Brooks GTX

When it’s warm and raining, who cares if your feet and shoes get wet? Just get a pair of thin running socks so your socks don’t get heavy with moisture. It’s not a big deal. But when it’s cold and wet, it’s a different story. Most running shoes are built with breathable mesh to allow […]

Saucony Triumph ISO 2 | Review Comparison to the First Triumph ISO

Posted on November 16, 2015 in Gear Running Shoes

Triumph ISO 1 and 2

Summary Several changes to the outsole and flex grooves result in the Triumph ISO 2 (Men’s | Women’s) feeling less squishy soft.

Brooks Launch 3 Close-up

Available January 2016 – MSRP $100.00 The forthcoming Brooks Launch 3 begs the question: Do runners still want performance running shoes with a 10mm heel-toe offset?┬áThe thinking goes like this: as you run faster you move further forward on your foot, so why would you want a shoe with a thick heel potentially getting in […]


New Balance Vazee Prism | First Look
