  • Nike Free RN 2018 Review

    Nike Free RN 2018 Review

    Nike Free Runs have been my go to running shoe for the past 5 years. I currently have retired 4 pairs of Free Runs equating to about two-thousand plus miles spent running in this brand of shoe. I have run through all elements and on all types of terrain to include road, treadmill and trail […]

  • Nike Lunarglide 9 Review

    Nike Lunarglide 9 Review

    Soft. In a good way! That’s the primary thing that comes to mind for me when running in this shoe. The look screams “wear me with that cute t-shirt dress” (Ok, and I will), while the run in them whispers…”next marathon shoe?” Maybe. I love the more narrow heel and secure toebox of ASICS GT-3000 […]

  • Nike Zoom Streak 6 Review

    Nike Zoom Streak 6 Review

    The defacto shoe for elite Nike athletes until the recent release of the radical and pricier Zoom VaporFly, the Streak 6 can still be seen on the feet of many of Nike’s top runners as they compete in world class marathons. It builds on the success of the Streak 5 by replacing the cushier flyknkit […]

  • Nike Zoom Fly Review

    Nike Zoom Fly Review

    If you were not able to get the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% shoes before Nike stopped selling them, or if you aren’t Eliud Kipchoge, Lelisa Desisa and Zersenay Tadese who are only a handful of elite runners to own a pair of Zoom VaporFly Elites, this is the next best shoe you can get from […]

  • Nike Speed Rival 6 Review

    Nike Speed Rival 6 Review

    Being a runner who is rapidly approaching age forty, I have a love/hate relationship with racing flats. Gone are days when I could simply buy the absolute lightest flat on the market and stretch the distance the shoe was intended for. These days, I look for racing flats with a decent amount of cushion, especially […]

  • Nike Terra Kiger 4 Review

    Nike Terra Kiger 4 Review

    The Nike Terra Kiger 4 is the next in line of the Nike trail series. This shoe is built low to the ground and is meant to push the limits on your tempo as you run. Although it is a lower profile and is truly meant for a trail race, these shoes can comfortably log […]

  • Nike Zoom Vomero 13 Review

    Nike Zoom Vomero 13 Review

    The Nike Zoom Vomero 13 is one of the most popular neutral trainers made by Nike. Representing their top level of cushion, the Vomero can sustain a pounding and can log a lot of miles. In my testing, it already logged 125+ miles before the writing of the review. However, there is also a reason […]

  • Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% Review

    Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% Review

    If the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% had any comparable predecessors I would certainly draw on them. However, in this case, the mold has been completely broken and redesigned from the ground up. A brand new EVA compound, a carbon plate, and a perfectly fitting upper all had to be designed from scratch to try and […]

  • Nike Zoom Structure 21 Review

    Nike Zoom Structure 21 Review

    To spice up a foreboding 800’s workout this morning, I decided to run some of the scheduled repeats in Structure 21 and the rest in my favorite speed shoe, Nike Odyssey 2, to see if the Structure being half an ounce lighter made a difference. Turns out I still much prefer Odyssey for fast running, […]

  • Nike Epic React Flyknit Review

    Nike Epic React Flyknit Review

    Any time that I see a new running shoe touting proprietary technology, whether it be a new foam or upper material, I usually yawn and look towards the tried and true shoes I’ve been able to run into the ground (i.e., past 500 miles). However, I’ve been surprised several times in the last decade. New […]
