    New Balance Zante 2 Review: Solid Sequel to a Great Show

    runblogger.com 14 Aug '16, 7pm

    It’s been a long time since I’ve put over 100 miles on a pair of shoes. I’m not entirely sure that I exceeded that with the New Balance Zante 2 (I don’t track miles on shoes anymore), but since I’ve run most of my miles for the past several months in them, I’d have to guess that I’m e...

  • Saucony Peregrine 6 Review: Interesting Update That Needs Some Refinement

    runblogger.com 14 Aug '16, 5pm

    One of the big stories for Saucony (at least from a marketing perspective) is the recent use of Everun material, which like the Boost material that is used in adidas shoes, is a TPU based cushioning material that touts better responsiveness and durability. The big difference with Sauc...

    2. Garmin Vivofit (original) – Like the Forerunner 620, I’ve had an original model Garmin Vivofit for several years (read my original Vivreview review here ). All I really want from the device is a rough estimate of my activity each day (i.e., step count), and it handles this very wel...

    Topo MT-2 and Hydroventure: Large Refinements in Topo’s Trail Line

    runblogger.com 22 Jun '16, 6pm

    While the uppers are much improved in these shoes over previous Topo models, the midsoles improved even more. The Runventure and original MT both felt dead to me. While the midsole was there and protected your foot a little, it added no life or “feel” to the shoe. I’m happy to report ...

    In Defense of Crocs: A Response to Huffington Post

    runblogger.com 05 Jun '16, 8pm

    This morning I was perusing my favorite source of hard-hitting journalism (the Facebook Trending News list), when I saw a headline that read: “Here’s What Podiatrists Think About Your Crocs .” Not being able to resist knowing what podiatrists think about my Crocs, I felt compelled to ...

  • Saucony Kinvara 7 Review

    Saucony Kinvara 7 Review

    runblogger.com 29 Jun '16, 11pm

    The big thing that Saucony is touting about the Kinvara 7 is the addition of a wedge of Everun cushioning in the midsole under the heel. From what I gather, Everun is similar to the adidas Boost compound – Saucony claims increased energy return, and better resistance to breakdown over...

  • Skechers GOtrail Ultra 3: Max Cushion Done Right

    Skechers GOtrail Ultra 3: Max Cushion Done Right

    runblogger.com 23 Jun '16, 12pm

    If you’ve made it this far in the review, then you already know that I like this shoe. A lot. The GOtrail Ultra 3 and Ultra Road have opened my mind to the possibility of max cushion shoes providing a ride that still feels natural and is more of an enhancement, in the form of added cu...

    On Blogging: Why I Hate My Email Inbox

    B) People who want me to promote their event/athlete/doctor/fitness guru. I get it, it’s hard to get the word out about your running event, the latest accomplishment by your athlete, or the new diet created by your fitness guru. I’m particularly sympathetic to those trying to promote ...
