Need for speed
THE racing shoe segment of the market is becoming somewhat split. This is partially due to the rise of carbon-plated footwear but also the fact that many shoes are becoming much lighter. Here we take a look at some of the leading contenders to toe the line in.

NEW BALANCE – Fresh Foam Tempo London

£115.00, newbalance.co.uk

Updated with the brand’s new FRESH FOAMx midsole, as its name suggests this shoe is perfect for tempo runs.

With a lively and responsive feel, the Fresh Foamx offers a noticeably different experience. Unlike many new-breed shoes, this remains relatively low profile so the extra zip the foam provides is a welcome touch.

The Hypoknit upper is an engineered mesh designed to provide areas of both stretch and support around the foot where required and offers a sock-like fit.

HOKA ONE ONE – Mach 3

£130.00, hokaoneone.eu

For Hoka fans the Mach offers all the familiar traits of the brand in a lightweight package.
