Saucony Responds to Nike's New Technology!

Looks like Saucony has responded to Nike's full carbon plate brand of shoes with its own line!

Endorphin Speed, the lightweight racer.

This is the very definition of competition, and it's a win-win for all of us runners and triathletes. Any type of banning would be very bad for the sports of running and triathlon and would run counter to the innovating trend of the shoe companies.

In addition, a ban on running shoes with full carbon plates doesn't make sense. Yes, there seems to be a big energy return on each step, but this is YOUR energy, energy that is put in when each foot hits the ground, not energy from outside assistance. In other words, the shoes basically increase the efficiency of your running. There's nothing wrong with that!
If the price is reasonable I might pick up some of these Saucony shoes in the near future.
Endorphin Shift, the trainer version of the line.
