/ Which road shoe?
In an attempt to improve my speed I've joined a running club and will be looking at 10k and half marathon races. The Salomons are a bit clunky in the clubs training runs, so I'm looking for a more road oriented shoe.
Looking for a neutral shoe, (I wear orthotics), not too heavy but with a bit of cushioning as I run with the grace of a hippo. I know the best shoe is the one that fits, but pointers would be welcome.
It is very much what suits your foot and running style, but I like the Adidas Adizero range, mainly the Adios, but also the Tempo and Ace (love the Ace, but struggle to get hold of them). Nice light neutral shoes without feeling like they give no protection or are about to fall apart after 100 miles.
Hoka One One Stinson Tarmac.
And I am on my fifth or sixth pair of Brooks Adrenalines. I get them as cheaply as I can, in as out of date a model as I can. Iusually payabout £60-£65. I run about 50 mpw.
Most trail shoes are ridiculously heavy. i do wonder who tests them and if they get star struck at being a tester and don't just say 'look these are shite'..
