>Gears and Wears>Lightweight racer for pronated feet.
I am looking for a very lightweight racing shoe with some stability (less than 7 ounces). I have raced for years in the Saucony Fastwitch series. I really liked the 2,3, and 4, but the 5 is an ounce heavier and not as comfortable for me. Looking for an alternative. Thanks.
I have a pair of Brooks st 5, which provide a little bit of support, and they work fine for me. Of course shoes are very much a question of what feels good for you to run in... so they might not suit you.
I'll second the Brooks ST series - probably worth checking out at least and seeing how they work for you.
Hate to say but a shoe under 7 oz cannot take the weight to add any stability. Stability means adding a post or material which costs weight. Best bet is to find a very light weight orthotic to add. I use www.footdynamics.com running orthotics and they are unique and phenomenal and very very light. I take out the other insole and put these in. I don't think I gain too much weight by adding the custom orthotic.
Those who try, fail! Those who do what it takes to succeed, succeed!!
I will 3rd the Brooks st racers although I think they are closer to 8 ounces with the additional support.
