Looks like the black Nike Free Run Commuters were delivered today. The slate grey will be here next Thursday. Ordered from 3 different sites and managed to get all three pair for under $200.

Puma is having a massive 30% sale right now. You'll have to go find the latest promo code.

Last week I ordered two pairs of shoes for $74 shipped. I regret not having ordered more!

They are really form fitting on the feet. The back of them has this thick elastic on them that keep them very snug. I've read lots of reviews where people were complaining that the size runs small but they seem fit me just fine. As for slipping on and off, the laces aren't really laces and aren't really even needed. No laces to be tied as the slide mechanism just slides up which is awesome. Usually the first thing I do with shoes is lace them up to where they are comfortable to slide off and on then tie a knot on the last hole and cut the laces off. I hate having the laces bouncing around while walking or having 12' of extra; that was one of the points that sold me on these. They are extremely comfortable and just feel like a padded sock around your feet. Planning on wearing a pair of them to the gym tonight for cardio to see the difference between these and my adidas that I normally wear. I usually do an hour to an hour and half of cardio, this should give me a pretty good test of comfort factor.

"Oh sir! It's only a tiny little thin one... it's only wafer thin."

One of the more grotesque Monty Python skits, but the dialogue cracks me up.

This one as well.



Carry on, back to shoes......nudge nudge

I like the pureboost because I feel slightly lower to the ground but still enough cushion for support. The ultraboost feel a little too plush for me ...

Nice! Hahaha! Man I truly believe that if more people knew just how comfortable UltraBoost is/are, they would never go back to any other brand for running or walking.

Speaking of Kicks... Who doesn't like a fresh clean pair OW white ones? Adidas got you covered with these throwback classics returning in very limited numbers:

I don't appreciate it: it looks like shit and feels pretty much the same (unstable/unfocused, like you kick in one direction and receive that "response" from just anywhere).

The best cushioning technology I know is Reebok's Hexalite. Not even DMX (the true, original I had, not the fake they reportedly make now - I haven't tried my new ones yet). I never tried any other brand though. Not interested. I wear Reebok for 25 years, tried Adidas only recently, after they'd put Reebok into it's grave and I'm not surprised they (supposedly) make Reebok fake their technologies now: nothing to compete with on their side.

Funny, I feel the same way about Reebok.....looking and feeling like shit that is.

I used to wear Reebok......then my momma got a job.

No wonder you didn't appreciate. I had to get a job myself: my first pair was what I spent my first money I had earned on.

Garage List
1. NMD
2. Ultraboost 19's (way comfier than last years design)
3. Yeezy 350
4. Nite Jogger
5. Prophere
6. EQPT Support

Can you tell I like Adidas? IMO they have been on fire since the NMD.
I like some of the redesigned Reeboks, but haven't bought a pair yet.

Edit: Also like 5 pairs of different Tubular X's.

I've just thought if it could be mandatory to shave one's legs to appreciate Adidas. No way I'd go that far! I own 4 pairs (3 kinds) now. They are high quality shoes, I like the Boa lacing, but that's just it. No emotions. And I love my summer Reebok ES22 I'm wearing now! Something similar looking has dropped off Adidas the other day: "ADIDAS ORIGINALS BY AW TURNOUT BBALL" (/"FUTURESHELL"). I don't like the colourways, trefoil turnover is sacrilege and I'd HATE promoting a name for my money . I'd choose mine every time.
