New shoes with silly names

When I drove past Smiths Sport Shoes on Dominion Road last Sunday I noticed a sign up for 50% off. Occasionally they have these good sales where older lines get cleared.

I lucked out and picked up a pair of Brooks Vapor 7's for $99NZ. My size US13 is unusually popular it seems and it was the last pair left. Maybe we are a nation of people with big feet?

They shop assistant told me this is a good shoe for moderate pronation. Since they were cheap I splashed out on some new running socks (3 pairs for $25).

So far I have gone for two runs in them and they feel pretty good.

People that name shoes get to have fun. Vapor doesn't sound as "cool" as my last pair of Brooks which were called Adrenaline. Mind you they were 2.5 times the price.

The pair of Asics I'm retiring look like they have been through the wars. I'll post a picture soon of the damage a little toe can do.

Is it true what they say about men with big feet?
