For this topic I would say I am bias for sure towards Nike. As to the fact that I work here and love the company and the work that we do. But I also know how big of a topic shoes are when it comes to triathletes and what types should be worn. From the minimal 0 dro pshoes to the massive drops of 14+mm.
After finishing the Ironman Coeur d'Alene in 2016 I of course went back to the drawing board and looked at things that I could change to become a better athlete. In general, most improvements that I will get is from just training.
It was QA/QC testing day for drainage in my new Salomon Speedcross 4s. They were solid in a trail race last weekend. However, the course wasn’t wet or overly muddy, so a backyard drainage trial was in order before I rely on them in an obstacle race. The verdict? Thumbs up all around.
Running is also the culprit for A LOT of injuries for athletes and non-athletes alike. In fact, the number of injured runners a year is estimated to be about 80%, a number that has been consistently high since 1970. INSANE! Buuuutttttttt......I'm willing to bet we've all been there.
