Recently I decided to try the Saucony Kinvara 11. It’s been a few years since I’ve run in the shoe. In fact, the last time I consistently ran in, it was the Saucony Kinvara 7. Time flies.
I’ve tried on most versions, and the Saucony Kinvara 11 feels similar to the Kinvara 10. It does keep most of the same features as the Kinvara 10 as well. The ride is still fairly soft, but there have been some updates to the midsole and the upper.
While there are many brands of running socks, recently, I’ve appreciated Feetures. One of the most common questions I get is, do you need expensive running socks. Will good running socks help you run faster? Will you PR because you’re wearing good socks?
Recently I went down to Half Moon Bay and decided to hike the Purisima Creek to Grabtown Gulch to Borden Hatch Mill Loop. I’ve been to the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space before when we were out for vacation. I enjoyed it last time, so I thought it would be fun to come back.
Taste Cafe in Half Moon Bay borders on that is it a diner or not. There aren’t many diners in the Half Moon Bay area. It’s mostly open for breakfast and lunch and serves all of the typical diner staples. Recently, they started opening on Friday and Saturday for dinner too.
The New Balance More v2 is a high cushioned trainer from New Balance. While I tried on the original NB More, I didn’t run in it. It felt slightly bulky and cumbersome to me.
As the racing shoes get higher stack heights, it seems like the maximum cushioned trainers from various brands do. It isn’t a new concept, and Hoka has built most of their shoes on higher stack heights.
The higher stack height in trainers allows for more plush and luxurious rides. The New Balance More v2 is also known as the “New Balance Fresh Foam More v2 or NB More v2”. All different names for the same shoe.
If it isn’t obvious, More in the NB More v2 stands for “More Shoe.” LOL. Compared to the New Balance 1080v10 or NB 880v10, it has more cushion. If you feel like you want or need more cushion, the NB More v2, might be for you.
