The Skechers GOrun 7+ is the updated version of their GoRun. Sketchers has fallen off the map for a few years with their running shoes. This year, they are bringing back some of their favorite models. I haven’t run in Sketchers since 2014 or so, and that was before I had worked for years in run specialty, so this review feels like a blast from the past.
The Hoka One One Challenger 6 is the first version of the Hoka Challenger I’ve run in. I’ve heard nothing but great things about it, but it wasn’t until moving to the west coast I needed a more substantial trail shoe. I tried on previous versions, but there was no need to run in it because I wasn’t running on the terrain.
Sidekick Tools are newer in the recovery tool market. The Sidekick Swerve Tool, also known as the Swerve Muscle Scraper, is designed to get deep into your muscles and stay healthy. As someone who is fairly injury prone, I am always looking for new recovery tools and devices to help me stay injury-free.
The Hoka One One Rincon 2 was an anticipated updated after the Hoka Rincon debuted last year. It became prevalent due to the lightweight yet high cushioned Hoka model. Most people picture Hoka as a big, bulky brand, but the Hoka Rincon is quite the opposite. If you liked the original Rincon, you won’t be disappointed with the Hoka One One Rincon 2.
Since I am enjoying the Bandit, I decided to try the Under Armour Sonic HOVR 3 as well. I actually ran in the original UA Sonic a couple of years ago. Under Armour has stepped up their game in shoes. It hasn’t been until around 2018 that I would say Under Armour makes good running shoes. Now they even have an elite team in Flagstaff.
