I have been using a pair of Nike Tailwind 2009 for the past couple of years:
they have worn well but its time to buy a new pair of shoes.
I have been drawn to the whole minimalist concept and its something I would at least like to try. I am a neutral runner and I more or less land on my mid foot. I tend to run about 20 - 25 miles a week recreationally - an average of 6 miles a run, sometimes 8 miles. Occasiaonlly I run longer 10 - 13 miles.
I have been concentrating on running faster and I can comfortably run 8 miles at a pace of 7mins30 a mile (or less). I am hoping I can improve on this still and a new pair of trainers might 'inspire' me
Anyway, I seem to have narrowed it down to the following choices and have been reading tonnes or reviews on each:
Nike Free 3.0 V4 (would go for the V3 if they were available anywhere)
Saucony Kinvara 3
Brook Pure Cadence/Flow/Connect?
And for some reason I have the Adidas Adizero Adios 2 on my list?
I'm not sure what to expect in terms of responses, basically hoping to rule out any of these or settle on one and try and find the best price. Price might be a consideration as £85 is a lot to spend on trainers and I would like something that would last a while (I have read that the Brooks Pures do not last long, where as the Nike Frees do).
Thanks for any comments/observations
