SHOE REVIEW: Mizuno Wave Rider 19

by Marathon Sports
on October 08, 2015

IMG_3430I thought I knew what to expect when unboxing and putting on a pair of Mizuno running shoes – the familiar firmness in the heel coupled with a structured upper fit – and a light, firm fit and feel.

The Wave Rider 19 threw a curveball at me when I put my foot into what felt like a pair of bedroom slippers! Mizunohas retooled the strobel board in the Wave Rider with an additional 2mm of EVA foam....

SHOE REVIEW: Mizuno Wave Inspire 12

by Marathon Sports
on October 06, 2015

by Megan Vigue, Marathon Sports Boston assistant manager

b2bInspireDespite always wishing that I could run in a lightweight and flexible shoe, experience has taught me that I really do need a shoe with some stability built into it. However, I’ve had a hard time finding a shoe that offers enough support without being too heavy or clunky. I was interested to see if the Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 could provide me...

What’s the most important thing for a runner? FEET!

SHOE REVIEW: Nike Lunarglide 7

by Marathon Sports
on October 01, 2015

by Caitlyn Donovan, Marathon Sports staff member

IMG_3254As someone who has run in the same model of supportive running shoe for nearly a decade, lacing up to run in the Nike Lunarglide 7 was daunting at first. I have not been able to find a shoe that offers a feel and comfort that I enjoy more than that of my usual footwear. BUT, I was pleasantly surprised by all that the Lunarglide 7 has to offer!


APPAREL REVIEW: Saucony Scoot Capri

by Marathon Sports
on September 30, 2015

by Taylor Newcomb, Marathon Sports staff member

detail-leggingsIf there is one piece of clothing I could wear every day, it would be the Scoot LX Capri from Saucony. When I first saw them in store, I really liked the colorful dots and bright orange waistband. I am not usually one to try out crazy colors and prints on pants, but they caught my eye. I tried them on and did not want to take them off.

PRODUCT PREVIEW: Fall Running Apparel

by Marathon Sports
on September 24, 2015

We have officially entered the (in our opinion) greatest running season ever! With that comes a bunch of brand new running apparel. The retail season can be a little tricky, as it doesn’t always perfectly mirror what Mother Nature is doing – you may have noticed that a couple weeks ago, even though it was 85 degrees out, our stores were newly stocked with plenty of half-zips, lightweight running...

SHOE REVIEW: Asics Gel-Kayano 22

by Marathon Sports
on September 22, 2015

by John Silvia, Marathon Sports staff member

The year was 1994kayano1 – Friends was debuting on NBC, the Red Sox winning the World Series was nothing more than a long-shot pipe dream and still an entire decade away, Red Sox fans had no idea who Pedro Martinez or Big Papi are, Google didn’t exist, and Under The Table and Dreamingwas turning Dave Matthews Band into a household name. If you asked anyone...

Fall marathon season is definitely upon us. How do we know? We seem to be getting more and more questions on a daily basis regarding INJURY PREVENTION! While running and training for a marathon can be one of the most incredible, fulfilling experiences of a lifetime, it’s also pretty rough on your body!

Luckily, we have forged amazing partnerships with local physical therapists to help take our...
