Test Drive

I had the opportunity to take out theses for a test drive with my Tuesday evening running/drinking club.

The local New Balance store and rep brought out a few of their minimalist shoes and racing flats for our group to try.

This was a great idea since I wouldn't purchase a pair to try out and possibly not like!

Well I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have any issues with the MT10. I did keep the run to just two miles and I was definitely pounding the pavement. I did feel like my right knee was taking a little more than normal pounding but nothing to stop the run. I finished and was able to walk, which sometimes isn't the case.

So I may be following the flock over to the minimalistic craze.....

I'm not sure i will RUN in minimalist shoes myself, but my experience walking in them has been positive. I think the kinvaras might be as non-traditional as i get. but who knows...

anyway. it's great that you got to give them a test run!

Flashy kicks!!

Test drives are the best - easy way to try out some shoes you otherwise wouldn't.
