So it was time to say goodbye to my favorite running shoes so far, my Asics Gel Lyte33 v3 shoes served me well for over 400 miles. But it was time to retire them. Unfortunately they no longer are making them, so I had to hunt for a new shoe. I went through 3 different pairs that I returned because either they were to narrow, too tight, arch was weird, etc. Finally I came across the Adidas Ultraboost ST. These are super cushioned, nice wide toebox (which I love) and the toe box is a nice mesh. So far I have run 3 different distances in these (4, 6, & 7miles), and I only have one complaint. These weigh 11.5 ounces and the shoes I came from weighed 6.8 ounces. It is a noticeable difference in weight and I can definitely feel it weighing my feet down especially when I get into the "tired" zone. This is the reason why this post is titled V1. I have another option coming soon and will see if they can fit into the rotation.
