I’m researching on my next pair since I tend to change running shoes after completing the training and run of a marathon. So more or less every 6 months or 700-9000km
I’m waiting to see the new Kinvara 5 although I’m not very happy with the built quality of the 4s which I have now. Both pairs I had/have ripped near the toe but other than that the shoe fits like a glove and I love them. (The 3rd update was the best I think)
I’m also considering the new NB 1400v2 since they are also lightweight shoes and feel very similar. I have not run in them so its only quick impression from trying them on in the store.
I feel that choices are slightly limited and trying anything else than a minimal or lightweight shoe feel wrong and bulky. I’m also concerned about the drop of the shoe and being used to a 4mm the 10mm of NB might be an issue. Or am I getting too paranoid? maybe…
Which neutral lightweight shoe is good for training, racing or long diastase?
I wish there was a test run option on shoes….don’t like them, refund them.
How often do you change running shoes?
How many pairs do you own? Do you rotate?
I know that there are people running in dress shoes that can run faster and further than I can but part of the fun is gearing up, isn’t it?
