Pierre Meslet – ultrarunner, UTMB conqueror and MdeS top ten finisher (2021), is the very man to put these top end shoes to the test. Fast on his feet, he demands endurance, comfort, power and rebound, so what was his verdict?
Fast shoes showed up at the track today in #barnelms alongside a big family of hungry geese.
The idea was to test (very un-scientifically) and compare (subjectively obviously) 2 new shoes by Saucony, versus 2 shoes I know well and have been using for several months, the Hoka Carbon X (663km) and the Nike Alphafly Next% (288km) .
The Endorphin Speed 3 is extremely light and that was a great surprise.”
4 x 400m at similar Rate of Perceived Effort (45″ jog) with each pair of shoes.
Started with the new Saucony Tempus (1), then Hoka Carbon X (2), Saucony Endorphin Speed 3 (3) and finished with Nike Alphafly Next% (4)
Custom Insoles are a must
