I am thinking of buying the asics pirranha. Very light.

I know you guys didn't ignore me. I thought that since I already had found a nice shoe on that site. But I will wait to see what adarq can find if asics pirannha is not good.

quick review:

https://runrepeat.com/asics-piranha

that piranha looks pretty good.. 3.9 oz fast shoe. the fact that you want to train AND race in them, makes that weight seem reasonable. You don't put in huge volume in your sprint training sessions so I don't think these would be a problem.

the only thing I don't like about them right off the bat, is the 4mm heel/toe drop. It's not huge, very small in fact, but definitely noticeable to someone like me who prefers 0 drop (or negative drop) for running/sprinting shoes.





i couldn't find anything on sportsshoes, lots of nice spikes but nothing spikeless for sprinting :/

couldn't find anything on runningwarehouse either, bleh!

http://www.runningwarehouse.eu/searchshoe.html?cat_filter=MRSROARACSH&type=men#cat_filter=MRSROARACSH&type=men&search=args&filter_pron=RMSNEU&minprice=&maxprice=&filter_type=null&opt_page=1&opt_sort=alphaAtoZ&opt_perpage=20

everything is for 5k+, bulky heel etc.


seems like the asics piranha is the best find so far.. I wish they had my saucony shay xc4's on one of these sites, i'd recommend that. 0 drop & has a bit more support, coming in at ~4.4 oz.



anyone else have any links, specifically with spikeless flats in the UK?

You can find a lot on amazon. But other than that I can't think of any other links.
I guess its the asics piranha then.

since i'm returning my saucony compression shorts (awful), just ordered a pair of saucony carrera xc 3's, 1 oz lighter than my new saucony shay xc4's... my severely broken in saucony shay xc4's are probably just as light though. I absolutely love my saucony shay xc4's but they are becoming harder to find. So just going to try these out for fun, I imagine i'll love them. I actually saw some kid (16:XX'r) in early 2016 race with them, one of the few people doing road races in flats like this. He was really impressive.
