HOKA took all the good traits from the original Carbon X and stuck with them, while replacing the things that needed some work.  The upper is high-end, providing a snug sock like fit with an in-built mesh bootie.  In terms of improvements from the original Carbon X; the heel pull tab is way better, and the heel cup seems to provide a better lockdown.
Hoka's Bondi 7 encapsulates all that the brand Hoka One One is about, better than perhaps any other shoe.  High stack heights, metarocker midsole geometry and oh so soft midsole foam.  Runner's Tribe took the Bondi 7's through about 150km of road and light trails, below is our unpaid for review.
Runner’s Tribe – Running Shoe Reviews As with most Nike shoes, the Pegasus 35 Turbo comes with a lot of hype. Loaded with a new magic/hero foam (yes it has some of the same foam as used in the Vaporfly 4%) the shoe is simple, light, and the midsole is...
If a higher stack height is correlated to more speed, then ON must have another theory in mind. The Cloudboom is more of a traditional racing flat. There is ample ground feel, and the cushioning feels mild. A vastly different feeling to the Vaporfly road racing shoes so many are used to. Horses for courses.
(c) Runner’s Tribe Km’s run during testing process: 400 After a review not influenced by advertising dollars? Read on. New Balance’s Fresh Foam Beacon is an incredibly light weight trainer, a very versatile training shoe.  Made with an EVA midsole, the shoe is basic, but incredibly light, with a decent slab of...
Some of us have seen those unique new shoes, the ones with the strange pod-like midsoles.  Fad or legit? We smashed the ON Cloudflows (the shoe that broke the Ironman world record) through 800km of road and trails. Below is how they stacked up. Specs Type: Neutral lightweight trainer. Ideal for tempo...
The Hoka One One Torrent 2 is a neutral, lightweight trail shoe with aggressive outsole lugs. It is designed for trail runners who want to run fast on varied terrain. It’s a shoe with a modest amount of underfoot cushion,  no where near as much as say the Hoka Speedgoat or EVO Mafaete shoes.  The Torrent 2 is much more like a ‘traditional’ shoe that one of the ‘old school’ brands would release, but with the unique Hoka touches like a 5mm drop, soft foam, and a rocker bottom.
Runner's Tribe When Adidas released their Boost midsole technology in 2013, it changed running shoe technology forever. From that point, other brands were playing catch up. The problem with Adidas’s boost technology, is that it isn’t proprietary, they simply used Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU).  Since then, numerous other brands have used...

Nike are the kings at marketing, among other things. And few shoes exemplify this more than the Infinity React. Nike’s marketing machine had people spinning with talk about injury risk reduction. They cited an external study by the British Columbia Sports Medicine Research Foundation (BCSMRF) on 226 runners using the Nike React Infinity Run as well as the Nike Structure 22. It indicated that runners using the former had a 52% lower injury rate. It’s an area in which more research is required. So, is this all complete BS, or are the shoes legit? Runner’s Tribe took them through 310kms and below is our unpaid for review.
