    I'm guessing it'll fit similar to the Gyakusou Pegasus Turbos since the upper looks like its exact same - if that helps.

    And for reference, those fit rather large for me. I wear a 9.5 in most Nike runners, but needed a 9 in that one.

    I saw Maurten gel at my local running shop this week. Has anyone tried? I’ve seen a few people talk about the drink/mixes and they make it sound like a Godsend. Or is the gel what they were referring to? :nerd:

    Combo of both most likely if it’s a half/full. I drink the 320 mix the hour before the marathon and have 5 gels during. Nothing but good things to say from my experience.

    Same here. I had the 320 during my last marathon a few weeks ago along with three gels and no negatives to report. Also a good alternative if your looking for gels without caffeine.

    Personal preference but I’ve heard consistent use of a shoe with a carbon fiber plate can lead to plantar issues so I would use the ZF for some faster paced runs but not everyday. Another good choice for a daily tainer is the Vomero 14.

    Would explain my flareup of PF over the last month or so. Where did you hear about this at?

    I find it interesting Hoka using "X" as part of the name. If it was Nike, Im sure these brands will file a lawsuit right away against Nike. Or maybe "X" isn't patent yet.
    I guess I'll wait for more review from more runners comparing them and Nike version. Not being bias, but I find the reviews as inputs. At the end, whichever works for us.

    yah i dont think you can patent a generic phrase or letter, like "zero" in drinks, i am sure coke would love to patent it but not pepsi is using it and there's nothing they can do about it

    like nike tried to patent chucks too and the court ruled that its a generic design, i think the only part they won is the diamond pattern on the bottom of the shoes can't be copied

    printed on the midsoles also proFLYx so for the most part as long as its not in the same order of words, anyone could use it

    they could probably use flyvapor and get away with it or xzoom

    You have more info in this? Since they have been fire saling the ZF1's in the outlets I've grabbed at least 4 pairs and been mostly training in the them...

    I developed PF maybe two months ago and just figured it was overuse...

    Interesting that it might be my shoes....
