    Either the Vomero or the Pegasus depending on which fits you better. I wish they still made the Zoom Elite. The Vomero is way too much shoe for me, and the Elite (particularly the ZE9) has probably been the best shoe ever for me. I find even the Peg to be too much shoe. I've been training more and more in the Zoom Fly FK and the numerous Streak 6s that I have in my closet.

    I would assume it's due to the stiffness of the midsole. It has to be working the muscles and tendons in your foot A LOT more than a typical shoe.

    First run in the Next% is in the books.

    I run 2 to 3 times per week in VF (VF1 and VF2), so I’m used to that VF feeling, and these feel pretty much the same, just with a bit more cushion. I don’t think there’s anything groundbreaking going on with these compared to the previous two versions. Just a better lockdown like the VF1, prob a step up from that, and a bit more midsole cushion.

    The wear on the outsole is different too in that it seems that the foam that is scraping the ground is kind of rubbing away rather than what you see in the earlier versions where the paint peels away and exposes the inner foam. It’s like the paint/coloring is actually part of the foam and wears away similar to the epic react (pic below). The two strips of rubber in the heel area definitely is working better than the 4 isolated lugs in the previous versions.

    I like them, will definitely be racing the HM and marathon in them. But I think if you’ve got the VF1 or VF2, you aren’t missing out that much. Those are still almost as good as these. I’ll prob keep the Next% fresh for my HM and Marathon races and still do my low key races in the VF1 or VF2, and also train in those as well.

    How’d the offset lacing feel?

    The lockdown is good, very secure. Not sure if that’s due to the offset lacing or just the change back to the traditional upper, or maybe both. I didn’t really think about it after I tied them, so that’s prob a good thing

    Maybe it’s my foot shape but I feel better lockdown in Flyknit VF as opposed to the first version. Not a big issue as I like both models and can’t wait to grab the Next%. I thought I read somewhere on these forums or IG that there may be a Next% restock before July for NRC users. Anybody else hear this?

    I was just thinking the same thing..

    These appear to be more Exp's then streets....and Exp's are currently
    Crackhead prices in most outlets right now...

    I'm a huge fan of the streets so if they are an upgrade to those...

    I'm in

    Interesting...in the first picture you can see the feet through the shoe, so I wonder if the material is close to EXP (which you can’t see through) or closer to Element 87 (which you can).

    I'm not sure what that has to do with running?

    i think cork midsole pretty much means casual shoes...?

    I only meant that a cork insole isn’t intended for running, I believe

    I mean, intended to be casual or not, if it's just a Peg 35 with a react midsole instead of cushlon + zoom air it should be a serviceable runner for people who like React as a cushioning system.

    Trying to think if there’s a runner that uses that react set up, the only thing that might be an issue is stability other than that should be fine...

    Per SNKRS it’s Lunarlon. Probably better off looking at a Vaporfly or Pegasus if running is on your mind

    Damn they just changed it within the last 15 minutes. Nice catch.
