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: Brooks PURE Connect 3

Brooks Pure Connect 3 Review

Ladies and gentlemen, I finally get to review the new Brooks PureConnect 3! (RunningShoes.com) I reviewed the original Brooks PureConnect and while I liked it for the most part, I had some issues with it after awhile. A lot of that original shoe carried on into round two, where not much was changed with the PureConnect 2. However, Brooks has incorporated a number of new changes in their third iteration and I have to say […]

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: Newton BOCO AT

Newton Boco AT Review

I love me some Newtons. I owe a lot of who I am as a runner now to getting into Newtons and dialing in my forefoot/midfoot strike. Now that I’ve been running a lot of trails and partaking in trail Ultramarathons, I was stoked to hear that Newton had been working on a new trail shoe called the BoCo AT (Boulder Colorado All Terrain?). Now that I’ve put some miles in the shoe, I’m pretty […]

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: New Balance 1010v2

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 12.59.39 PM

It’s been awhile, but I finally put my feet back into some New Balance goodness. The best part about the 1010v2 (http://runningshoes.com/mens-new-balance-1010-v2/blue-yellow) is that I LOVE THEM! Seriously, they have everything I want and need in a trail shoe and hit the mark on all accounts. They are light, flexibile, have an amazing toe box, a comfortable upper, some protection underneath, and just feel nimble and awesome. The only negatives are that they could potentially […]

The New 2014 Newtons!

2014 Newton Men's Motion III Mileage Trainer

This morning, I was greeted with an email in my inbox that all runners and running bloggers love to get: “Newton Running 2014 Trainers Offer More Pop Than Ever!”  That’s right, there will be some huge improvements (that I am VERY excited about) trickling across the Newton shoe line. The main improvement is that of a FIFTH lug on the Speed and Mileage models (the Distance, Motion and Gravity shoes). HELL YES. As you can […]

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 […]
