Went to 3 stores and none of them carried CW-X or Skins. One of them had underarmour, but only in mens (do they come in womens?)
I ended up getting some calf compression sleeves. The moment I tried them on, the twinge in my Achilles vanished. I think we're set for tomorrow, and then I'll whine at hubby for some CW-x or Skins later
The saucony a4's are awesome shoes. They are racing flats technically but racing flats are minimalist in nature anyway. Everybody likes new shoes so if your looking for something besides vibram
I run my long runs in Nike frees because I mostly run on cement. It saves some poundig, plus They last a little longer than the a4s. The free runs took a turn for the worse this model year. The free 3.0s are still minimal but the free runs now Have more arch and a 9mm drop from heel to toe. The only thing still minimal about them is the flexibility. The 3.0s have a 4mm drop and little arch.
Vibrams have a 0 drop and I think new balance minimalist shoe has a 0 drop....and saucony just came out with a..... Hirachi??? I think. Its just like the vibrant only the toes are not seperate. Looks like a nice shoe
