Saucony Zealot IOS 2, $130

SauconyZealot2.jpg

"Every season the Saucony line upgrades a few more styles to its Everun foam and the Zealot is the latest to receive this bump up. The upper benefits from use of the ISO Fit system, a cage-like lacing system that allows a more supportive and conforming midfoot fit. Its proven effectiveness affords a fit missing from a traditional setup."

NBVazeePace2.jpg

"The Vazee Pace took its name from a variant of the French "let's go," but this time the question is, how do you say "go faster?" The Vazee Pace 2 picks right up where the debut version left off. As is true with most of the industry, the upper features a smooth interior and no-sew overlays that are flexible and sueded."

Brooks Ghost 9, $120

BrooksGhost9.jpg"Nine seasons ago, the Ghost replaced the Radius 7 as Brooks' Neutral running mainstay. Since that time, it's frequently been a top contender in the Neutral category. That's the case this year, too. The upper features a combination of stiffer engineered mesh for support, plus soft mesh and linings for comfort, both layers working together to move moisture away from the foot."

adidas Vengeful Boost, $100, Fall 2016 Motion Stabilizing Award winner

adidasVengefulBoost.jpg

"The Vengeful Boost is the third new running shoe from adidas in as many seasons. Its siblings, the UltraBoost and UltraBoost ST, aimed at the top tier of the market, but here the goal was to protect the runner and his or her wallet. The upper is a uniform open mesh, covered with a soft and pliable lining that feels nice and gentle against the foot."

This is the review for the Altra Instinct 4.0 !

We are posting all of the reviews of training footwear by Cregg Weinmann, the long time footwear review editor for the RunningNetwork on @runblogrun. His reviews at www.runningproductreviews.com are a great resource, and we encourage you to read them. They are a great resource to help you find the right shoe for you!

As many are putting their miles in this summer for fall marathons, summer trail races and fall cross country races, it is imperitive that you have the right training shoes.

We are partisan local running stores supporters: if you want the best running shoes, we suggest you a) go to running store at end of day, b) take a pair of clean socks and c) try on 4-6 pairs of training shoes or spikes. Price is only part of the picture, if you want the best running shoe or track spike for your needs!

Altra Instinct 4.0, $110

Altra Instinct 4.0 $110.jpg"Altra debuted with the Instinct (and the women's Intuition) and receives an attentive update to its successful design. The upper is completely new, with an engineered mesh that adjusts well to the foot. The lining is smooth, offering support while snugging up comfortably."
