Sexy Sweet Kicks.

Fresh out of the box.
I picked up my new shoes Friday.

They're Nike Free Run 3's - an early Birthday present from the Wife.

I'm glad I was able to get them early, as they are a more minimal shoe than I normally run in, and I want to give my feet time to adapt to them before my training starts May 21st.

Aren't they sexy? I think they are sexy, sexy shoes.

I agonized over making the change from my Asics. I checked reviews, read online, went to the store and looked, and debated, debated, debated.

 I've ran in them twice now, a 3 and a 5 miler - so far they feel great, almost like they aren't even there. The difference in weight is amazing, and my Asics were pretty light to begin with.

Lookin' sassy!
As much as I like the look and feel of them, I'm giving them a week before they truly become "mine". If I have so much as a twinge of discomfort, I'm taking them back and going with my old model of footwear. Could that be considered a sign of paranoia? Maybe, but my feet are my life - I'm not taking chances.

If you happen to be in Victoria in the fall, and are watching the Marathon unfold, keep a lookout for these sexy shoes - and the sexy legs they are attached to - they'll probably be carrying a very tired runner.

But he'll look fucking fantastic.




  1. okay ... actual belly laugh when you repositioned the shoes to highlight the sass appeal.

    my crazy yellow mizunos were lighter than my brooks, but i can still lighten up even more. not sure what i'll be doing next for summer training. i kind of feel obligated to just get the same mizunos again...i love them so much.

  2. I agree with Triple are really modeling those shoes!
    I like them, I like the color. I am interested to see if they work out for you, I am so scared to go with a minimal shoe.
