We’ve shared most of the details behind the design and development of the Nike Epic React in our post, Meet the Nike Epic React Flyknit, late last month. This post is a quick review of what we think about the Epic React as a racing shoe.

The new Skechers GORun 6 is the latest generation in the Skechers GORun series of 4mm drop lightweight, cushioned neutral running shoes. Designed for speed, it’s responsive, supportive and lightning fast.
The new Xero Shoes TerraFlex is a high-performance, true minimalist trail running and hiking shoe. Ever since thousands of Xero Shoes fans have taken their first Xero Shoes running shoe, the Prio, out on the trail, they wanted more grip, more traction, and a bit more protection. Naturally, TerraFlex is born.
Altra's first true racing flat is here! The Vanish-R is extremely lightweight and flexible for a great fit and feel during your training and racing on the road or track.
Timeless Style and Comfort, the ZETONE and FER is interchangeable with multiple outfits and situations formal and casual. The FER and ZETONE are exactly the same, except for the presence or absence of a cap over the toe.
The Topo Athletic Runventure 2 is a lightly cushioned and responsive, zero drop trail runner. It uses the same high performance rubber sole found on the Terraventure, combined with a slightly thinner EVA midsole.
VIVOBAREFOOT has extended their Primus Collection with the new Primus Lux WP (winterproof). The Primus Lux WP has been re-designed for the colder months, with their premium wild hide leather uppers and stretchy airprene collar for a sock like fit.
Here are the latest WTGR Editors’ Choices for 2017 in six categories. As with every year end planning, some of the shoe models may be discontinued in the next few months to make space for updates or new models – so you can grab them when they go on sale.
Iffley Road continues its collaboration with Vivobarefoot from running apparel to running shoes with the launch of two distinct styles, the limited edition Primus Trail FG and Primus Lite.
The Daylite Hiker (Men's and Women's) is built on the same natural movement platform as their best-selling Prio while the Coalton (Men's only) is a casual Chukka boot that features a semi-distressed full-grain leather upper that gives each pair its own unique character.
We introduced readers to the VIVOBAREFOOT Swim Run Collection last month and had the opportunity to put in between 75-100 miles on each of the two models: Primus Trail Swimrun & Stealth II Swimrun.
I reviewed the original LEMs Nine2Five almost 4 years ago and have put in over a few hundred miles on them since then. I’ve worn the LEMs Nine2Five for over 8 hours for trade conferences or for work and decided to take it on my latest trip to Europe because of the changing weather and their rough cobblestone streets…
Named after eleven thousand feet of pure Utah peak ruggedness, the Lone Peak 3.0 is the latest version of the trail shoe that started it all for Altra. They've added additional protection to the upper for increased durability and protection when the trail starts to bite back.
The new Topo Athletic Fli-Lyte 2 offers a soft, highly-responsive ride, suitable for a variety of distances and speeds. The updated upper mesh offers additional structure and durability without affecting weight or breathability.
Guest Post by Dr. Mark Cucuzzella, Natural Running Center, Two Rivers Treads. I have been loving my Shamma Running Sandals well over 2 years now. I have run hundreds of miles of training runs, 2 marathons, and an Ultra. When traveling now the only footwear I bring is a pair of sandals unless it’s cold or I need something formal.
The VIVOBAREFOOT PRIMUS Lux is a heel-to-toe leather shoe designed for the kind of wild moves that only natural materials can provide. The ultra-minimalist VB PRIMUS Lux is built for the urban playground and lets your feet breathe naturally every step of the way.
The original fit and feel of the Minimus Trail 10 is back. With an upper made of flexible synthetic/mesh materials and a Vibram® outsole with flex grooves, this men's trail running shoe offers the traction and durability you need to run on rocky trails.
Altra King MT is made for runners who embrace mud, rocks and burly mountain climbs featuring a Vibram outsole with 6 mm lugs designed for optimal lateral breaking, medial gripping and maximum traction in wet, loose and rocky conditions.
