I have been a Kinvara fan since v1, but version 4 was a bust due to a poor fit in the forefoot. Saucony remedied the issue in version 5 and my old favorite was back in top form (my Kinvara 5 review here). I love the Kinvara because it’s affordable, light, and provides a softish ride that is a great match for my stride. It’s not a shoe I’d choose for speed, but for me it’s the perfect shoe for long or easy miles. The only issue I had with the K5 was a hot spot under my big toe on the first few runs, but that [url=http://www.hijosdelvacio.es/Nike-Air-Max-90-Mujer-Negras-c-1_20.html]Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Negras[/url] seemed to alleviate with further use. Great shoe, and glad to see it return to my top shoe list! Purchase at Running Warehouse or Wiggle (UK).
I’d call the Asics Hyper Speed 6 the best buy of the year (my review here). At an MSRP of $85 it’s quite a bargain, and can be found [url=http://www.joomlas.co.uk/nike-roshe-run-c-48/nike-roshe-run-womens-c-48_50/]Nike Roshe Run Womens[/url] on-line much cheaper at a variety of retailers (I like inexpensive shoes!). In my Hyper Speed 6 review I ranked it right up there with the New Balance 1400v2 and adidas adios Boost, and I think those are both reasonable comparisons. The Hyperspeed has a softish heel, firm forefoot, [url=http://www.paardreizen.nl/Nike-Air-Max-90-Heren-c-22_24.html]Nike Air Max 90 Heren[/url] and weighs in at under 6oz – great shoe for speedy runs where you want a bit more cushion than a typical flat will provide. The Hyper Speed would be ideal as a half-marathon racer for me, and might even work for a full. I also love the upper of the shoe, and it offers a roomy forefoot fit for a racing shoe. If I was pressed to choose my all-around top road shoe of the year, this might be it. Purchase at Running Warehouse or Wiggle (UK).
Given that the GoRun 4 is a pretty significant update from top to bottom (my review here), I was worried that Skechers [url=http://www.joomlas.co.uk/nike-air-max-tavas-c-27/nike-air-max-tavas-womens-c-27_29/]Nike Air Max Tavas Womens[/url] might ruin a shoe that I loved. Instead, they produced what is in my opinion the best version of the shoe to date, and I fell in love with the GoRun 4 on my first run in it. Softish sole, good flexibility, and a perfect fit for my foot – pretty much ticked all of my boxes. [url=http://www.alainhemet.fr/nike-air-presto-c-57/nike-air-presto-femme-c-57_58/]Nike Air Presto Femme[/url] I could do without the Quick-Fit portal on the heel tab, and the upper mesh isn’t the most breathable, but in all other respects the GR4 is a great match for me. And like the Kinvara and Hyperspeed above, the GR4 is affordable at an MSRP of $100 (notice a trend here?). Purchase at Running Warehouse or Shoebuy.
The Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit might be the best Nike Free shoe I have worn (my review here). The Flyknit upper is extremely comfortable, sole flexibilty is fantastic (as with all Free shoes), the forefoot is nice and wide, and the ride is nicely cushioned. [url=http://www.hijosdelvacio.es/Nike-Air-Max-90-Hombre-c-1_17.html]Nike Air Max 90 Hombre[/url] My only real problem with the shoe is that I get a bit of pressure on top of my foot with extended wear (my high volume foot acting up again!). It’s generally not a problem while running, moreso when I wear them all day casually (which I do quite often). Great shoe for easy [url=http://www.paardreizen.nl/Nike-Blazer-Dames-c-76_77.html]Nike Blazer Dames[/url] runs. Purchase at Running Warehouse or Wiggle (UK).
