2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Running Shoes

Zoot Ultra Kalani 2.0 $140

There aren’t many training shoes that most runners can lace up and love, but the Zoot Ultra Kalani 2.0 may be one of them. Its UltraFit upper provides a glove-like fit for both wide and narrow feet. It has the cushioning some runners need without the mushy feeling others can’t stand, while the CarbonSpan+ midsole offers unobtrusive stability. The Ultra Kalani 2.0 is also relatively light, which all triathletes can appreciate. Zootsports.com
