Needing new gear for my feet, went with zero drop … the latest technological advancement for runners. And there’s plenty of articles with differing points of view … all I know personally, it was a no-brainer … since I didn’t have a runner’s background, I wouldn’t have to transition to zero drop, it’s been my natural running gait all along. The running I’ve been doing for the past couple of months have been in my flat shit shoes … minimalist is my middle name. And, I can tell you after a quick trial run on the street last night, I absolutely LOVE LOVE them!! Check ’em out … my brand spanking new sweet Saucony Virratas in my civvies … Thanks for the early-birdie Tiff!!
