I had an awesome day today, got a lot accomplished, so i decided to go buy some new running shoes. I am a zero drop runner so i was expecting to come home with NB Minimus or Saucony Kinvara... But the salesperson showed me this new brand "Altra". He let me go outside to run a lap, they felt perfect. They felt closer to the road than NB and more durable and they didn't feel as clumbsy as Kinvara make my feet feel. The salesrep told me if you don't run zero balance, then it might take an extra 10-20 miles to get use to them, but if you do, stop by some place and try them. I got the Instinct road running/cross fit shoe
