We are proud to open up the Beta LRC Better Running Shoe site to you all.
https://www.letsrun.com/shoes/ is the site.
Our goal is to help you find better running shoes. We want to improve the running shoe data by helping you find the shoes that are best for you by letting you see what shoes others runners like you like best. It's time to bring data from thousands of other runners and their running characteristics into picture.
Take a look here https://www.letsrun.com/shoes/ and we have places for you to comment, but feel free to post in this thread as well and to email me at [email protected]
Here's the description on the link above:
It is time to improve the shoe buying process. We are proud today to announce the Beta version of LetsRun.com Better Running Shoe Database to the LRC Community.
Think of it as a Yelp or Trip Advisor for running shoes, but better. We help you find a better running shoe by linking running shoe ratings and reviews to the type of runner you are.
Are you a rail-thin, high mileage marathoner with a neutral stride? A low mileage weekend 5k runner who overpronates? This site will tell you the shoes runners like you love and hate.
Want to see what the LRC community thinks of the Nike Pegasus+ 31? That is easy to do. Want to see if runners like it more than its precessor, the Nike Pegasus+ 30? Check out our data on that shoe and compare them.
Want to see how female marathoners under 5'5" who pronate rate the Saucony Kinvara 5? You can do that too as well. Want to see which shoes people who ran in the Asics GEL-Kayano 20 switched to? And which they liked best? You can do that too.
Get started with our Shoe Finder tool. Enter in some characteristics about yourself and see what shoes similar LRC visitors liked. Curious about a specific shoe? Type in the name of your favorite shoe above, select it, click Go! as see how LRC readers rated the shoe.

A big thanks to Erik for making this come to fruition. I hope you like the site as much as I do, but it is a work in progress and this is just the first step of the run.
