Needing New Running Shoes. Advice Please

Hi,

I’m new to this site having had a replacement in October 2018.

My recovery has been relatively smooth, mainly due to cycling and swimming, but it is now time to pick up my running mileage and I’ve targeted a half marathon in September 2020.

The question now is “what shoe is best”?  I’ve done my last two marathons (2016 and 2017) in Triumph ISOs (8mm drop), but I think it might be time to go for a more cushioned shoe (though I can discount the New Nikes down to price and the fact that I’ve never found a shoe from them that fits).

Any and all advice is welcome.

Thanks,

Birdy

      Hi Birdy. My go to shoe has been the Hoka Clifton. Super Light and super cushioned. Wishing you the best!

      Hi Birdy, I am just six weeks post-THP, so I haven’t run yet, but over the last several years I’ve very much enjoyed several models by Hoka One One, in particular, the Clifton. I plan to use them again when I return to running. –Richard

      Thanks for the replies. I eventually went for the Bondi and they are performing well. Certainly noticing that the day after a run is much easier than it used to be.
