Over the last few weeks we have received the latest versions of shoes that dominate the standard neutral running shoe category: ASICS Cumulus 17, Brooks Ghost 8, Nike Pegasus 32, and Saucony Ride 8.

Adventuring in Alpstein

Posted on June 29, 2015 in Run Life


I live for trail running adventures. It’s what makes me jump out of bed at 5am on a Saturday morning (and every other morning, for that matter). Last month, while doing some training with our European team, Running Warehouse Europe, I was fortunate enough to take a weekend and do some exploring in beautiful Alpstein, Switzerland […]

Mizuno Enigma 5 Heel

Over the last 18 years, I have had my feet in a lot of Mizuno running shoes. From the first Wave Rider to the 18th, to the Wave Maverick, the Wave Legend, through the evolution of the Wave Conviction into the Wave Mercury into the Wave Inspire. One thing has remained true: Mizuno shoes are […]

The Nike Photosynthesis collection derives it’s inspiration from the great wonder of nature that provides energy to the earth; the sun. Photosynthesis is the process through which sunlight is converted into food for plants, oxygen is produced, and energy is made accessible to the world.

Cushioned Midsole

Peter Larson, of runnblogger.com, has brought to light an abstract of a study on the Effect of Highly Cushioned Shoes on Ground Reaction Forces during Running. The study examined impact forces between a “maximilist” running shoe and a “traditional” running shoe. And the abstract of the study suggests a highly cushioned shoe does not have […]

Posted on June 3, 2015 in Run Life


Happy National Running Day, run family! What a great day to celebrate being a runner, and all the things we love about running. 1. Community. The nod, wave, smile, or even quick “hello!” that passing runners exchange… It’s like we all belong to this secret club. It’s an instant connection that bonds fellow runners together. […]

Is it pronounced “won won”? Or is “oh-nay oh-nay”? We have heard it both ways directly from the horse’s mouth. As it stands currently, you can safely use “one one”, pronounced just like the number. We will keep you updated if it changes. Loosely translated from the Maori language, HOKA ONE ONE means “time to […]


Hoka One One Clifton 2 | First Look

Hoka One One Clifton 2 Panel

The Hoka One One Clifton was our best selling shoe for 2014. Why? It’s lightweight. It’s soft. It’s the lowest priced shoe in the Hoka line. This performance-oriented running shoe has been great for runners with a midfoot to forefoot strike, who appreciate well-cushioned ride that is light enough for fast paced running and feels […]


Saucony Nomad TR | First Look

Saucony Nomad Women's Heel

The Saucony Nomad TR is the real Kinvara TR. What I mean by this is the Kinvara TR that came out in July 2012 (and only lasted for two versions) was nothing like the Kinvara. With the Nomad TR, we find a trail shoe built on the same midsole height as the popular Kinvara road […]


Brooks Glycerin 13 | First Look

Posted on May 8, 2015 in First Look Running Shoes


With the Glycerin 13, Brooks has gone the route of making minor updates from the 12th version and considering some people’s superstitions about the number 13, this may be a wise move. In fact the updates are so minor, this shoe may as well be called the Glycerin 12b. The updates all have to do […]
