the Superior and Lone Peak e

I tend to think of Altra?s Lone Peak as their most recognizable Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Femme model and it has surely seen great success in the last few years and they are solid fixture at every Adidas Gazelle Womens trail race I go to. The 3rd full version sees the most substantial update of all versions before it with entirely new outsole, midsole and upper. I had some issues, particularly with the upper not being secure enough on the Lone Peak 2.5, but really liked the Neoshell version in which the neoshell upper is more secure by not stretching during the run. The Lone Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 Femme Peak 3.0 attempts to address some of the issues I had with the 2.5. First, the midsole is a little softer and gives Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Negrasa slightly more responsive ride to it which makes it run better on hardpack/smoother trail; more responsive and lively which I like. That said it feels like there is a little more stack height and a slightly softer foam so it comes across as an almost quasi-maximalist experience in feel to me and drifts just bit away from the core Lone Peak position as Altra?Nike Air Max 97 Femme s all around trail option. I tested this out on two different Lone Peak 3.0s (pre-production model and production pair) and it still feels softer and more flexible than the 2.5. This basically creates a bigger gap between the Superior and Lone Peak experience. Oddly enough, with the added stack, there actually seems to be less structure to the midsole due to the midsole Nike Air Max 95 Womens compound being slightly softer and softer outsole rubber as well compared to the 2.5. This results in a Nike Air Max 90 Womens Black more flexible ride overall and bit more bouncy feel (good on hardpack, but worse on uneven/tech ground for my tastes) and it leaves me feeling that the shoe just doesn?t quite commit to either being a more protective, bomber long run option (which is what I always have wanted it to be) or more minimal/lighter option since it has elements of both. Since I?d prefer Nike Air Max 90 Homme the more protective approach (lighter option is already the Superior) I think they could thicken the Stoneguard rock plate (which feels pretty light) to add some structure to the soft and flexible ride which would also give the shoe just a bit more spine and protection for the long outings is it best suited for.
