Asics has finally made their first foray into the “cushioned transitional” category with the Gel Lyte33. Given the example of the Saucony Kinvara and Brooks Pure lineup that they have had the opportunity to follow, it’s little surprise that the first attempt should be considered a success.
The Nike Lunarfly 3 and Saucony Kinvara 3 are mild updates from their predecessor versions, but they are enough to drive some changes in the preferences of this runner. Or maybe it’s actually the runner that’s changing.
The Saucony Progrid Kinvara 2 has been described by Pete Larson at Runblogger as a “gateway shoe” on your way to minimalism. But might it really be your last stop on your journey?
The Nike Lunarfly 2 is an outstanding selection for the runner requiring just a little bit of support and cushioning for longer runs but still desiring light weight for racing and speed work.
Another shoe shopping experience in the goal to run in less shoe leads to the opportunity to try on several performance training models and share some impressions, from which I settled on the Mizuno Wave Precision.
