I had an idea about shoes – gadget. This idea seems crazy for runners because the toes are not touched a ground. RunScribe is a perfect opportunity to see ideas work or not. It was cool to be able to provide the metrics with a tool of compare runs.
Can you please provide RS metrics for both: when you run in your crazy shoes and regular running shoes under same conditions? merci
Carolina, thank you very much for your question
Here, for convenient view I cut and paste RunScribe metrics of my runs and saunters in Soaring shoes vs. running shoes.
Under same conditions: same terrain, same runner, and close to a same pace.
@Serge -- that's pretty cool!Two things are particularly interesting to me:1 -- Flight Ratio (% of time in the air) is lower in the Soaring shoes, which typically points to lower 'efficiency'.But with the springs, they need time to compress, but then release 'quicker'. It would be interesting to see how that changes the typical 'trajectory' of your foot.2 -- Shock (Braking Gs in particular) are significantly lower in the Soaring shoes.
Would you mind if we shared your PICs on social media?Thanks!-Tim
I am openWhat do you think about "max pronation velocity"?Thanks
It makes sense that it would be rather lower, as shoe cushion tends to have that same affect (velocity is higher in minimalist shoes than in maximalist, for example).
I'm working on a series of articles for Running Unraveled that dives into what we are seeing for differences in metrics based on shoe characteristics. It's pretty interesting stuff. But not a whole lotta soaring shoes for reference
Perhaps it is interesting: Metrics of Soaring shoes and Spira shoesUnder same conditions: same terrain, same runner, and close to a same pace
