The next shoe up from the Saucony Endorphin Collection is the Saucony Endorphin Shift. Of the three models in the Saucony Endorphin collection, the Saucony Endorphin is made for training. It’s most similar to an already staple shoe from Saucony: The Ride 13.
July of 2020 might have been the most states I’ve ever run in in one month. It was a busy life month as I moved from New Jersey to California.
As most people familiar with Saucony know, Saucony created three new shoes in the Saucony Endorphin line. I like this approach to their shoes because they categorize them into the various needs of running. You don’t need to run all of your miles in a carbon plated shoe, so having other easily distinguishable options is great.
As I mentioned last week, I’m participating in the GRIT Summer Distance Project. I signed up to run 300 miles in 30 days. Some years that wouldn’t be a “difficult” accomplishment, but I haven’t been running as much in 2019, 2020. I started last Monday. Even though it’s not a “race”, it’s something to train for, so I wanted to bring back training logs. I also have a Strava if you’re interested.
It’s been a little while since I’ve thought Asics has done great things with their running shoes. It’s not that Asics is bad, but they are using outdated and heavier material. It’s almost as if Asics is still in the flip phone stage and everyone else is using smartphones.
That being said, Asics has started to redo many of their options, including the Asics Gel Cumulus 22 as well as the Asics Gel Nimbus 22.
