Hi, I'm Brandon. I have a running shoe obsession and addiction. I spend hours a day on websites and on review sites reading about the latest tech and upcoming releases. I run +-50km per week, and one of my favourite past times is going into shoe stores and testing salesmen on their knowledge of running shoes.


Lab tests and in-depth reviews

Adidas Adizero Pro
87
Great!

Adidas Adizero Pro review I really wanted the Adizero Pro to give the VaporFly, Endorphin Pro and Metaracer a run for their money but the Adizero Pro just feels like a regular racing flat with a tad m[…]

Nike React Miler
88
Great!

Nike React Miler review If you’re a runner looking for a well-built shoe for long distances or recovery runs, get the React Miler. The Miler has a comfortable upper with a superb foot lockdown.[…]

Nike CruzrOne
75
Bad!

Nike CruzrOne review The CruzrOne is a shoe designed for running slowly, very slowly. That’s what the designer of the shoe, Tinker Hatfield explained in a behind-the-design press release video.[…]

Asics Gel Nimbus Lite
89
Great!

Asics Gel Nimbus Lite review The Nimbus Lite is the best version of the Nimbus to date and is finally deserving of the Nimbus badge. It has a comfortable upper and a midsole, which is cushioned, light[…]

Adidas SL20
89
Great!

Great!

Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit review The Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit is a max cushioned shoe capable of many long, slow miles. It's a lot lighter than other max cushioned shoes such as the Ultra[…]

New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v10
90
Superb!

New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v10 review The 1080 v10 is a fantastic do-it-all shoe. The problem is that the 1080 is not supposed to be that. The 1080 is supposed to be a max cushioned long-distance cru[…]

Nike Joyride Dual Run
87
Great!

Nike Joyride Dual Run review The Joyride Dual Run is a much better running shoe than the Joyride Run Flyknit. The Dual Run can easily fit into my running shoe rotation as a daily trainer. Upper hits a[…]

Saucony Triumph 17
92
Superb!

Saucony Triumph 17 review I'm just going to say this now. The Saucony Triumph 17 is the best shoe I've ever run in. The Triumph 17 is everything I've ever wanted in a long-distance cruiser. It has a p[…]

Nike Joyride Run Flyknit
85
Great!

Nike Joyride Run Flyknit review Is this shoe worth $180? Definitely not. I can’t recommend this shoe to anyone other than someone looking for a super soft, slow shoe to run in. While the Joyride[…]

New Balance FuelCell Propel
91
Superb!

New Balance FuelCell Propel review I now finally have a shoe that fills the Vomero-sized hole in my shoe rotation. If you really want to feel like you are running on clouds, get the New Balance Propel[…]

Hoka One One Clifton 6
89
Great!

Hoka One One Clifton 6 review I now understand why the Clifton is such a popular line in the Hoka range, and I am a big fan. The Clifton 6 ticks all the long-distance boxes, being light, cushioned, st[…]

Asics Gel Cumulus 21
90
Superb!

Asics Gel Cumulus 21 review The Cumulus 21 is a beefy workhorse capable of eating up many road miles. I had my reservations with Asics before running in the Cumulus 21 but now I understand why so many[…]

Nike Odyssey React Flyknit 2
86
Great!

Nike Odyssey React Flyknit 2 review Since its release, the Odyssey React has always lived in the shadow of its big brother, the Epic React. Being cheaper and only partially Flyknit, many view it as a[…]
