Hi all - I am looking to move in to more minimilist running and have just bought a pair of the vivobraefoot range. However I also need a new pair of everyday/gym trainers that I can also use for running (during both transitioning from normal to minimilist running and also for running longer distances (as I plan to run a couple of marathons before the end of the year and do not want to do these in the vivobarefoot shoes). SO - basically I am torn between buying the Saucony ProGrid Mirage or Brooks Ghost 4 as this pair.
DOes anyone have any experience/recommendations on this front?
Any help very VERY much appreciated! I am lost!
I haven't tried the Brooks Ghost 4 but I love the Saucony ProGrid Mirage. I am a forefront runner and they have plenty forefoot cushioning to stop the burning balls of feet pain I used to get when wearing more supportive/heel cushioned shoes. They are pretty light and I have narrow feet and they fit well. Maybe worth going and trying both out on a treadmill at one of the running stores.
I really am tempted to try the Mirage's, I currently run in Guide 4's but I am a little bit worried that I won't adjust to the lower heel to toe drop.
Guess there's only one way to find out! will get a pair at the end of the month and see how I go.
Hi all thank you for your help!
I have now got my Mirage 2's, only done a 4 and a 5 mile run in the so far but tey feel great. Nice and light, the front does feel snug but not uncomfortable.
Definitely a different feel to running in my old Guide 4's and will take a little bit of getting used to. I am very happy with them so far.
