With your comments about static airmaxrun.uk drop and heel cushion/softness, would you then reasonably assume that zero-drop shoes could realistically be negative drop? Or am I over-thinking that?
I think you and I share the belief that people are variable and have variable needs, and that varying training, surfaces, etc. is probably as important if not more important than what they put on their feet (which probably should be varied as well). I¡¯d still pretty much have the same position I outlined in my book, which was written late 2010 through 2011 ¨C no point in dogmatic approaches, variation is good, find what works for you.
I wonder why women¡¯s shoes have higher heel-to-toe drops, especially when the angle is probably steeper due to women¡¯s smaller feet. Do you think running shoe companies construct shoes this way since many women wear high heels when not running? Or i Nike Air Max 2015 cheap sale s there some anatomical reason that women should have a higher heel-to-toe drop in running shoes?
Well thats why I put ¡°minimalistic¡± in quotations¡ As for cushioning just because a shoe has a higher profile doesn¡¯t mean its going to be mushy because there are many different types of foam and cushioning like air bags¡ even if some shoes are mushy. In regards to trail running, more and more people are preferring shoes like hokas because since there is more cushioning which also gives you more protection from rocks and uneven surfaces. Some people like ground feel and some don¡¯t. I like to have choices, and everyone should have a right to have whatever kind of shoe they want to wear.
Needless to say, I declined the offer of a trial pair, knowing that this shoe is nearly the polar opposite of what I look for in a running shoe. I actually kind of like the way it looks, but there¡¯s simply way too much heel for my taste, it¡¯s too heavy, too expensive ($200!!!), and I knew without even running in it that it would mess with my gait. My general policy is to decline any shoe that I would not consider buying myself as I don¡¯t think I would be the right person t Nike Air Max 90 cheap uk o review such a shoe, nor would I want to run any significant number of miles in them.
Yves makes some interesting points Pete!!.. well I remember our exchanges from 5 years ago! But time and experiences bring evolution, and nothing is static. My only comment would be in relation to your video.. for a not very big guy, you sure do seem to have a heavy footfall.. assuming that is you in the vid.. enough to make the treadmill shake.. and quite a pronounced double float fo Nike Flyknit Air Max cheap sale r what appears to be a relatively slow belt speed.. thoughts?
