      The Wrong Team

        Select colors of Saucony Fastwitch 8's - both men's & women's, in most all sizes - are down to $56.88 at Running Warehouse.

         

        For women, the coral/citron color is on sale:

        For men, it's the black/citron color:

        I wear these, so a couple notes:

         

        1. Low heel drop - 4 mm - so go easy at first if you have AT/PF issues.

        2. I wear out the outer R heel edge outsole a bit fast and so end up patching w/Shoe Goo.

          Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

           

          And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.

            Those are zoom flys, not Vapor fly 4%.  You can distinguish by the fly wire on the side, which the 4% doesn't have.

             

            If it looks too good to be true....

             

             

             

            Yeah, I don't know Nike shoes. There's a link on the sidebar to ANOTHER shoe labeled the Vapor Fly 4% that looks different...maybe that's the $300 one. They are $50-70.

                  11 June 2018:

                   

                  Zappos (www.zappos.com) is having a sale, and I found men's adidas adizero tempo 9s for 71.95 (link below). You might check to see if any shoe you like is on sale, too. FWIW, the women's model wasn't on sale, so I am not sure how models are chosen. --Thanks, Christine

                        My son loves the new Brooks Adrenaline but no online deals this year on that one can't beat buying it from a local running store with 20% off as a sponsor of his college where he runs track & xc.

                              Hoka is discontinuing their Napali and Napali ATR shoes.

                              Available only through Running Warehouse.

                               

                              $75, free shipping

                               

                              There are links to Napali reviews, including Ginger Runner . But basically the road version is the Clifton 3 with a lighter, wider upper and the ATR version is the Challenger 3 with a lighter, wider upper. By "wider" in Hoka-speak, it means close to medium. I bought the ATRs, and I was tempted to send them back because I could barely get my foot inside with the laces all the way loose and flopping (correct size and length shoe). But, I ran a little on our treadmill with them and they weren't as bad as I thought they might be. I did a 5-miler in the dirt with them and they're fine. Then I remembered all my Challengers and Stinson ATRs were also incredibly tight when I first tried them on, but acceptable on runs, and actually stretch a bit with use.

                               

                              Keep in mind that both of these shoes are almost 2oz (about 20%) lighter than current Clifton and Challenger with the same out and mid soles, a wider and more breathable upper, so in my mind are actually better shoes...
