  • PERFECT CUSHION AND GROUND FEEL FOR A HALF!

    Wore these Zante v4 out the box around the house for one day before running a Half Marathon in them. I Love them! I needed something that was more cushioned to last me the whole 13.1 miles, and the Zante v4 were perfect. I have narrow feet but I like a bit wider toebox. These shoes are pretty narrow from toe to heel. I was nervous about the toebox being too narrow for the Half, but because of the upper flexibility, my toes were very comfy. I had no issues or blisters or sore spots anywhere. It was a very cold race, and the upper is breathable, so even with wool socks on, my toes/feet were super cold. Normally weather down here is warm, so they are perfect for that. Foot strike was cushioned but I could still feel the ground and its variances. I love the snug feeling around the mid foot. Snug but not too tight. Great racing and fast paced workout shoe with cushion and responsiveness.

  • GREAT STABILITY IN THE VONGO 2

    " I have run in the 1260 series previously, but decided to give the Fresh Foam Vongo v2's a try for a little variation in my shoe rotation. The Vongo v2 is a very soft shoe, but it's not mushy. I need a little support because I over pronate, but I don't need the heavy support of say a 990. Have logged about 60 miles on my first pair and am about to order another because I really like how they feel. The Vongo v2's deliver a soft ride with just the right amount of stability."

Total Miles Run




In October, we partnered with New Balance, by forming a Strava group to help us run 2,777+ miles across the United States: From NYC to LA (and then back!). New Balance is an iconic American brand, and we wanted to celebrate their heritage by seeing how many times we could run across the country together.

By you contibuting your runs, we completed 7 laps across the continental United States, and then some! We gave away a pair of New Balance shoes to a lucky participant for each lap we completed. A big thank you goes out to everyone who contributed their runs, and made this effort such a success. Our Strava group is still alive and active, so join us as we continue to Run Across America!




How are we doing?
Check out our weekly stats below to see how far, how long, and how high up our members are running across the country this week. Join the group and get involved, and see yourself in the feed on our page. Invite your friends to help them reach their goals!



 

New Balance Running Shoes

Born and bred in America is important to New Balance, with a large chunk of their footwear lines being manufactured here in the USA. They remain as equally committed to advancing running technology as maintaining their heritage.

When New Balance was founded in 1906 in Boston, MA, the original design was inspired by the perfect 3-point balance of a chicken’s foot. Fast-forward 111 years and we find New Balance’s forward-thinking technology has accelerated, providing a plethora of technologies, suited for a multitude of diverse runners. Some of the most conversed New Balance technologies are the “Fresh Foam” and “REVlite” midsoles.
