>Gears and Wears>RW Magazine Shoe Finder
Has anyone used the new RW magazine flow chart shoe finder? It is not online as far as I can tell, just in the magazine. It does seem to steer me to the mid range shoe which is what I use with no problems. Curious that pronation is not a factor. Thoughts?

I wondered ther same thing. I'm an overpronator and need shoes with some decent stability (Brooks Adrenaline and Mizuno Alchemys etc) and the flow chart doesn't really address that. I also like information about cushioning since I prefer a firmer feel.
Personally, I liked their old format better.
another reason why the RW stuff is just filler in the magazine.
And last fall, it recommended the Saucony Ride 5, but in the Summer Guide, it does not recommend the Ride 6 even though it is essentially unchanged.
I'm a RW subscriber, I do recognize most of the articles are rehashing old info, but sometimes I need to be reminded and besides, I like the columns and features.
...but I look at that flow chart in much the same way I look at my horoscope.
