    Re: 2014 running shoe counts at the Ironman World Championships

    Hoka's are the big movers! (that is despite this being a 'race' in which I thought Hoka's would not be that popular)
    Adidas gone; but of a surprise given that the five fastest marathons ever have been run in Adidias boosts; but in fairness to Adidas they have not targeted the triathlons and focused on the marathon
    Skechers static despite the publicity surround Meb's Boston win - would have thought that they would have gone up.

    ...but then again, triathletes are a different breed!

    Turns out there was a typo at Lava magazine and adidas were accidentally left out.
    They should be at 6.9% - apparently its being fixed tomorrow!

    Just been approached by a triathlete, asking about my opinion of the On shoes. Its not my area and never heard of them. What does anyone think about them? Any experience with them?
    The triathlete is aiming to give up his orthoses ...

    I reviewed a study on the On shoes here: http://www.runresearchjunkie.com/on-running-shoe/

    Getting rid of the orthotics is going to be easy if he allows the tissues time to adapt to the loads and IF (and a very big IF) the loads are not too high and the tissues can adapt ... and is the effort to do so worth it?

    wow!

    Here is some more data from that site from the "California 10/20 a 10 mile race":
    They noted:
    and this was telling:
    so Vibrams made up 0.22%! and barefoot made up 0.07%! ... and remember we were told that this was going to take over the world.

    Looking at that dataset, only 9 shoes have really have any decent share of the market (Asics, Brooks, Saucony, adidas, Nike, Mizuno, New Balance, Hoka, Newton) - they jointly had 97% .... that is not much left over for all the other brands to fight over (even those brands that did not make the count)

  16. Look at that! Those minimalist Vibram shoes, that were going to take over the running shoe industry, are just exploding....errr....I mean they exploded....and then vanished from the running shoe scene.

    Anyone ever heard of Chris McDougall, Dan Lieberman or Blaise Dubois? I haven't.....;)
