Review: Salomon Sense Mantra & S-Lab Sense Ultra

website

SALOMON SENSE MANTRA The Salomon Sense Mantra is an AWESOME shoe and has proved itself time and time again. When I first received the shoe, I didn’t think it would be up my alley, but honestly, it blew my mind each time I would take it out for a day on the trails. The shoe kept me nimble, protected, and fast on the trails. It features superb traction and the outsole has held up amazingly […]

Review: Brooks Pure Connect

Screen Shot 2012-08-31 at 5.54.18 PM

BROOKS PURE CONNECT I FINALLY get to review the Brooks PureConnect. Its a dynamite reduced-running shoe with a smooth, fast, flexible ride. The BioMogo is super soft and the shoe fills that niche of low-drop and extra-cushioned shoe nicely. The shoe felt narrow at first, right out of the box, but actually running in them proved they do expand enough to be comfortable (those with wider sized feet, try them on first. I’ve heard the […]

Race Report: The 2012 Big Sur Marathon

big_sur_half_marathon

I may have whispered the word, “Wow”, to myself hundreds of times in a 4 hour time-span. It was pretty much the only way to sum up my 2012 Big Sur Marathon experience. I mean, when you have 26.2 miles of rugged cliffsides, breathtaking ocean-views, quad-slamming hills, and brutally canted California coastal highway between the start and finish line, you’re pretty much guaranteed of loving every second of the run. This marathon did not disappoint. […]

Review: The 2012 Newton Distance (Distancia)

still

I’m pretty stoked that I finally get the chance to review Newton’s brand new 2012 Distance Lightweight Trainer. This is a fantastic shoe from Newton and betters an already dynamite shoe from the 2011 line. I train in this shoe; I race in this shoe; I party in this shoe. There are a handful of changes to the 2012 model – which I cover in the video. While most of the changes may seem minor […]

Review: The Montrail Rogue Racer

still

The Montrail Rogue Racer light weight trail runner is a pretty stellar piece of footwear. It’s not only light and fast, but extremely comfortable. This is my go to trail shoe for longer distances on compact trail surfaces. While a little thick in the heel to toe department (9mm), they do provide enough cushioning to help on those steep descents. I highly recommend you check out and try on a pair of Montrail Rogue Racers. […]

Review: The Newton MV2

Screen Shot 2012-01-14 at 7.25.30 PM

I really enjoy running in the Newton MV2 (“MV Squared”). This sucker is light and fast, exactly what it was designed to do. While I love it for anything from 5ks to 10ks (and it’s capable of MUCH more), I haven’t been able to wear it on anything longer than a half marathon without soreness. But that could be due to my weak, weak, ginger legs. One of the major changes from other Newton shoes is […]

Review: The Newton Distance Lightweight Trainer

Screen shot 2011-10-05 at 2.01.59 PM

I finally get a chance to review my Newton Distance Lightweight Trainers. This is my go-to trainer and the shoe I’ve run in the most. In fact, I just ran the San Francisco Marathon in this shoe. It’s fantastic for forefoot runners, or those who are further along in the process of natural running. If you’re looking to START forefoot running, I would recommend looking at the Gravitas or Sir Isaac from Newton before this […]

Review: The La Sportiva Crosslite 2.0

Screen shot 2011-06-24 at 8.18.45 PM

Here is the GingerRunner.com review of the La Sportiva Crosslite 2.0. After wearing them for a considerable number of trail runs on all sorts of surfaces, I stand by these shoes as a great addition to the trail runner line-up. They are light, sturdy, rugged as hell, and simple. While there are a few problems (laces, stiffness, height) they are outweighed by the shoe’s ability to adapt to different trail running conditions. From the hard […]

Review: The Newton Gravitas

The Newton Gravitas

Here’s my comprehensive review of the Newton Gravitas. It’s a fantastic model from Newton, a relatively new boutique brand to the running world. With forefoot lug technology, these shoes strive to be the best for forefoot/midfoot runners hoping to better their stride, increase their speed and comfort. I love them. I’ve been wearing newtons for about 6 months now (this is my second pair) and I rarely find myself running in my other shoe options. There […]
