New Kicks

Friday, February 24, 2012

I've owned a lot of sneakers in my life time and Asics have always been in the rotation, but I've never purchased the higher end of the that particular line of sneakers. I could never understand why one shoe could cost so much more than another in the same brand, and therefore couldn't justify the expense. Well... I stumbled across the last remaining pair of pink and light grey Asic Gels at DSW last weekend. They were clearance priced with an additional 70% off in my size! NICE - I scored a pair of Gels for $40! Woo hoo! My first pair of high end Asics.

So, my first opportunity to use them came last night. I put them on and walked around a bit. Still not understanding why they could have cost as much as their regular retail price, until after walking out of the house and onto the street. Suddenly, my feet were VERY HAPPY. Every step I took felt better than the one before. My feet were completely engrossed in velvety gel softness that made me want to take just one more step, just one more, ok really, just one more, ahhhh. I didn't want to stop walking. It felt so nice.

Highly recommended to anyone looking to buy a new pair of very comfy sneaks. I am now a believer that not all shoes are created equal. Take the Gels for a spin.

    Love a clearance sale, especially when it has anything to do with fitness! I'll try that brand out next time I buy shoes.

    Anything to get the lead out! Why didn't you notice how good they felt inside? Does the surface you're walking on make a difference?
