Few More Cool Products

I forgot to mention two products that we got in recently that are really something to check out. First the Nike Free 5.0!

Now this isn't a brand new shoe but it is new for us and we are excited. The Free is such a unique shoe because it is not really built to actually run in more than once maybe twice a week. The key to this shoe is the wear it around casually throughout several days and it will actually make your feet and ankles stronger. It's is built to simulate walking barefoot on grass, to allow the foot to bend and flex naturally. This will make the foot stabilize itself over time and make you stronger! But remember! Not a lot of running in this shoe! Think of it as more of a training tool, not a running shoe! The Nike Free 5.0 at Fleet Feet, for you to try! Check them out!

Next we have the Oakley Jawbone (my over all favorite new product of 2009)...if you follow the blog you will remember me mentioning these a while back when i first saw them on the faces of a few pro cyclist in the Giro back in May. Oakley has always been quite revolutionary with their shades and designs but these, i am convinced, are a milestone in optical design, ease of use, lens function, and all around sweetness.

Here is the deal. I could do my best to explain to you why they are so awesome. How the lenses are super easy to switch and how they are so light you forget your wearing them. Then I could tell you how they come with two sets of lenses, a hard case, and a cleaning bag, and how they actually have a hinge on them to making replacing the lenses easier than ever and without visual distortion. I can tell you that the lenses are vented and fit perfectly with a helmet or under a running visor. Yeah, i could...but what i really should do is tell you to watch this:

Off Runnin'...and Summer Go Fast Shoes

You can say that we have been a bit lax when it comes to updating the store blog. You would be right. But after all it is summertime and we have been quite busy collectively putting in miles on top of miles before, after, and even during store hours! Then of course with all of your love and support for us, there has not been too much down time at the store either! Its a good thing! So between running, racing, triathloning (my favorite non-word) and keeping all of you in the best shoes and apparel money can buy...we have not been super consistent on the blog! Our apologies.
Now lets get excited with some new shoes that have just been put on the wall. I call them your summer "go fast" collection! Whether your a student putting in your summer miles getting ready for XC season, a marathoner or halfer in the midst of summer training, a multisport freak looking to do/buy anything to make you faster or just a normal runner looking for something light and fast to kick around in, we have got a pretty cool collection for you! Now dont be confused, these are not flats, just your everyday trainers on a diet. A bit lighter, more flexible, and over all a littler jazzier!

Check em out...

Oh ya, I threw in my personal favs for our spike wearing student fasties too!
This season called for a dark horse to claim the top spot for XC spikes in my opinion. Amidst the Nikes and Adiddas's of the world I think Saucony has come out with some pretty rockin' spiked kicks. So if your a perenial wearer of the typical Nikes, do yourself a favor and throw on a pair of the Shay's or Kilkenny's to compair. You might just be suprised. The fit is snug, the weight is little and the look is very very cool! You might agree!

Other than the spikes, check out the Mizuno Precision and Brooks Ravenna. Both of these shoes are not too far away from their big brothers the Rider and Adrenaline/Infinity respectively. So for a bit more"go fast" and flexibilty for your next 5k, 10k or track workouts, these are some pretty sexy options! The other good news is that in general they all range about $5-$10 cheaper than their heavier counterparts . So like i said, next time your in, make sure to test out the lighter side of things! Afterall its summer time and summer time is go fast time!

Until next time...Sunshine.
