New Balance Zante Pursuit. 8.0 oz.
The new Zante Pursuit is a great option for a lightweight, quick trainer and for the track athlete. It’s low to the ground, it has the NB crystallized sole for a responsive feel against the modern track surfaces. Another strong call out on the Pursuit is the ‘high toe spring’. That refers to the profile under ball of foot. It’s curved, yes? That design is key to a fast turnover feel. NB designers were thinking like champs.
Asics Nimbus 21. 11.4 oz
Version 21 is nicely updated with a more refined sole pattern and a very smart update to the mesh upper. All of this adds up to a refinement of what we feel is one of the benchmarks of the premium cushion shoe. So much so, we believe the phrase ‘premium cushion’ was coined with the Nimbus. Durable, soft, well-fitting…don’t call it a comeback…welcome back Nimbus!
Hoka One One Mach II. 8.5 oz
Feather light, unrestricted mesh upper and a mid-sole configuration that puts a firmer compound in the forefoot and a tad softer in the heel. Hoka One One are pretty tough shoes so don’t let the lightweight fool you into thinking this is a wimpy throw away. It’s actually a pretty versatile package which might come in handy for the 13.1 and 26.2 crowd who are looking for a speed advantage. Yes, it’s that versatile.
Brooks Glycerin 17. 11.0 oz
Nice upgrade from previous, the newest Glycerin feels very plush. Last year, speaking candidly, the Glycerin didn’t exactly distinguish itself from the Ghost. That might speak more as a compliment to the Ghost but still, Glycerin has the obligation of being more premium. Thankfully Brooks recognized that as well and we are pleased to report the 2019 Version 17 delivers as promised. The fit is clean, the cushion is plush. For the $30 upgrade verses the Ghost, don’t be intimidated. Throw it on. You might be inspired to go a little further, a little faster.
Nike Vomero 14. 11.0 oz
Never underestimate the world’s number one sport shoe company. Never. When Nike put their minds to something, get out of the way. It’s game on. The new Vomero is exceptional. What a package! The Zoom Air mid-sole has a very lively feel, the upper fits precisely by virtue of the Fly Wire and a heel lining that grips beautifully around the narrow part of your heel. The Vomero 14 is quite an impressive option in the premium cushion category. All-in-all, at $139.99 it’s a heck of a deal.
Saucony Kinvara 10. 8.8 oz
Kinvara Nation rejoice! If that’s you, we are pleased to report the new Kinvara 10 has characteristics of the Version 3. According to the Nation, that was the jam. If you aren’t exactly a member of the Nation, don’t give that little fun fact any more credit than it deserves. The nitty gritty of Kinvara 10 is refine-refine-refine. Gone is the overly tapered toe from last year and gone is the imprecise heel feel. Kinvara 10 now has a unique heel hold design on the interior and price held at $110. Rejoice Nation. Rejoice.
