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. Construction: ...

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. The shift from the Clifton 1 to ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. Construction: Upper The upper on the Peregrine ...

Shoe Review: Altra One V3

Tha Altra One has always been a mainstay in their lineup since day one. It represents everything from Altra has been preaching from the beginning including a lower stack height and less cushion, ZeroDrop, and a FootShape toe box. It’s also always been the lightest shoe they make, so what we have here is a shoe made for performance. A lot of folks were excited to see what was next ...

Shoe Review: Hoka One One Arahi

With every release, the Hoka lineup is getting a little more diverse and a little crazier aesthetically. The Arahi is no exception as this new support road shoe features a new outsole design and a whole new profile. It's got a lot going for it and like all Hoka shoes it still attempts to deliver on the promise of more cushion, better response, and lighter weight. Construction: Upper The Arahi upper is ...

NewBalance FreshFoam ZanteV310

His and Her’s Shoe Review: New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v3

We are back today with another New Balance shoe, this time it's the Fresh Foam Zante v3. After recently looking at the Fresh Foam 1080v7, its hard not to compare it to the Zante v3. Where the 1080v7 was packed with cushion, structure, material, and was even a little weighty, the Zante v3 is the total opposite. Instead, this shoe is designed for speed and responsiveness, but we put it ...

Shoe Review: Hoka One One Clayton 2

Alright, the Clayton is back and as much as we loved the first version of Hoka's first real speed shoe, the Clayton 2 really takes it up a notch. When the Clayton first was released, it didn't look like everything else in the Hoka lineup. It had a totally new visual design on the upper and was lighter, faster, and more responsive, but more than anything it rounded out their ...
