Longtime readers will recall that I bought these shoes primarily for the rock plate in the forefoot which is supposed to guard against, well, rocks.
Today’s first run on the treacherous single-track (eight-track?) of the Incarnate cinders proved otherwise.
Only a mile or so into my run, a small rock got inside the shoe. Luckily it slid up to the front of the shoe. Problem solved, right?
Wrong. The rock plate offered absolutely NO protection. The next three miles were spent with a small rock rubbing a hole in the bottom of my foot. And not in a good way.
I don’t mind it when shoe companies make stuff up, but don’t be bad-talking Abe Vigoda, that’s all I’m saying. And if you’re looking for rock protection, maybe try the Primus cheerleader shoes.
