Thought I'd ask but I'm looking for a road shoe with following characteristics.... (just on the off chance someone has solved the same question :-) )
- light 250g/275g ish for a size 8
- forefoot flex - bendy at the forefoot - so I can skip lightly along the roads
- ok cushioning at the forefoot - suit up to marathon distance - when the distance slows me and I start to slap the floor
- suit a natural/forefoot style - 3 or 4mm drop .. or less
I've tried Saucony Kinvara (great but not quite enuff forefoot cushioning for marathon); My latest are Newton Gravity (speedy PB material and great for short distances but not really for 10 miles plus). Love my Peregrine's for off road.
Considered Altras (not flexible enough?); Hoka's (again not flexible enough and "too" cushioned?)
Saucony Freedoms sound possible but ever so expensive!
