These shoes felt squirrelly on my feet during even the first wearing. I swear I felt like they were constantly correcting my position on the ground. They seemed to be on constant autopilot. I don't know how to describe it any better than that. While they are light compared to the Max Motos I normally run in, they did not feel 'fast'. I can only describe this as defiance of Newton's Third Law of Motion--feeling as though I was losing something to the ground with every step rather than getting an equal and opposite reaction from the pavement.
I can say that I liked the upper on this shoe and it really fit my foot well. Nonetheless, these shoes will be relegated to easy runs and dog walks from now on.
I am happy to report that my search for a better shoe did come up with a winner--the Nike Pegasus. I have worn this shoe before and quite honestly don't know why I ever broke up with it. She's a sweet little ride, only a fraction of an ounce heavier than the Lunar Glide and I scored a pair for $34 (tax free) at the BX!
So, my feet are happy again and my search is over. You should have seen my cute little blue outfit I wore tonight to match my newest pair of fashionable running shoes. Tim Gunn would be so proud.
I just converted to the Pegasus from the Mizuno Wave Inspire and LOVE the Pegasus. It took me a while to find a pair of Nikes that work, but I am so happy with the Pegasus. Glad to hear your training is going spectacularly. Your blog is fantastic!ReplyDelete
