Shoe Suggestions Please (Read 120 times)

Jan26.2


    I'm looking for a light stability shoe with a wide toe box. I run in Altra Provisioness for my shorter runs, but am not quite ready to run in them for longer distances. The Nike Lunarglide 3s have worked well for me, but I believe the 4s have a narrower toe box. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Try the LunarGlide 4 anyway.  I was skeptical of the tight fit when I first tried them on, coming from Lunarglide 2, but I have not had any problems with them yet.

        I wear the Saucony Progrid Mirage 2 (I wore version 1 as well). They are relatively light, with a little bit of stability. Toe box is about average, though. It's sort of a transition shoe towards minimalist.

          I have a pretty wide foot and ran in the Lunarglide 4 for and while.  I had zero problems with the toe box and absolutely loved the shoes.  Unfortunately, they ended up giving me a blister on the bottom of my foot so I had to switch, but I say definitely give them a shot!

          In it for the long run..

            Altra Torin has more cushioning than Provisioness and is fine for long runs.

              I have a pair of Asics GelNeo33s and I like them.

                If the LunarGlide has been a shoe thats working well for you.. then why the heck do you want to go to a Altra?

                  sethh - That's a good question. I guess I got caught up in all the "zero drop is best" hype and decided to check it out. The Altras are ok, but probably not the shoe nirvana I was looking for.

                   

                  Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I think I'll give the Lunarglide 4s a shot.

                    Yea... there is a lot of that fiction going around.
