Running, Shoes, Gear, and Ramblings from a Late-Adopter
Tuesday, January 24, 2012
First try in Brooks Launch today running 1200 meter intervals, and they rise to the top of the stable. This shoe seems to hit the sweet spot in a number of ways--it's either a racing flat on the heavy side or a cushion trainer on the light side; at 9.5 mm stack height differential, the heel is set lower than most traditional trainers, but is higher than any minimalist shoes; and while it can clearly handle a heel-striker's needs, it rolls forward smoothly from a midfoot strike and feels fast. A full review with photos coming soon.
