Does anybody know of any long lasting but low profile racers ?

I've been wearing New Balance RC150's for the last couple of months and whilst they've been great they're worn through after only 180 miles.

I've been running pose/forefoot with the Mizuno Revolver. Done about 100K and they seem fine so far, hardly any signs of wear at all. Done road, track and trail in them.

What colour are your 150s, Tom.

My Red & White and Red & Black pairs are wearing fairly quickly (but nothing like 180M - more like 400+), while the Petrol & White ones just go on & on! Weird!

May look at the revolver at some point, but it looks higher off the ground than the 150s.

The revolver is higher, but only by 0.5 cm. My running style didn't seem to be different from running barefoot, so the heel size doesn't seem to be a problem with pose.

May try them when my 10+ pairs of 150s are dead... ;-)

shocking - pantman appearing on a thread relating to RC150s? you never know, he might start appearing on the pose thread soon?!

:-P

I'm not really a proper Pose runner, AJ, but I do love my 150s!

i'd noticed you had a slight affection for them...!

Mine 150s are getting worn, but what the heck? It's not like I've lost any cushioning or support,is it?

LOL - exactly! I have two pairs which are almost at the hole stage - planning to get new outsole put on the front and just keep going with them. How worn are yours, Tom?

The outsole has gone on the very outer edge of the heel but I'm not too worried about that. The main problem is a large hole under my big toe.

They're the fast feet ones - white with red trim, with red rubber outsole.

I thought about patching them up with something - araldite maybe ? Epoxy resin should be hard wearing but maybe a bit too hard.

£25 for 180 miles - that's more expensive than running my car !!

My red ones have worn quicker than the blue ones - weird!
Same place too - under big toe.

I'll let you know how the repairs go!
