Dropped by the ASICS booth at the Singapore Expo to have a look at the Trail Running shoes they have (at 60% discount, what do we have to lose?? ok, it's just an excuse :) ).
Was looking for a pair to help me go through 100km at The North Face 100km Thailand on 2 Feb 2013, although i have (not anymore, after this purchase) "only" two pairs of trail running shoes. :) Well, it's always good to have more options so we try out. I'm quite sure many will agree :)
This pair, which has a 'different' feel from my other 2 'lower to the ground' pairs, provides a more cushioned underfoot feeling, as advised by my friend, Kelvin Tung, the pro in ASICS shoes :)
This 'cushioned' feeling will be 'tested' on 2 Feb 2013 in Thailand, by my feet to see if it will be the 'weapon of choice' for the 'more exciting' Lantau 100km on 16 March 2013.
Ok, the all-essential feet test is carried out next.
A condition laid down by my feet before any purchase of shoe is to go ahead.
Upon slipping my 'sockless' feet into the Trabuco & standing, i could 'feel' what Kelvin talked about. My, it was Soft & a tad Bouncy. PERFECT, my feet told me :)
