3 miles with new shoes, what a joy. Judging from the bounce they gave my steps replacing the old pair was overdue.
But… What a lame color scheme! Why is the default color for women’s athletic gear pink? And these shoes aren’t even a hot pink. Give me back fluorescent yellow and aqua, please. That was the color scheme of the first pair of proper running shoes I got, same model as my new ones just a couple seasons older. How they looked definitely was a deciding factor then; besides weight, heel drop, breathability and all that other stuff you’re supposed to care about. I always wonder how many of these factors are pure marketing. At least with colors you know that it won’t really make a difference. I run the same even though my feet are clad in boring pink and grey.
