I run in the Saucony Kinvara and preview pair of the Peregrines. Can I review these shoes? They are both what I would classify as transitional, useful moving from traditional trainers toward a minimal platform.
Otherwise all I can review are my bare feet, my rock climbing shoes, and my neoprene wetsuit boots. And stocking feet too.
And I bought my wife a pair of Saucony "classic" something or other from the discount shoe place. Those are retro track shoes, but they are super light and almost totally flat. 50 bucks. They fit in the rotation somewhere.
I guess it seems that minimal running and the mid-foot gait are rewarded by changing things up often. One of the greatest failings in my previous shoe mentality was the thinking that I only needed one pair of trainers, shoes that I would run in every day without variation.
Variety = good
I hope Toe Salad can help me find my first pair of zero drop shoes, but I would love to contribute on the way!
