    Biggest avoidable mistake in marathon running is to race in a pair of shoes that you have not run it. Maybe the world is a lot different now than in my racing days but that is just a no-no.

    Agreed. You need a least a long training run in them prior, and that would be after a couple of short runs.

    A new pair of the same model needs significantly less "breaking in" than a new model.

    Meanwhile....in the Times today....

    A new analysis by The New York Times, an update of the one conducted last summer, suggests that the advantage these shoes bestow is real — and larger than previously estimated.

    We found that a runner wearing the most popular versions of these shoes available to the public — the Zoom Vaporfly 4% or ZoomX Vaporfly Next% — ran 4 to 5 percent faster than a runner wearing an average shoe, and 2 to 3 percent faster than runners in the next-fastest popular shoe. (There was no meaningful difference between the Vaporfly and Next% shoes when we measured their effects separately. We have combined them in our estimates.)

    HS cross country is waaaay down my list of interests in the sport, so I have to plead complete ignorance here.

    What did most/all of the runners wear at XNX last week?

    Not sure if the question is serious....However...My niece ran NXN a few years ago....and Nike gives the athletes lots of stuff...so I presume Nike....

    Also Nike really dominates in the cross country shoe market....

    Nike was a given; my query—given the subject line of this thread—was what KIND? Did they spoil them all with big el-expenso ones?
