Gait analysis- Nike Edition

If you want to start running the best piece of advice I can give you is to go and get a “Gait Analysis” at a specialist retailer like Sweatshop or Runners Need. Over my next few posts I will be analysing my gait analysis in various brands of running shoes looking at all categories, from Neutral to […]

Nike Flyknit Zoom Agility

I’ve been waiting for the Nike Flyknit Zoom Agility to release for what feels like forever.

It  fits the performance bill, is allegedly more eco-friendly (based on more efficient methods of production) and looks HELLA FRESH! But what’s special about the adizero Prime Boost? […]
