My Next Running Shoe

My next running shoe started with this IG post. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Bryan Hinkle (@duke4005) Finding this shoe wasn’t that straightforward since it’s not widely available. It was sold out on Brooks, and Dicks Sporting Goods would charge shipping to Hawaii. But a Google search found this available on […]

Rona Runs: Infinity React

To past the time and maintain some fitness, I’ve been running with the kids. Shorter distances with some walking but several times a week. So far, wearing the Nike Infinity Reacts I cannot complain. No pain even though more (but shorter) outings.

The Nike Joyride Gives Me No Joy

Sadly, Nike’s newest runner featuring its bouncy beaded Joyride does not bring me joy. I ordered a pair of the Joyride Run Flyknit with my member access, and I even went a half size up based on early reviews by Foamer and Jami. They do look awesome.   But when I tried on my Joyride, […]

A Morning of Stress

Bottom line: I didn’t get a pair of the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 that released on Nike SNKRS. I was there, and I was ready with three phones and three accounts. But I got hit with error after error just trying to navigate the purchasing process. Apple Pay didn’t register. I think I mistyped […]

Dead Plantronics Backbeat Fit

Well, this ain’t good. I had been enjoying my Plantronics Backbeat Fit earphones during my runs, but now they don’t turn on. The battery will charge (the LED shows the charging progress), but pushing the power button does nothing. Sadly, this seems to be a recurring problems based on other complaints. I don’t remember exactly […]

My Second iPhone 7 Accessory Purchased

So I didn’t think the missing headphone jack of the iPhone 7 was going to be a big thing. Apple does include a Lightning to minijack adapter with the iPhone 7. Even then, I’m looking at getting Griffin’s iTrip Clip. At $20, this small device “bluetooth-ifies” regular headphones. Sure you gotta charge it, but this […]

Run Run Hoka One One

Took my new, discounted Hoka One One Mafate Speed for a test run where I learned a thing or two about this running shoe. Like I mentioned before, I only recently learned of the Hoka line and its super cushioned ride. I began to see this brand more in the mainstream, even sold at Nordstrom […]

Back to the Structures

Not so long ago, I declared Nike’s LunarEclipse my running shoe of choice. That didn’t last long. After a painful stint with Nike LunarGlide 4 and seeing parallels with the latest LunarEclipse 4, I went with the Zoom Structure 17. Here’s the longer story… The Zoom Structures, LunarEclipses, and LunarGlides are part of Nike’s stability […]

Nike Zoom Wildhorse Reviewed

I submitted my mini review to Zappos for my recent purchase of the Nike Zoom Wildhorse, and it goes like this: Lightweight and great looking but very snug. After a few wears and runs, the shoe still feels tight. It’s okay for short runs, but I’m not sure if the snugness will affect longer runs. […]

Learning About Heel-Toe Drop for Shoes

With Nike’s recent Terra trail running line, the Swoosh is emphasizing the 4 mm differential between the toe and heel. I’ve never seen this type of detail before in typical Nike product information. So what’s with this? Here is some useful information I found on this subject. Heel-Toe Drop or Offset: What Does it Mean […]

Forget the Fear, It’s About the Trail

As in sports, you need to have a short memory. Win or lose, forget about it and move on to the next challenge. So I lost out on getting an Air Jordan Fear pack shoe, but that’s so this morning. I’ve already forgotten about the fear and moved on to a next potential win with […]
