  • I take a 11.5 in all HOKA shoes and wear a 11.5 in the Olympus and it fits perfectly
  • I have put over 500 miles on two pair of Conquest.  Liked the first so well I got another.  Yeah the speed laces are not the best and one of my pair they began to come apart so I replaced them with the Salomon quick lace system and that made all the…
  • 2mm drop (27 mm and 25mm) and 8.9 oz in a size 9.  Not bad huh
  • I just got the Salomon Fellraiser 6mm drop, great fit, outstanding cushioning and really a great tread pattern for the type of running you described.  I really like it as it is a great shoe that goes from the tarmac to trail well.  Price is good too…
  • I really like the virrata which works for me and is the first zero drop shoe that I can wear for long runs.
  • I have over 160 miles on my original pair and the wear appears normal to me.  I think I can get around 300 miles at least which is about normal for me.
  • Have you considered ART (active release technique)?  Just had a pulled hamstring and my ART specialist found two huge adhesion's (scarred muscle tissue) got them out and the hamstring recovered quickly.  I know I would not be running today with ART.…
  • ok I was not a fan of either zero drop shoes (tried Altra, Skora, and the Pure Drift all a no go IMO).  Also not a big fan of the Kinvara 3.  So trying this shoe was a bit of a chance for me.  I was surprised by the width of the toe box (wider than …
  • Darn I was hoping to try these but with the toe box width NOT wide this is a no go for me.  The Kinvara toe box was a bit snug on me so this will not work. Thanks for the mini review.
  • Peter had no experience with the previous editions.  Frankly, I did not expect much and was really surprised by the toe box width and was not as narrow as some other Nike racers.  The 5 mm drop also surprised me as well.  I am really liking this sho…
  • The Ultra Sense and the original Sense are more flexible than the Mantra.  That is not to say the Mantra is rigid by any means just not quite as flexible as the Sense.  Hard to compare height wise as all of my shoes are either zero drop or 4mm drop.…
  • They do have a 6mm drop but don't feel built up.  I have done three runs in them now (all road trail is tomorrow) and I really like them.  The feel is different from the Ultra sense ( I think better as the sense is a racing shoe not a training shoe)…
  • Pete great idea of switching the insole on the drift I will try that today and see if it helps any.
  • It could be also the cushioning on the shoe is gone.  Pure Flows, at least the original version, only get about 300-350 miles of wear before they are shot.  I have noticed it and so have a couple of other Flow wearers.  Perhaps a new pair in the lar…
  • Interesting I have the indentation on the left shoe and not the right.  However, no issues with the indentation.  Have about 50 miles on them now.  They really are not made for racing or fast training as I thought they were.
  • Another update  on the Sense Ultra--I finally got a chance to do some long (at least for me) trail runs (eight and ten mile) on the same trail used with the original Sense shoe.  The Ultra had better grip and traction than the original and also prot…
  • I have over 150 miles on my Flow 2s with no apparent wear on the sole.  On the original model Flow I got about 350 miles.  I hope the new ones get better mileage.
  • Sense Ultra Update--Initial thoughts:  Every have one of those days that everything goes well.  Well that occurred today.  Two new shoes showed up on my doorstep the new Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra and the Brooks Pure Drift (another post on this one).…
  • Today I put on my 100th mile in the Pure Flow 2s.  I like them today as much as when I did my first run in them on 5 Dec.  There does not appear any appreciable wear on the outsole, however, glad that Santa has another pair under the tree.  This sho…
  • Pete, Thanks in fact there is a drop off location very close to where I live.  Looks like a great cause.  Seven pairs on their way.
