Hoka Speedgoat 2 5

Shoe Review: Hoka One One Speedgoat 2

Before you read further I would invite you to take a step back and check out the review for the original Speedgoat… or better yet don’t and if you did read it, then just forget it. Why you might ask, well because Hoka took everything they tried with the original model and turned it on its head. In what we see as probably one of the best updates from Hoka to date, the Speedgoat 2 is something that Karl “Speedgoat” Meltzer and the Ethan should be proud of.

Newton Fate3 5

Shoe Review: Newton Fate 3

Some brands seem to have mastered the equation when it comes to the creation of loyal followers, never has this been more true than with Newton. People who are loyalists swear by them, they know all about Newton’s patented POP technology and probably their specific number as well. We looked at the Fate 2 last year, so we were excited to look at the latest update… the Fate 3.

HOKA Clifton4 5

Shoe Review: Hoka One One Clifton 4

Every year we look forward to this one, so when the Clifton 4s landed we were really excited to say the least. No other shoe Hoka One One offers draws more conversation as people debate the changes from version to version. It is their quintessential neutral road shoe and for some its everything you love about Hoka and for others just the opposite.

Saucony Kinvara8 5

Shoe Review: Saucony Kinvara 8

If you know any performance runners out there who are Saucony fans, then my guess is they have raved about the Kinvara. It has been the choice for elite runners for years now and the community has been waiting to see what this next version would look like. To me, this update with the Kinvara 8 is starting to make the shoe as welcoming to recreational runners looking for some speed as it is for elites.

Topo FliLyte 2 2

His and Her’s Shoe Review: Topo Athletics Fli-Lyte 2

Topo Athletic is one of those brands that rides just under the mainstream radar. When you have them on and happen to spot someone else in a pair, it typically results in a subtle nod, as if you both know something everyone else is missing out on. You also don’t find them at traditional running stores, but instead walking stores and specialty shops. We have reviewed them in the past with shoes like the Terraventure and the Ultrafly, but we are back again with the new Fli-Lyte 2. This is Topo’s lightest cushion neutral road shoe.

Brooks Glycerin 15 5

Shoe Review: Brooks Glycerin 15

There are times when I see revision numbers from certain shoe brands and I am blown away and this has never been more true than with the Brooks Glycerin 15. To think we have gone through fifteen revisions of the model speaks to the strength of not only the brand, but also the platform. The Glycerin is Brooks maximum cushioned neutral road model and the real question is after fourteen tries, how has the latest turned out…

Saucony Peregrine7 6

Shoe Review: Saucony Peregrine 7

The Peregrine is a flagship in Saucony’s lineup when it comes to trail shoes. They are aggressive visually and when you share out in the wild, you will probably notice more than you can count. This yea Saucony has introduced some competitors in the form of their KOA lineup, but I was still excited to see what this year’s Peregrine had in store for us.
