Surprisingly warm day. More shoe adjustments (looser is better) + LiveTrack testing (love that) + making sure the Camelbak still works (it does) + dimethicone cream test (slippery).

Summer Trail Shoe Purchase & Review Update

I really liked the new shoes I bought this summer (New Balance MT10v2 Minimus & Nike Zoom Streak LT2). They both performed superbly, and were incredibly light and comfortable. Fit for my foot was perfect with both.

Unfortunately, I just sent both new pairs back to for refund after neither pair managed to get me over 50 miles without starting to fall apart.

The sole from the upper for the NBs, and the middle layer (the white bit) decomposing (or something) and allowing the bottom layer (the black bit) to 'pull' the white layer apart on the Nikes. Wow. While I'm not easy on shoes, I've got hundreds of miles on all of my other shoes with no issues. I suppose it's an issue of 'get what you pay for'.

So: cheap shoe fail. Happily, the 90-day-return policy is awesome. Stuffed the shoes into a box, free return, got a store credit 'gift card', ordered a pair of new Inov-8 Trailroc 245s, should be here by Friday at the latest. I predict satisfaction with this purchase, but I'll review.

12 PM

Running 37:29 [1] 4.1 mi (9:09 / mi) +197ft 8:45 / mi
weight:160.4lbs shoes: Adidas adiZero Hagio 2

Perfect day. Could have kept on going all day (mentally).
