Review: Hoka One One Conquest

Hoka One One Conquest Review

I’ll be honest, I’m a fan of Hokas. After all these miles, I have found that I thoroughly enjoy the move into maximalist shoes – shoes that provide an extra amount of midsole cushioning. While I spend a lot of my time running in more minimal, lower drop shoes for all sorts of runs (technical trail & roads), I think rotating into a soft maximal shoe from time to time can benefit you in multiple […]

Review: New Balance Fresh Foam 980

New Balance Fresh Foam 980 Review

  I finally got my feet into a pair of New Balance’s new maximalist shoe, the New Balance Fresh Foam 980. Now I’ve known about this shoe for the last year and knew I’d want to try it as soon as it was dropped. I had high expectations, thanks in part to New Balance’s excellent marketing campaign, but was sadly disappointed in the final product. The midsole material in this shoe is it’s biggest selling […]

Review: Mizuno Hitogami

Mizuno Hitogami Review

Ladies and gentlemen, the Mizuno Wave Hitogami (RunningShoes.com). It has been a number of years since I ran in a Mizuno shoe. I had real problems with the wave technology – the plastic layer in the heel – and couldn’t get past it when I would wear the shoe. However, many of you have asked me to review them so I thought, why the hell not, let’s try them again! And boy, I’m glad I […]

Review: Altra Lone Peak 1.5 & Altra Torin

Click here for the Altra Torin review!

So after a few years of sending them emails, and dozens of you tweeting at them, Altra finally agreed to send me a couple of pairs of their shoes for review! I am stoked to have the opportunity to try these zero drop, wide toe boxed shoes of magic. Not only are they one of the few shoe manufacturers that work with zero drop technology, but they’re fantastic at educating and promoting proper running form […]

Review: Hoka One One Stinson, Bondi B 2, Rapa Nui 2

Click here to watch the Hoka One One Bondi B 2 review!

I finally did it. After years of anticipation, emails from viewers, and reaching out to the manufacturers, I am finally able to test and review some of the most unique and anticipated shoes yet: The Hoka One One Stinson Evo, The Bondi B 2 and the Rapa Nui 2. Each of these shoes has it’s own character, benefits and flaws, so I’ll let the videos do the talking. I will say that I was hugely […]

Review: Brooks PureDrift

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 1.06.14 PM

So the Brooks PureDrift (http://runningshoes.com/mens-brooks-puredrift/nightlife-black-euro-blue-silver) has been out for some time now, but I’ve wanted to get my feet into it since it’s release. FINALLY, I have the chance to review them and while they’re a fun, fast shoe that really caters to light, efficient and fast runners, they have some issues that bug me. While the upper is soft, light and comfortable, it bunches in the toe box. While the toe box is wide […]

Review: Salomon Advanced Skin S-Lab Hydro 5 Set

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 12.40.14 PM

After a lot of deliberation regarding which pack to get as my next review pack, I opted for the new Salomon 5L S-Lab pack. I couldn’t be more happy with my decision. This pack is PERFECT for those runners looking for something extremely light and minimal, though not lacking in the storage department. This pack is crazy comfortable, extremely nimble, fits like a glove, has plenty of room for multiple bottles, some layers, nutrition, a […]

Review: Suunto Ambit 2

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 12.28.12 PM

So i’ve been rocking the Ambit2 for a few months now in hopes of getting a good idea of how this watch compares to not only the original Ambit but also the Garmin Fenix. After a number of issues with the Garmin Fenix dropping signal, restarting and failing despite plenty of battery life, I knew it was time to switch to another watch. Now remember, this watch is primarily for adventure runners, ultra runners, explorers, […]
