Iâ€™m planning to race mostly on trails, but most of my daily runs are on the road. So Iâ€™m looking for road and trail recommendations.
Thanks for any thoughts.
Nike Vomero or Pegasus.
Both are great shoes in their latest iteration. Drop may be more in the 10-12 range, but that should ease the stretch on your achilles.
Three years ago I hadn't run in a Nike for 20 years. Now, I do 90% of my runs in Nike shoes. Amazing how times change.
Yes, Nikes are near the top of my list. Hadnâ€™t considered the Vomero, but had been looking at the Pegasus. Do you run in the regular or turbo? Also, any experience with the Epic React Flyknit?
The Epic React Flyknit is my current favorite shoe. They are fantastic and I look forward to every run in them. I did a fast 8.5 in them tonight. They have amazing â€śbounceâ€ť. I have recommended them to multiple people and I havenâ€™t had one person not love this shoe. Last years version is for sale now at running warehouse if you are interested.
I have not run in the Pegasus Turbo, only the standard Pegasus. Iâ€™m generally a cheapskate so I wait for shoes to go I sale and the Turbo hasnâ€™t done that yet (at least that I have found).
How is the durability of the Epic React Flyknit? Also, are you running in the React 2 or the original? Thereâ€™s a $10 difference for some of the colors on Running Warehouse.
+1 on the Epic React Flyknit!
Lots of soft cushioning, but not overly mushy. Thick rubber at the heel and toe; durability and midsole breakdown have both been very good. Itâ€™s the best shoe Iâ€™ve ever run in.
The React2 is out, so you can get the 1 for $75-80 online (got mine on eBay). The two are basically the same.
