Teva’s new TevaSphere Speed shoes want to transform the way you run.

Bucking the minimalist trend, the TevaSphere Speed shoe accounts for the fact that most runners land on their heels. Almost rocker-like in appearance, a spherical heel piece and midfoot outrigger pods manipulate stride to force a smooth transition from heel to forefoot. After spending the past six months or so working out in a pair of funky neon minimalist runners, I decided to try out a pair of TevaSpheres last night.

Bucking the minimalist trend, the TevaSphere Speed shoe accounts for the fact that most runners land on their heels.

THE GOOD: As someone who tends to randomly fall over at the most inopportune times, I appreciated the arch pressing into the bottom of my foot and holding me in place. And while I do love my minimalist runners, my feet tend to cramp often and easily, something that didn’t happen in the Teva shoes. 

THE BAD: I felt (and I’m sure looked) like I was learning to take my first steps. And I definitely almost wiped out when getting off the bus on my way home.
