New Balance Rebel v2
For my fellow wide feet sufferers, here is how you should buy the Saucony Endorphin Speed
This is a shoe I often see people asking about for wide feet and I recently needed an up-tempo trainer that would serve my fast long runs so I decided to pull the trigger. Another shoe I was considering was the New Balance Rebel V2 but I need the extra cushion of stack height for my 10+ mile runs. I usually run in a US 10, but had been reading that the Speed is a tight fit so I followed the advice of going half a size up to 10.5 and I am pleasantly surprised by the fit.

NEW BALANCE FUELCELL REBEL v2 REVIEW | The Ginger Runner
I don't know how they're going to get away from that other than removing this sort of lateral flare and the longitudinal design and color blocking beauty is always in the eye of the bolder, and in this case it's you know, i don't always look down when i'm Wearing these shoes, that's sort of where i'm at with it, bringing us to our conclusion. The fuel cell rebel version 2 is a solid update to the original without adding too much weight and improving upon a shoe that i liked a lot, though i considered very weird, i think i referred to it as really great, but also really weird uh happy to Say that that still carries over the shoe is still really great.

Happy Feet!
