Everyone loves em... if you haven't been in to check them out then you're missing out.
The fall releases of your favorite shoes are out and the updates are incredible.
Nike released a new shoe called the Odyssey that I am particularly excited about. New Balance, Asics, Brooks, and Saucony all have iterations of their go-to's out or coming out in a few weeks. Asics has dropped a NYC Marathon specific colorway of the Nimbus which looks awesome on foot.
What I am saying is... now is the time to get your Fall/Winter shoes while the getting is good.
I was skeptical of the Odyssey at first until I put it on. It has quickly become one of my favorite running shoes, of all time! Rivaled only by the Nike Vitesse of '06. That is unless New Balance decides to come out with a current, performance edition of the 574.
But back to the Odyssey...
It has entered the running world as a high cushion stability shoe to fill a missing link in Nike's line. It has 2 Zoom air units in the midsole and a rib cage type support that runs from the heel almost to the toe. The length of the supports creates a very stable and smooth ride that makes for an enjoyable run. The upper of the shoe Nike's new flymesh that has been attached to the rest of Nikes line and like the rest has fit really well.
This also means a lot of last year's shoes have just gone on sale... be sure to stop in soon!
