Addidas Adizero Pro's - no arch support, no mid-foot thingy just a flat slab of foam on a light upper. Perfect

D2D, I got one pair from my local running shop at the time, and three pairs on t'internet. Can't remember which site, it's been a few years now. I occasionally look on eBay to see if anyone's selling.

Velo - Snap. I do the same. Rarely buy any shoes from an actual running shop. Usually get mine from Millet Sports, eBay or a good friend of mine who has a contact at Nike (it's not what you know, it's who you know!)

I was really loving my Newton Motions until I started to wear them over 1/2 marathon distance! Although to be fair I think the problem is more with my foot than the shoe! My left foot loves the Newton Motion but my right foot is a bit smaller and is grumbling about the fit!

I have just ordered some Saucony Mirage's to try as they are also light but so much cheaper, fingers crossed that they are a better fit!

Blast from the past! Just trawling through some old threads and found this. Have things changed in the last 7 years. I like my Nike VF 4%!

It would’ve been New Balance 1080s, or similar model but currently it is my Salomon Speedcross because

a) I won them in the Fetch advent draw last year
b) They are the only shoes I have

Got something to say?
