste. but the shoes were on clearance so I'll probably keep them for walking or possibly when I lose some weight.

1080v fell in the middle of those in terms of cushioning (probably closer to the Bondi).

Yeah I think the Bondi is Hoka’s maximal maximalist shoe so would make senses that it rides a bit soft.

I just got some Nike Wildhorse for the trails in north GA. Hiked De Soto falls about 2 miles and got in the creek.

The first real use and they were great on the trail and in the water.

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread
I am not a runner but I go to regymen 4 times a week. I have been having ball of foot pain lately and the doc at BROC suggested getting new shoes. I was using the reebok nano 9 till now. She suggested shoes with lot of support for the toes and ball of feet. I have narrowed it down to the Hoka Clifton and Altra paradigm but not able to make up my mind. Any body here that has suffered through metatarsalgia?

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread
Ordered a pair of the original Reebok Floatride Run Fast last night for $80. I saw the 2.0 for $100, but it’s about an ounce heavier. Always heard good things about the OG Run Fast. Planning to use it as a tempo (assuming I ever do a tempo run again, lulz) shoe. I’m a fan of the Pebax, ya heard. Some deals to be had on the Floatride Energy and Energy 2.0. I have the Energy as a daily and love them. I can post some links later if anyone is interested.

I think this will finally bump the Boston out of my lineup. Never really felt good in them. Will rotate the ZFFK (200+ miles) with the FRRF. So the purchase was justified I reckon (just practicing my spiel for when my wife sees the box come in)...

50 miles



250 miles

Those are the Speed Elite and Razor 3 with 50, and 250 miles respectively.

I'm done with Skechers until the durability improves. Before they were 2/3rds the price because they were 2/3rds the shoe. Big boy price now but the quality is still kind of shitty.

Also, the foam is light and soft but the return is nonexistent. We no longer live in an age where we have to choose between soft and responsive.

300 miles and 320 dollars worth of shoe. Pitiful.

You should check out Atreyu.

Why's that? The technology is older and there is no rubber on the soles. The subscription? They look sweet, but I don't think they'd hold up for serious training.

Foams are different but closest comparison I’ve seen in terms of ride and upper is the Razor 3. It’s a simple, no frills, not overpriced shoe that could likely get you 250/300 miles for $95. Figure that’s what you are more or less looking for. Kinvara and and NB Rebel also come to mind for mid drop, mid stack, tempo trainers.

Sorry, I guess I was confused by the recommendation. Skechers only redeeming benefit for me as a runner is that they're light. Buying the same/similar shoe for 95 bucks is still kind of a rip off, yeah? Man, they sure do look good though.

Anyhow, I'm not loyal to any brand. Gonna give New Balance a go after taking 2 years off from their Revlite foam disaster I had with them.

Just wanted to say I'm loving the Floatride Energy. Don't you have/had a pair of the 2.0?

Yeah it’s all relative. If you’re shopping last years models on sale like I do then $95 is still sort of steep for a shoe not advertised to go more than 250/300 miles.

Which NB’s you eyeing up?

I have a love/hate relationship with my Reebok’s right now. Upper holds a lot of moisture in this weather and I find the upper has a sloppy fit for my feet. Wish I could get a shoe with the FFE foam but at a 20/28 stack and the upper of my Brooks Hyperion Tempos. Would be a perfect daily trainer. Would love to train in the ZF SP but have reservations about daily miles in a plated shoe.

I had the same thought about my Razor 3s the other day. I've only put 70 miles on them, but they look like your Speed Elites. They've already lost traction and feel dead.

If you're looking and NBs, there are some good deals out there on the FuelCell Rebel. A light shoe with a moderate stack height and a fair amount of cushion.

be careful with wildhorse and water. I've ran in the 3, 4, and 5 and found the 5 to be rather slippery on wet rock and timber. But still liked enough to run beaverhead 100k and mountain lakes 100 in them.

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread
I had both. Great ride, great shoe. The upper on both are trash, which is why I've not re-bought.

To J and PHB I had already ordered the Rebel when I posted. It's got that type of sole I really like; firmish but doesn't beat you up. Tons of return and the extra support through the out-midfoot through the toe is perfect for a midfoot striker.

The upper is not great. Knit uppers have to go if you are trying to make a serious shoe. This one is better than probably every other one I tried, but cannot beat the lock of a lace up.

I remember this shoe getting drug in reviews and the only thing I can think of is that it's ugly on the foot. Other than that there's no reason for this shoe to be rated as low as it was.
