PLUSH RIDELooking like a track shoe built atop a precarious scaffolding, the Mega Ride doesn’t scream “marathon.” But I found myself comfortably chewing up the miles on the cushy undercarriage. Near the end of one long run, I was still cruising on downhills where I’d typically be bracing for impact. Best of all, the forward-leaning cant and responsive midsole seemed to propel me into my next stride.
Bonus: Its see-you-in-2015 look makes the Mega Ride as at home strolling the mall as pounding the neighborhood pavement.
Bummer: At 13.5 ounces, this shoe is a tad heavy.
