Light Done Right

With all the hype about lightweight running shoes this year, it can be a project to determine if lightweight’s right for you. The Diadora Mythos Samurai, retailing for about $80, is a great shoe for trying light. This hyrbid racer/trainer offers more support and cushioning than many lightweight running shoes, but is significantly lighter than most trainers, namely the Mythos Axeler Trainer. The shoe features a minimalist upper and a substantial dual-density mid-sole. It’s heralded as both a great shoe for fast paced runs while serving larger runners and those with inefficient bio-metrics especially well.
