    I wonder whether the vomero #3 would provide the same result? It appears the midsole is slightly firmer, but with the introduction of the lateral arch support for a cavus foot type, it has reduced the stiffness through the 'shank' of the shoe.

    Anyone tried running in this shoe?

    Are there any publications (in print or online) in Australia that have a comparison or rating of runners?

    I do not know of any and hope there never is any. They are not very helpful. The individual response to a running shoe is very subject specific, making a mockery of any sort of ranking that the above Consumer Report did and what Runners World used to do.

    The American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine has rankings of shoes for "motion control" which can be accessed at www.aapsm.org/crishoe.html.

    The shoes are rated on several factors as listed on the shoe evaluation form that can be viewed on the main shoe reccomendation page.

    If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to ask. This is a service provided by the Academy for our members / fellows and the public.

    sincerely;
    Bruce Williams, D.P.M.
