Brooks Hyperion Elite Review

We have been long waiting for the Brooks answer to the craziness surrounding Nike’s Vaporfly and Alphalfy Carbon plate technology, so we were excited, to say the least when the Hyperion Elite showed up. We have seen blacked-out versions of their shoes on many of their athletes including Des Linden, but at TRE back in 2019 we got our first really look at them. When it was time to actually ...

Fastest Running Shoes, the Battle for Number One

Everyone wants to be fast and manufacturers are doing everything they can to make that more achievable. Shoes are getting lighter, more technically advanced, and even forcing governing bodies to put standards place to oversee what can and can't be done. The following list is some of the fastest out there right now and all road legal. Brooks Brooks Hyperion Elite Drop: 8mm Weight: 6.9oz Price: $250 Note this was NOT the ...

Under Armour HOVR Machina Review

Under Armour is not necessarily a name you find yourself uttering when you think running shoes, but with shoes like the HOVR Machina coming to market, it might be time to take notice. Every model of Under Armour running shoes are connected out of the box with the UA running app which is designed to help everyday runners perform better. On top of that, the shoe uses the latest material ...

Skechers GOrun 7 Plus Featured

Skechers GOrun 7+ Hyper Review

We have to give a lot of credit to Skechers with the redesign of this one. The GOrun 7 was actually a fantastic shoe, but the upper left a little to be desired for quite a few people both in appearance and somewhat in function. To that end, Skechers did the ultimate and just scrapped it and introduced an entire new radial knit upper that is the GOrun 7+ Hyper. Quick ...

Hoka One One Arahi 4 Featured

Hoka One One Arahi 4 Review

Hoka has always done a great job balancing cushion and weight when it comes to shoe design, but they have taken it to another level by also taking into account stability. The Arahi model has gone through a number of iterations over the years, some looking a bit odd, but all with the same goal to give runners who need a little support a highly performant shoe. The Arahi 4 ...

Skechers GOrun Speed Elite Hyper Review

We knew it was coming and versions of the Skechers GOrun Speed Elite have been circulating for the last several months, but with the Olympic Trials rapidly approaching, it was time to make them publicly available. We got our hands on the Speed Elite and had a chance to run them side by side with the other carbon plated models on the market to see if they could compete. Bottom ...

New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v10

New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080 v10 Review

The New Balance 1080 has always been the shoe in their lineup you could trust to have cushioning, it was always the plushest. When we first saw these, we were frankly shocked at the radical upper redesign the v10 has gone through, and while we didn’t love the v9... it is quite a departure. Thankfully they left that beautiful Fresh Foam midsole in tact, and focused on the problem areas ...

Saucony Triumph ISO 17 Featured

Saucony Triumph 17 Review

When it comes to the Saucony Triumph platform, it is always a conversation around comfort and really never performance. With the release of the Triumph 17, Saucony is pushing on that a bit with some subtle tweaks, but the question is can they retain their comfort crown. The lighter weight and updated midsole are clearly an aggressive move for the platform, but as it turns out... it runs better than ...

361 Spire 4 Review

361 has been an interesting one from us from day one. We have looked at many of their shoes over the last few years, but nothing felt as compelling a leap forward as the new Spire 4. They went back to the drawing board in many ways and attempted to bring a lot of what is good across the running ecosystem into a single shoe, a cushioned everyday runner that ...

Skechers GOMeb Speed 6 1

Skechers GOMeb Speed 6 Hyper Review

This one totally threw us for a loop when they came out in late October, early November and honestly, it looks so similar to the Razor 3, we weren't sure what Skechers was thinking with this release. So we were curious about what the differences actually were between all these models. The easy answer is the GOMeb Speed 6 Hyper is the lower stack race day shoe that harkens back ...
