I need Adidas ZX Flux Femme Pas Cher to provide full disclosure on this one ¨C I helped with the development of the Skechers GoBionic by wear testing and providing direct feedback to the designers of the shoe. Thus, much like the Skechers GoRun 2, this is a shoe that I wore a lot and some of the suggestions I offered were incorporated into the final design. There¡¯s a lot that I like about the GoBionic ¨C it¡¯s extremely flexible, semi-firm yet quiet, and fits me perfectly. I love the removable insole with finished footbed beneath, and the shoe is incredibly comfy both on the run and for all-day wear (it¡¯s another shoe that I often wear to work). You can read my full Skechers GoBionic review here.I generally don¡¯t write full posts about shoe sales (not sure how I feel about doing this more often ¨C is it helpful to be alerted of these things?), but I got an email from adidas today indicating that they would be running a 20% off sale from September 7 to September 14. This discount applies to any running shoe sold on adidas.com (includes free shipping on orders over $50), including one of my current favorite shoes, the adidas adipur Adidas Adi Ease Homme France e Gazelle (see red shoe above).
Let¡¯s get down to the business at hand ¨C here are my top 3 cushioned, zero drop road shoes for 2012:When I think of the Altra Instinct 1.5, the two words that come to mind are flat and wide. Shaped like a Croc or Birkenstock, the Instinct is one of the most spacious shoes that I own. Version 1.5 sports a far more attractive upper than the original, and the full rubber outsole should provide ample durability. My only complaints about the Instinct are that it is a tad heavy and a bit inflexible, but for a flat shoe with a bit of cushion it¡¯s a great option. View my full Altra Instinct 1.5 review here.
The above Q&A basically describes my feelings on the topic of overpronation. You might think that you wear such shoes because you need support for your ¡°excessive¡± foot movement to prevent injury, but the reality is there is scant evidence at best that these shoes accomplish this goal, or that excessive pronation is even strongly linked to increased injury risk.
And I love and fully agree with the conclusion regarding what to do with the term ¡°overpronation¡±: Hopefully it is now clear that this is a term which contributes nothing to our understanding ¨C it is not definable, not reliable or valid, not diagnostic, its relationship to injury is not fully understood, and it does not dictate what the most appropriate management plan may be. It should not be replaced, it should be removed.
Inov-8 has really impressed me with their recent offerings, and they have a bunch of new shoes coming out that look promising. The Roclite 243 (pictured above) is a grippy, 3mm drop trail racing shoe. The Trailroc 150 (2nd photo above) is an ultraminimal addition to the Trailroc series ¨ C it¡¯s zero drop, supposedly super flexible, and weighs in under 6oz. Also coming are new minimal road shoes (Road-Xtreme line, women¡¯s versions pictured above) and new versions of the F-Lite series on Inov-8¡¯s anatomical last. For more details view this post on the Running Warehouse blog and posts on Toesalad (here and here).
Pearl Izumi is releasing a new line known as E:Motion which features a collection of sub-10oz running shoes. The most minimal of the E:Motion line are the EM N1 Road and EM N1 Trail. Both are 6mm drop Adidas Gazelle OG Homme Vente . More details can be found on the Running Warehouse blog.
