Record breaking Marathon shoes...
I came across an article today with photos of the shoe as shown below. When I went looking for prices, I expected to find something in the range of several hundred Euro..........a bit like the Chanel ones ;o)
I thought surely they must be so specialised that they are really expensive but no, they can be bought for about €80-€90, much the same as plenty of other running shoe. I should point out however that these are racing shoes as opposed to the more usual shoes used for training. Still though, it seems strange that the ordinary runner can use the exact same type of shoe for races as the fastest Marathon runners in the world. Perhaps it brings home the point that you really don't need to spend huge amounts of money to get started in running. Spend the money on a good pair of runners and everything else is optional.
