Shoe Test

I had a whole post thought out this morning on a somewhat serious topic, but then the morning went to heck. (We don't say "hell," just ask my midge.) I am no longer motivated to write anything with substance that takes any amount of real thought, so instead I am going to give you a shoe update. After trying the Nike Vomero Zoom+ 5s on two short (treadmill) runs, I returned them. They felt too heavy and hot, although they were nice and cushiony. Yesterday I bought three other pairs that felt great in the store and am taking each pair on a 1-2 mile (each) treadmill test run either today or tomorrow and hopefully narrow it down to two. The candidates are:
Do you have any of these shoes? If so, what do you think?

RUN: Ran seven miles with my littlest midge in the single jogger yesterday. We took it slow and easy because my legs still felt tired. I'm hoping a day off today (other than the possible shoe test) will be what they need to get back to feeling happy.


  1. I'd love to hear what you think of those shoes. I am in desperate need of new running shoes! I use Nikes. Adidas and I never fit well together...

  2. I have never tried any of those shoes. I am an Asics girl though, so they would be my first choice. Right now I am wearing the 2150's but have always run in the Kayanos (last 15 yrs) Good luck finding the right shoe for you.

  3. I've worn Mizuno Wave Riders and liked them. Don't think I've tried the 13's, though. Lately, I've worn Asics 1140's.

  4. Finding the right shoes can be so tough. Once you find the right pair, don't change again!

  5. I have the wave rider 13. Best shoe I have ever worn. I love love love them. Are you getting how much I love them? Seriously awesome!

  6. I have tested one of those shoes, but am not going to mention the name because I am positive our feet and our gait are completely different. What might work for me may be horrible for you.

  7. I had the Wave Riders and they just DID NOT work for current shoes (Saucony ProGrid Guide) are working fabulously though!
