Trail Running Shoe Showdown 2016: Racing

I am consistently asked what my favorite shoes are and my answer is always the same, it depends. What terrain are you on, distances are you covering, what’s your pace, any lower extremity conditions, etc. These are all the questions I ask and even then I can return a list of what might work for you, but from that point it’s up to you. I don’t believe in the perfect shoe, but I believe in the perfect shoe for the individual and for the condition. To that end, this article is all about trail shoes and more importantly, trail racing.

Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie

Clothing Review: Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie

The gear team had a chance to tackle some runs with the new Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie and this jacket is honestly just insane. It is listed as super light, but when you first pull it into your hands its almost a little alarming at how little it weighs. You really begin to question how high the quality is and how much its going to do for you, and then you run with it and you are blown away.
