1. The Brooks Levitate 2 is a new running shoe by Brooks that features their new cushion DNA AMP and their popular fit knit upper. This shoe has an 8mm drop wich means that the midsole will drop 8mm per stride and it has pretty good support. This shoe was meant to energize the runner by giving amazing energy return. I must say myself that this shoe makes you feel like you are walking on air and running on springs. The main difference between this and the Levitate 1 is that it features a fit knit ankle sock, which I find makes a better fit for your ankle. All together this shoe is for an active experienced runner who wants to have fun while running.
2. The Saucony Freedom ISO 2 is one of the many shoes in which Saucony has utilized its Everun technology. Saucony knocked it out of the park with its new light, durable, and supporting cushion Everun. This shoe also uses its new ISO KNIT upper which gives a nice breathable sock-like ride. Unfortunately this shoe has… pretty bad support, it will make your ankle hurt, but it will get better over time. This shoe also has a 4mm drop and a crazy light ride. The Freedom ISO 2 is an incredible shoe that feels like you are wearing nothing on your foot—this shoe weighs 9.1oz!. If you are looking for an all around great reliable running shoe, this is it.
