Trying a new lighter weight racing shoe for running

New Balance 890, which is much lighter than the Nike Zoom Vomero I'm running now. Not as cushioney, but that is to be expected, but also not too bad. Ran 2 miles after computrainer class this morning with them and they seem fine so far. I'll start with 2 or 3 mile runs with them, see how that goes, then up it to 6 or 7 and see how that feels.

If these are OK and no injuries or issues I'm gonna try a pair of the Brooks T6 Racers next. Crazy light.

I had new balance and I couldn't run in them, my knee started to hurt badly
so I got Ascis with gel cushions and they rock.

I only fit in Brooks and NB cuz of my wide feet. Nikes and Asics are too narrow.

Try Etonics. I was totally shocked when I was fit into them with my wide feet. I have been running in Etonic Japaras for a few years now and I love them. I didn't even realize until I was fit into them that Etonic made anything other than golf shoes.

Brooks is what I wear, I have a EEE width foot. Went to Naperville Running Company last summer and got fitted for some Brooks shoes. Amazing difference from the NB shoes I bought at Dick's years before.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I'm really happy with my Brooks Addiction. Feels way better than the wide shoe NB makes. I'll only try other brands if Brooks discontinues the Addiction. I hope never.

Trying a new lighter weight racing shoe for running

I've got Zoot ultra kanes and mizuno wave inspire. Not crazy light but adequate. Both are about dead though so I'm going to be looking for a new pair soon. I don't think I'll need any fancy crazy light shoes to administer the pain though!

I have a question, are you just going to use the race shoes for races, or train in them too I go thru shoes every 90 days, and you peeps run more than I do, won't it throw you off training in one shoe and switching to another for a race Will a race shoe be as durable as a standard shoe, ie not as light as a race shoe?

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.
