I've read a lot of good things about the Sketchers range, apparently their foams are pretty great. Puma also getting nice reviews for their recent stuff too.
Ive had 4-5 different versions of their GoRuns and they've all been great, lightweight trainers. Only downside is they wear out fast, hopefully these new tech "hyperfoams" with the Goodyear rubber are a bit different.

Also I did see this today, if you want to consider another option


I'll watch that in bit but I have actually considered those because they look fantastic which is obviously very important hahahaha

EDIT: This is quite interesting... What is the difference between the edge and the sky?

My problem is that I don't know what the difference between half these shoes are

The ASICS marketing spiel goes on about something about a stride v cadence runner, but from what little I've read thus far, I think the Edge will be a little more aggressive and suit shorter distances whilst the Sky remains their marathon go-to.

The video definitely makes a good case for the Edge, the extra platform width makes it a little more stable and the outsole looks nice and grippy. I'm also interested to see the reviews on the Endorphin Pro 3 which the guys at Doctors of Running have in their hands atm, it's had a fairly major revision.

The sale price on the Vaporlfy is hard to beat though....

Yeah i actually did read up on it last night, interesting how one is for cadence and one stride... I looked at my data on Garmin and when i pick up my pace my cadence only goes up slightly so I think i am a stride runner, and looking at a marathon shoe it appears the Sky is the go as well...
Like you said the price is hard to beat, i do worry about the stability and at the end of the day it is a lot of coin to spend on a pair of shoes so I will try resist temptation and actually go try them on/get fitted and maybe miss the price but have full confidence in my purchase.

Anyway otherwise, coming up to 14 weeks to Melbourne.. I had been in a bit of a funk the last month motivation wise... still getting my stuff done but getting out of bed etc was an effort but something has clicked this week and I have gotten excited and very motivated. Just need to keep dodging Covid or if it does get me hopefully it is not long covid, and hopefully it happens soon so i have time to recover and build still.
Very scared of getting it in the month before and ruining all the work
