I’ve come to a realization that my running shoe preferences have shifted to a point where I simply cannot put miles on certain shoes any more. That’s not to say www.amolan.es they are bad shoes, just that they don’t meet my personal needs. The two shoes that I’m going to comment on here both fit in this category, but for different reasons. I’ve had both for 9+ months, and I need to retire them to make additional space on my shoe rack…When I requested a review sample of Nike Air Max 270 Femme the Somnio Runnaissance 2 late last year there weren’t many truly zero drop shoes out on the market, so I was intrigued to see how they might work out (disclosure: these shoes were review samples provided free of charge by the manufacturer). They arrived in the middle of winter, and given the horrible conditions we had up here in New Hampshire last winter, I couldn’t wear them until the snow had melted (not enough traction on ice and snow).The Somnio Runaissance 2 shoes are unique in concept because they are self customizable. You can insert Nike Air Span 2 Herren foam wedges of varying density under the lateral heel and medial forefoot to suit your own needs/tastes (see yellow foam under the heel and forefoot in the photos to the right and above), you can choose the amount of arch support provided by the insole (3-levels to choose from), and you can opt to Nike Air Vapormax Donne place a varus wedge under the insole (lifts the medial side of the insole up a bit (again, 3-levels of wedge height). Though my personal preference is for as little support as possible, I realize that others may have different preferences, and the ability to customize a single shoe is at least innovative. Adding in a way to self-customize heel lift to a shoe would seem like a natural extension of this design.In terms of fit, the Runnaissance is pretty comfortable. It’s definitely not a wide shoe in the forefoot, but it doesn’t overly Nike Air Max TN Damen squeeze my metatarsals and toes together – I’d call it average width. The finish of the interior is nice, and the shoe is well constructed.
The sole of the Runiassance is durable, with a substantial amount of outsole rubber underneath. My first problem with this shoe, however, is that it’s advertised as a NADA shoe – meaning no anterior drop applied. However, when I measure it with C-calipers without the insole, I consistently measure it as 4mm drop (22.5 heel, 18.5 forefoot). The insole is uniform width, so I am doubtful that this is really a Nike Air Vapormax Femme zero drop shoe.
On the run, the shoe feels similar to many other minimal drop shoes. The ride, however, is fairly firm and stiff – this is not a very flexible shoe, and the closest comparison I can come up with is the GoLite Amp Lite. Furthermore, and this is my biggest problem with the Runaissance, Nike Air Max TN Donne the shoe is heavy. At 11.3 oz, it exceeds my weight threshold by quite a bit (I almost never wear anything above 10 oz). This combination of firmness, stiffness and weight makes the shoe feel a bit brick-like underfoot. If you are looking for a shoe with a lower heel-toe drop and are coming out of a heavy traditional training shoe, you may not notice, but for someone used to ultralight shoes, these will not meet your needs. I’ve not put more than 20 miles on these for this reason – simply too much shoe for me at this point in my running Nike Air Max 95 Femme life.Interestingly enough, after writing the bulk of this review, I did a bit of poking around and it appears that Somnio may no longer be in business – their website lists no shoes in stock, and the chatter on their Facebook page suggests that they’ve closed up shop. However, I’ve heard very good Nike Air Max 270 Hombre things about the Somnio Nada (an ultralight, zero drop racer), and Donald over at Running and Rambling indicated that they may be rebranding as a company called Nada which claims to be “Born From The Minimalist Movement” – check out the nadasports.com webpage here. Not sure what the deal is or if they still are in business – if you have any insight, leave a comment and let us know!
