Saucony Ride 13
Nike Invicible 50km first impressions
Clunky but nice. Today I did 30k longrun at 4:50/km average variing pace with some 4:20-4:40/km and I think this is the main strength of the shoe. Once you start pushing a little (effort 6-7/10) they become alive, muting ground super nicely and helping you to maintain the pace. Outsole grip is fine, not the best (Adidas Continental) not the worst (Saucony Ride 13).

Size

Saucony Kinvara 12
I never fully adjusted to the zero drop either. Also fit wise, this shoe is far too narrow and for me in the midfoot and is actually worse than many others here in normal width. The toe box is wide, sure, but the middle part is very narrow. Still somehow, the shoe still had a very loose feeling on my feet and it sometimes felt like the whole shoe could rotate on my foot (if that makes sense).

Stout, Plush, Durable: Saucony Ride 13 Daily Trainer
It just feels stout in the hands and that's why it's a little heavier okay. But if you don't want to buy a shoe every six weeks like i said, i think you could use this shoe, probably if you're, depending on your volume of training, maybe for three months or four months, you could get all your training into the ride 13.

Fans of Early Saucony Kinvaras Will Dig Its 12th Version
I gave the 12 an overall rating of ‘7 out of 7’ because it is everything that I look for in a shoe. It continues to be my lightweight and responsive go-to and I feel like I can put a ton of miles on a pair and they will still feel like they do in the beginning. (That said, I’m aware that my smaller body frame and running mechanics make it a little easier for the shoes to endure my ride
