So you want to be quicker?
You Pose or Chi run and cant find a shoe thats light,flexible or low heeled enough, then try these, they have no support and as a mid or forefoot runner you dont need any,they are ch Continue reading...
A great little racing shoe but I wouldn't use it for distances over 10K.
saucony need to give a little more consideration to the design and inclusion of ankle support to this shoe, then it will be a perfect r Continue reading...

Would like to road race in racing flats and stick to cushioned shoes for training.
But can't find a shoe description that says 'racing flats'.
Can someone please give me a couple of models to choose from.
Thanks.

Try either the Saucony Fastwitch Speed or Fastwitch Endurance if you pronate a little. Both great shoes.

Tsk, Nike all the way for this one....Nike Mayfly or Vaporfly are both good, but admittedly, I prefer the first - Mayfly.

However I'm yet to try other models, but would be tempted to go with Asics in future, because they'll probably last longer...

Are the Saucony Fastwitches suitable for Marathon distance. I'm a 12.5 stone neutral runner (fairly efficient running style). I'm looking at <3hr so I'm looking to use a lightweight shoe.

One of my favourite make of racing shoes were.....................the Nike Spiridon Gold !

There's a blast from the past eh !!

I wore Fastwitch in the FLM this year.  I'm a great believer in flats - I do nearly all my training in flats now, as I always seem to get injured in ordinary training shoes, which are a bit like diving boots.

I'm a fan of training in flats.

I love Nike Air Zoom Streak Ekiden and Spectrum Plus, but you can't get them anymore and the pairs I have are not much longer for this world.

Nike Vaporfly, I'm not too keen on, although I did run my last marathon in them.

Tried some Asics Gel Hyperspeed 2 on the other day and quite like the feel of them, could very well be my next shoe.

Asics DS racer or the Asics DS racer!

Great race shoe, I've used them up to the half marathon distance and they are perfect.

I've been using "Paula's" shoes. Nike zoom marathoner. They have a little more about them than the basic skin-flat and a pair of laces approach. But quite light, some arch support and light cushion.

The advantage over the Asics DS Racers being that they actually stick to the road when it's wet. In fact, they are still grippy on wet white lines and manhole covers, something that Asics shoes don't do even in the dry.
