Thank you! This solves the discontinued H-street problem (f there was any) and makes for a cheaper shoe. There's only a women's Saloh on Puma's website, but Zappos has them for men.

H. Street - $73.95 on Zappos

Saloh - $68.95 ("An update to the H. Street")

The Cortlandts look great, and thank you for the review, but I think the Saloh is really what I'm looking for. I'm going to try to track down some tai chis, salohs, sambas, etc soon and try them all on.

Re: Shoes-Running-Crossfit

With the scientific measurement of my eye, I would guess that it's not quite as good as the h-street. The upper looks a little more restrictive than the h (next to trying on a fivefingers I've never felt anything so light), and the padding in the collar might restrict movement as well.

That said, having found a grey one on zappos, the thought of not having to wash my shoes (I have a white pair of h-streets) after every single wear makes me really want to get a pair.

Re: Shoes-Running-Crossfit

The Saloh's were reviewed on the PoseTech forum and many people did not like them nearly as much as the H-street. Like Darren noticed, the Saloh's have a leather piece across the upper which the posers (those who run using the Pose method) did not like. I tried the Salohs on at a local shoe store and liked them. I've never done any Pose running, so they felt drastically different (in a good way) than my current running shoes. Ultimately, I think your like or dislike of the Saloh's will depend on how much Pose-style running you've done and what type of shoes you've been running in.

Re: Shoes-Running-Crossfit

Just bought two pairs of H-Streets because of this thread. Found them on ebay. Man, it was hard to find these shoes in my size. I got real lucky that someone was selling two new pairs in my size. I'm usually cautious with purchases such as these but I don't think I'll be disappointed. For everyone who contributed to this thread .

I LOVE my five fingers. They are awesome for everything except the O-lifts and OH squat because my flexibility sucks and I need a little something in the heal.

Re: Shoes-Running-Crossfit

My first post on CF! I've been lurking for a while now and have learned so much from these boards. How about these(Puma Road Racer)? I'm currently trying to transition to POSE a bit at a time.

Hi Ryan, welcome to crazy town! Just from looking at it, it appears to have all of the disadvantages of the Saloh's (see above) w/o any of the benefits of the H-Streets. I'd personally recommend the Cortlandt XC Road as a transition shoe.

Re: Shoes-Running-Crossfit

Anyone used or had any experience with the New Balance 790's?

http://newbalance.com/running/trail/MR790/ (WFS)

I played with them a bit and they hardly have any padding. Very light. I think they would be a good fit for someone like me who is rather flat-footed.

George mentioned on page 6 that he switches between his VFFs and the 790s. I tried on a pair of 790s today and LOVED them.

I'm not flat-footed, but I felt very close to the ground and I liked having no support. I'd like to hear what others have to say about this shoe as well. Is it ok on the street or is there a different model better suited for that? And of course, will it last longer than 500 miles?

Re: Shoes-Running-Crossfit

I have flat feet. Will any of these shoes be a problem. If so is there an alternative?
