From what I have seen, the Hattori may offer a tiny bit more cushion than Vibrams, which is what I want for longer runs. It also appears to have a more foot-shaped design, ala the Altra Instinct, which I like. I would try that shoe, but I think lavonjarg.de
would be more underfoot than I want. It seems like the Hattori might be a great compromise between the Bikila and Altra, as far as zero-drop shoes go. I know you will be writing a report on the Hattori, but what do you think about the width of the toebox thus far?Also, the black/green Hattori looks downright awesome.Had I known they would be on-sale at the Boston expo, I would have given my friend who ran some cash to score a Nike Air Max 720 Womens
pair. I got my Bikilas in a similar on marathon Monday last year.As for the Kinvara, I am really starting to dislike mine. Nike Air Max 97 Womens
I ran in them twice last week and they felt clunky, as if the flat, inflexible sole was controlling my footfalls too much. It is tough switching from the Bikilas to the Kinvaras without noticing that. On a 5-miler yesterday, the sensation was bugging me so much that I just took the Kinvaras off and ran the last half mile barefoot. I can’t help but thinking that a part of it has to do with me being a slower runner (9-ish miles). It is easier for me to get a good, clean, mid-foot landing when I am moving faster. They may still work for tempo runs.I was having some issues with the laces on the Trail Gloves. Mine are ridiculously long. I had to double knot them, which I have never had to do on any other shoe. I Adidas Superstar Damen
also had to fuss with them a lot to get the right combo of snug and loose where I wanted it. Yesterday, I saw a Adidas ZX 850 Womens
Yankz in a KC area running store and decided to give them a shot. They are basically elastic laces with a cool little fastening system. Set up was easy. So far, I really like them. They make getting the shoe on a bit more difficult, but because they stretch, they make the shoe fit a lot better. Now, they feel almost slipper like across the tops of my feet.I hope Merrell refines the inside of the Trail Glove Adidas ZX Flux Womens
with the next go around. They are comfortable, but mine have a weird little flap of material on the outside about in the middle of the shoe. If I’m not careful, it can get folded back and be a little annoying until I fix it. I think Pete mentioned something about this being addressed with the Sonic Glove. Also, the outer edges of the tongue can fold over, causing discomfort after a few miles. It is easily fixed, but Nike Air Max 720 Dames
it could be a bit more finished.
The only real issue I have with the trail gloves is some minor pain on the outer edges of my feet. This is not the fault of the shoe. I think it has to do with they way my foot and the sole interact in that area. My foot seems to be ever so slightly wider than the sole. After wearing them all day, my feet can be a bit tender on the lateral edges.I bought a pair of Trail Gloves Adidas Superstar Donne
about a month ago and have had mixed emotions since then. On the one hand, I agree with the vast majority of this review: they are a very well designed minimalist shoe and I’m certainly going to use them to improve my efficiency and legs/foot strength. They’re also a nice alternative to Vibrams for people, like me and FoCo, who have funky toes. However, the one huge flaw seems to be the Vibram soles. I live in Hong Nike Air Max 2017 Womens
Kong, a place that actually has lots of mountainous trails, but a place that is also very moist, with ridiculous humidity. I find that the shoes simply don’t have enough grip, and it’s common to slip around on mossy rocks (even if it hasn’t rained in a day or two). The other trail shoes that I run in (Solomon, Hoka OneOne, Montrail Rogue Racer…etc) all seem to have adequate grip (probably due to more lugs?). So, I’d Adidas ZX 850 Femme
recommend that they sacrifices a few tenths of an oz. to guarantee better grip. As it is, I’d afraid to really run fast with them, especially on downhill technical sections.
