Awesome deal! Came here yesterday and they only had size 9 in stock and was gutted I missed out. Just tried agin today on teh off chance and they have loads of sizes back in stock! I used to have a pair of ride 9 (in fact I had 3) then tried other running shoes but nothing really compared to them. My current Hokas are ready to retire :)
Thanks for getting back to me, really appreciated. Gonna bite and try them out
Delivered and confirmed true to size. Having wide feet fit is good but I don't like the fit. I find the rear of this trainer is quite low so feels like it slips when I run compared to my cumulus 22. Not for me but I struggle to find any trainers tk fit me well as I have a square foot (lol) . Gonna try some hokas.
Thanks OP! Have worn Saucony’s for a number of years (I run ~150k a month and get through a lot!) and these are my go-to shoes. Brilliant price!
Oh, i see the Guides are also £75 for those who over-pronate and require stability.

Has anyone bought from this site before? I'm interested in trying these, but I've never used Up and Running before
As well as exercise I also use them for talking to mates when gaming while allowing the game audio to still come from speakers. Though I am tempted to upgrade to the aeropex for the smaller size and longer battery life.
I love mine you forget your wearing them, absolutely no impedience or worry about them falling out and sound is more than loud enough to make them the go to in all circumstances not just running.
Amazing, need music to train but no way I'd wear buds if I'm near traffic. They're nowhere near audiophile quality, but I can't find anything else that let's me hear everything around me clearly as well as my music.
They are great for running. You can listen to music / podcast and still hear what's going on around you. Plus they fit to your head really well. Connect quickly and decent battery.

For everyone's info I had a conversation with Brooks regarding their wide fit trainers. The difference between Men's normal D width and Men's wide 2E width is an additional of 1cm of upper material.
Purchased, specialist running shoe reviews show this a recommended choice,thanks (y)
Economics, they were available way cheaper. I usually run in a standard Ghost so can't comment on the adrenaline but if your for is overhanging I'd say give the wide fit a try.
Yes that’s helpful, it sounds like it really is noticeably wider. I didn’t know if it was one of those quite subtle things, or whether there was actually a measurable difference. Thanks for the response. If only the computing crowd were as friendly as the running crowd on here!

Thanks for sharing your first deal with us @th717 and congrats on a hot deal
This comparison might help a little more. Although it's a different BackBeat model, the ear tips are more or less the same as the 3150s. By the looks of things, the bass is hard to get in bone conduction headphones
I haven't tried bone conduction headphones so couldn't say myself. This article talks about some pros and cons of bone conducting headphones - they suggest it's hard to keep a stable fit when walking let alone anything more vigorous. The BackBeats are very stable from personal experience, ear hooks keeps them firmly in place so the sound quality is at least consistent. It won't be as good as noise isolating headphones (that block the ear canal) but that's the tradeoff for the additional safety I suppose. I can't compare the sound quality of these to that of bone conducting headphones but I can say that the BackBeats still sound very good.
Are these any better than none conducting headphones?

Garmin Forerunner 245 Slate Grey - £199.99 delivered @ Up & Running£199.99£219.999% off
Although you can get the 645 for £199 at Argos this is the best price i have found for the Forerunner 245. Berry and Slate Grey available. Hopefully Black Friday itself will bri… Read more
not gonna happen - the 235 has been out for years and still commands a decent price so the 245 wont touch this price, certainly not this year far too new. Just wish Garmin would tidy up its product range - or even a really clear chart showing featuresets would be helpful. My wife has the 245 music got it from tobydeals for £220, nice clear display screen and loads of things to analyse !
Many thanks. Ordered
Feature wise the 645 is a model up and has music, NFC and altimeter. The 245 has a pulse Ox sensor (which may or may not be useful depending who you listen to), its also a newer model with a newer chipset and longer battery life, but you have to pay more for music.
What’s the difference between 245 and 645?
My 645 generally lasts about 6 days with about 3 to 4 one hour runs
