¡°For a variety of reasons, I think the advantages of barefoot-style running diminish on trails. In particular the hillier, the rockier, and the longer the trail, the less advisable is a minimal shoe.
When Nike released the Peg 31 I had heard from fellow shoe geeks that they made the shoe a bit firmer, particularly under the forefoot. Given my experience with the Peg 29, I couldn¡¯t resist giving them a try ¨C a similar ride with a more stable forefoot might Nike Free Run 2 Womens UK cheap just do the trick. A few weeks ago I headed over to my local running store to try a pair on. They fit well and felt good underfoot, so I brought them home with me (Disclosure: these shoes were a personal purchase).
Really like your Blog! As a 54 year old 30+ year runner, I think it is great you are wise in your thinking. Everyone does have different needs. The key, I believe is, people learning what good form is, and working to put this into practice with their body. Good form will put you into proper position, no matter what your foot strike is, and tone down a really bad strike, IMO. I like Peg 30s, and don¡¯t like to go lower than 8mm, as I am not a naturally flexible person. I am a mid-heel striker like you too, will try 31s based on your review! :)
Pete i have tried the Nike Free 3 and the heel to toe differential is more than noticeable. Taking a look at the photo of the white part of the sole makes me think that the difference is more than 4mm (This differential is also reported in other sites, i don¡¯t blame you :)
I measured heel thickness at the center of the heel, and forefoo Nike Free Run 3 Mens UK cheap t thickness where the ball of the foot (i.e., metatarsal heads) would rest. The latter was accomplished by sliding the clamp arm through the laces between the tongue and the eyerow of the upper, so that no upper fabric was included in the measurement (this couldn¡¯t be done in the Vibram Fivefingers KSO¡¯s or Nike Sneakerboat, so I estimated the thickness of the forefoot fabric and subtracted it from the measured height). All measurements were taken on both the right and left shoes and averaged (measurements were remarakably consistent between side Nike Free Run 3 Womens UK Sale s on most shoes, giving me greater confidence in my data).
