re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread
How long should running shoes last? I've had my current pair since mid January, New Balance running shoes. I only wear them for running, not walking or just day to day wear. Averaging about 10-12 miles a week running but that number is going to go up as I train for my half marathon.

Typically between 300 and 500 miles depending on how you run. I go through shoes quick bc I think I have a heavier foot strike. Last couple pairs started giving me nagging shin pain at the 280/300 mile range.

300-500. Rotate through several shoes so you don’t run in the same pair every day.

what would you say the Rebel v2 compares to best?


Honestly like kballa said, the FC feels like Zoom X. Which is obviously superior. The Rebel v2 feels like a pair of cushier N% minus the ridiculous stack height and plate. With a better upper IMO. Perfect width for my foot.

Tempted to try the rebel 2 and/or rc elite 2 but I already have too many damned pairs of shoes.

I have a feeling the rebel 2 will feel similar to the rc elite 1, as I find the carbon plate in the Rc elite 1 to be almost unnoticeable.

PSA

Saucony Endorphin Speed 25% off. Report not much changed from V1 to V2 which released today. main change I read was lacing system for better lock down.

I refuse to try on the RC Elite 2 as I know I will buy them.

Enjoy. I think I'm somewhere around 250mi in my Speeds and they still feel great. Ordered a second pair a couple months ago and they're still in the box.

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread
Speeds aren't my favorite shoe but I have 310 miles on current pair and I can probably get another 100. Tread has held up surprisingly well. I think they did "stretch" out a little. I wouldn't have bought another pair at anything over $120. At $90 they are a steal!

other shoe updates:
Sketchers Go Run Razor Excess - have 115 miles on them. Feel the same as when they were new, firm ride and good response and road feel. Tread is showing a little wear but that's not unusual for any of my shoes. Still not sure the true purpose of this shoe. I like it for up-tempo run in the 8-10 mile range. Probably still feel good in them up to 15. will try to get 15-20 mile run in them.

Adidas Terrex Speed Ultra: if you like Adidas Boston (up to the new version) and you need a trail shoe this is it. Feels almost the same. Had two 5-milers in them and then went 50k (technically 28.x because I missed a marker and went off course) and had no issues. Couple of water crossings and short rocky sections, no slippage. Couple muddy spots got slippery but probably would have been in most shoes. they transition to pavement with ease. So far so good. Think they are probably good for a race up to 50 miles but beyond that they may be a little too firm and make your feet tired.

Yep, I hope I’m not let down. Have a July 4 road race I’ll probably break them out at. Looking for these to replace hoka rincons in my rotation for faster days. They just wear down too fast.

Right on, Frankenstein. I did the same thing but @ Roadrunner Sports, and that was only because they saved my credit card information without my permission and up charged me to a VIP membership renewal that I didn’t approve about 9 months ago. So I think I was out 220 total.

By the by, avoid RRS if you can. Their business practices are shady at best and straight up illegal at worst.

As for the speed, got 420 on em right now and probably should have retired them at 350. They are pretty flat, but only have to last one more day.

I already have the speeds and am tempted to get another pair on clearance from fleet feet since I have a $15 gift certificate to use.

Just committed to first pair. Anxiously anticipating first plate pavement pounding experience.

They hype is real, the speeds are IMO the best all around shoe available. $90 after discounts for v1 is a steal.
