Does the new Kiger still have 4mm of drop? Any update for the Wildhorse?

Sam Winebaum said...

Hi Anonymous, yes 4mm drop for Kiger 5. Wildhorse is an upper update. Details soon in full preview article. Sam, Editor

It seems that Saucony is reading online reviews. I've read many complaining about Pro-Lock system on Kinvara line. Have I heard correctly that launch is in november this year?

Alessandro said...

the Guiderails of Brooks are very, very, very similar to Adidas Solar.....

JoeBlack said...

shall we expect anything new from the s-lab series of SALOMON? any new proposals in 2019?

Sam Winebaum said...

Hi JoeBlack,
For the spring 2019 releases Salomon did not present any S/Lab updates to us. I do see an new version of the S/Lab XA Amphib in the catalog called out as lighter.

Love the videos. Hard to hear on Altra interview but good tips on the run. Kept the arms back today. Helped.

Jeremy said...

Any word on a new Saucony Zealot? I see a lot of retailers are discounting the Zealot ISO 3. I wonder if Saucony has a replacement, for if they're being discontinued.

Sam Winebaum said...

Hi Paul, Thanks! Will and did work on audio. The Altra booth was super noisy and busy and Golden talks fairly softly, Next show I will have a separate mic. Every time I see the new Altra I encourage Golden to give some form and other tips. He is a master and loves to teach and share. Vast experience over a 1000 form classes taught and then he applies to shoe design.

Hi Jeremy, The Zealot ISO was not discussed and I did not get a full catalog. Will find out.
Sam, Editor

Jeremy said...

Thanks Sam!

Jeremy said...

I got in touch with Saucony and they confirmed the Zealot is being discontinued. Apparently the Freedom is filling that gap. Widely different shoes in my opinion!! Time to stock up on Zealot's before they're gone forever. :(

Sam Winebaum said...

Hi Jeremy, Thanks for providing this (sad) info.

Wonder how the new Ravenna 10's will be. The 9's have been a fantastic shoe with great fit and invisible stability support.

Unknown said...

When will pictures of the Launch 6 be published?
