The North Face Ultra Endurance Review

The North Face Ultra Endurance is a neutral, varied-trail running shoe designed to tackle tough conditions over the longest ultras. While this shoe does provide ample protection and comfort over tough trails, fit issues and weight need to be addressed to make this a truly great trail shoe


Adidas Ultra Boost Review

With a full length Boost midsole, Adidas would be hard pressed to err in the design of the Ultra Boost. However, rather than combining an equally durable upper they rolled out their answer to Nike's flyknit material. Prime knit, while looking cool, feels very restrictive and somehow sloppy when actually training in the shoe. If


Hoka OneOne Mafate 4 Review

The Hoka One One Mafete 4 is a maximal trail shoe for runners requiring additional medial support that many other maximal cushioned shoes fail to provide. With an excellent locked upper incorporating a wide toe box, and enough cushioning and protection for the most severe ultra distance trail races. Runners needing a


Mizuno Wave Creation 16 Review

The Mizuno Wave Creation 16 may work for some heavier runners, but runners under 175 lbs are not going to feel any energy return due to the stiffness of the wave platform. This neutral trainer misses the mark on all accounts due to unresponsive cushioning, lack of any flexibility, and ridiculous price point


Adidas Adizero Tempo Boost 7 Review

The Adidas Tempo 7 is the first incarnation of this shoe to use the popular Boost midsole EVA foam. While Adidas hits the mark on just about every aspect of this shoe, a very firm feel underfoot left me with sore feet on longer runs


Mizuno Wave Rider 18 Review

Right out of the box I could tell that Mizuno listened to its hardcore fans, tuning the Wave Rider 18 into a lightweight, responsive, high mileage machine

Those of us coming from a competitive team background, be it [&hellip


Saucony Ride 7 Review

The Ride 7 is the best version of this model yet. Reduced weight coupled with more plush cushioning makes this shoe a must try for any runner looking for a neutral cushioning shoe to log big miles in


Saucony Kinvara 5 Review

The Kinvara 5 picks up right where the four left off. In fact, the last several versions of this shoe are nearly the same. While the Kinvara continues to be a leader in the lightweight, neutral cushioning category, most other brands have now caught on. Runners who have enjoyed past versions will love the Kinvara 5, but


Pearl Izumi Road M2 Review

The Pearl Izumi Road M2 will surprise a lot of runners looking for a high mileage stability trainer that feels like a lightweight and neutral shoe. Offering just a modicum of support, the M2 should not be worn by runners needing a great deal of stability or motion control. On the flip side, this shoe can be worn by neutral


New Balance Fresh Foam 980 Review

The New Balance Fresh Foam 980 uses a new foam technology to produce excellent cushioning, protective enough for all types of running, in a lightweight package
