Any good these days?
ET - was searching the web for racing shoe info and came upon one of your posts regarding the Equalon. I had the same dilema after wearing out my last pair this winter. The Equalon was the savior for my plantar faciaitis, and I tried Brooks Trance and imdiatley started having foot pain. Returned them.
70 Miles into a pair of Nike Lunar Eclipse 2 and so far so good. They felt a little wierd and stiff in spots at first, but that's gone away. They've been closest in "pillowiness" to the Equilons of anything I've run in, and they're lighter (3 oz. I think!). They feel fast. They do have a very different feel than any shoe I've run in due to thier unique construction, but I'm liking it. Eastbay has them for $70 right now as the LE3 is just coming out. If I still like them this much at 150 miles, I'm going to buy up a few pairs. Good luck!
I plumped for Brooks Adrenaline 12 in the end. They seem really comfy although I have had a tiny bit of PF type pain which I`ve iced. Up to about 9 miles LDR in them so far so we`ll see. I`ll bear your advice in mind.
I had Triax +12's as my first pair of running shoes - moved to Lunar Eclipse 2's and loved them more. Since moved via Lunar Glide +4's to Nike Free 3.0 v4's (for most runs now) and about to try Flyknit Lunar +1's. I still go back to the Lunar Eclipse's though when I fancy some more cushioning.
