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. The shoe is still on the softer side, but the addition of Everun cushioning helps the shoe feel snappier. A nearly identical fit maintains its ability to accommodate a broad range of feet. […]

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? The 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 […]

ASICS Fuzex Lyte Women's

Available February 2016 – Fuzex MSRP $110.00, Fuzex Lyte MSRP $ 85.00 ASICS is bringing two new shoes to market.

Available December 15, 2015 – MSRP $150.00 Men’s 1080 v6 | Women’s 1080 V6 For the first time, New Balance adds Fresh Foam cushioning to a legacy shoe, the 1080. While New Balance is going to make a big deal about the change to the Fresh Foam midsole, I think the bigger story here is […]

HOKA Clayton Close-up

Available April 2016 – MSRP $150.00 | Shop Men’s | Shop Women’s | Light, fast, and soft usually don’t go together, but they do with the HOKA ONE ONE Clayton.  Although it’s not the first running shoe to accomplish this feat (think Nike LunaRacer/Tempo and original Saucony Kinvara), this shoe is unique. With a molded […]
