My love for my Brooks PureCadence1 knows know bounds, but Holy!Goodness! they wear out incredibly quickly. So today I went to search for an alternative and I was convinced to change brands to asics – a little more substantial underfoot and hopefully will last a little longer.
They’re amazingly lurid – I’ll certainly stand out on the road:
I went on a quick 3 km run this evening and they felt very different, still quite light but definitely more between foot and road. Fortunately, I have 30 days to try them out and can return them if they cause issues, which I think is pretty amazing (yay footlocker)
1The price on that link makes me stabby – they retail for AU$220 here, rather than the US$78.
