Master Sizing and Fitting Thread


#401

It would probably be a little tight, mine are the same size.

How do kennedy’s fit? more like todays spikes or more like milers and eldo 1s? I usually wear 8/8.5 but always thought I could do bigger for older spikes, wondering if kennedys fit the same.


#403

Usually have to go a half size bigger. I needed to bump from 8 in just about every Nike spike to an 8.5. One of my college roommates had the same thing, but from 9 to 9.5.

Hey guys, i’m a size 8,5 in the pegasus 30 and a size 9 in the streak lt2, og victorys and tumbos. Will a size 9 lunaracer fit well?


#405

9 should be fine; the lunaracers are a little tighter in the toe box than the pegasus, but I’ve found them to be pretty comparable to vics and tumbos.


#406

I’ll go with a 9, thanks !


#407

Do OG tumbos fit similar to vic 2s?


#408

Yes, the vic 2 appears to be a little more comfortable thanks to the upper that’s all !

Adidas Takumi Sen - how does the fit compare to other Adidas or Nike shoes? I’m normally a 10 in Nike Flats, but I went 10.5 in the Adidas Adios Boost 2, so I’m deciding between going up or sticking true to size.


#410

My takumi sens are the same size (8) as my streak lt2’s and adios’ (1&2). That said, they are definitely a little tighter in the toe, so it sounds like you should probably go with 10.5. Being down half a size hasn’t been too much of a problem, but there have been one or two times that I’ve ended up with bloody toes, which is 1-2 times more than I’d like. Otherwise, great shoes, but not as durable as the old rocket, my all-time favorite.


#411

Appreciate the advice.

The Takumi Sen Boost is coming out in February, according to a RunningWarehouse Rep, so I’m excited for the new iteration. Should help with the durability and add a little extra cushioning.


#412

Hi guys, will a size medium Nike tape cut singlet be to big for 173cm mid distance runner?


#413

Do mambas fit similar to vics?


#414

Need some suggestions as an alternative to Saucony Mirage 4. I love this shoe and how it hits the road but after a few miles it feels like my foot is swimming around in it. Length of the shoe is good but it seems like the upper stretches as I go. Any alternatives, similar to this shoe?

(I’ve run in Kinvara and Fastwitch and loved both but neither are durable enough for the kind of mileage I’m running/wanting run).


#415

Give the Saucony ISO Zealot a shot when it comes out. It’s basically a beefed up Kinvara that’ll give you a bit of cushioning.

Alternatively, I love the Adidas Boston Boost, which IMO has a very Kinvara-esque feel while giving you a super long lifespan with the Boost midsole.


#416

Thanks for the suggestions. Definitely have been looking at the Zealot but my only concern is the support issue. I do alright in a neutral shoe but once I get up around 90-100mpw I start having little nagging injuries pop up. Should’ve put this in the previous post but I’m basically looking for something light, with a touch of support, that can handle more than a month of training.


#417

Have you tried the Brooks Pureflow?


#418

Yes, sadly that shoe didn’t work for me. It’s neutral and it felt mushy. Thanks for the suggestion though.


#419

I always have worn the original victory in a size 10, i just got a pair of original matumbos in a size 9.5, do you think Ill have any issue racing in the half size smaller?
