Salming Sports is a new shoe company to the obstacle course racing market and North America. The company was originally founded in Sweden in 2001 and in the last two years has been building momentum in the North American market in the road running community. The launch of Salming OT Comp is the first shoe from the company made for the obstacle racing enthusiast.
We tested the Salming OT Comp (the Official Shoe of Savage Race)on varying rocky terrain, including some steep, rocky ascents and descents, packed and loose dirt, and even a road 5k to & from the trails - check out how it performed
A fan favorite is back this summer from Inov-8. The popular Trailroc series comes back this summer with an upgrade. The Trailroc's were a fan favorite among many obstacle racers for years. When Inov-8 discontinued them a few years ago many flocked to the stores and stocked up. But fear no more that favorite is back!
Inov-8 has revamped much of their shoe line in the last couple of years. One steady shoe that has been a workhorse of the company has been the Roclite series. For 2017, the Roclite series has had a facelift and the latest generation of the shoe introduces a more rugged design. Recently, Inov-8 sent along a pair of the 2017 Inov-8 Roclite 305's to test out.
This week, Matt changes it up a little bit. We are going from what you are going to be doing during a race, to what how you should prepare for one. Anyone new to Obstacle Racing has asked the question, "What shoes should I get?"
Brett provides his in-depth review of the Icebug product line fit for OCR's and Mud Runs: Mist, Acceleritas, and Zeal - and provide you with the info where & when you should use each one for racing or training.
Wide shoes = wide feet, right? Those were my exact thoughts when I first glanced at Altra's Running shoes. I assumed they were wide shoes for runners with wide feet, I never gave them a chance. Recently I realized that wasn't the case. After multiple rave reviews I figured I would give them a chance.
