I have a pair of Nike Fury 2 that have been relegated to APFT use only, because I'm having trouble finding a replacement. They're 5mm drop and I have a pair of Superfeet insoles inside.
I've explored New Balance, but they tend to not have removable insoles. A lot of the most popular options are zero drop, which I spent a year trying to acclimate to, but it was just too much strain on my lower legs.
Normal shoes in the 11mm drop range force me into heel striking, which makes me extra slow. I'd like up stay away from Nike, but at the end of the day I'm going with whatever gives me the best results.
Does anyone have any good feedback on runners in the 4-6mm drop range?
