Having a hard time deciding what colors to get? I'm surprised you only have gone through 3 pairs so far this year.



Is the "Must. Resist." in the title for not getting all the colors at one time?

If you never bragged about you getting free shoes, you would still have the annual $1k shoe budget as your personal necessary spending.

See, did Greg state anywhere he was paid in cash in his Korean trip? "It was all about friendship and culture exchange." said Greg. lol!

My 3 pairs from the fall had plenty of life on them, and I also purchased a pair of Lunaracers and Mayflys outside of my usual allotment. And won a pair of Mizunos.

Well, if you DO get them all, think about the mix-and-match possibilities!

Come on, Dave, just do it. The more Nikes they sell, the more I get to test! (Well, sorta.)

Actually, that would be kinda cool. One color on the right foot and a different color on the left.

I gave up on tracking my shoe mileage in those 5 columns, partially because I felt bad bugging you all the time and partially because 5 just columns is not nearly enough.

I just added a new tab to the spreadsheet with all my kicks.

Hmm...I have 7 columns on mine but based on your track record (or should I say shoe fetish), I don't think 7 would have cut it either.

By the way, it never bothered me.

Good. Because you're about 2 months away from an email asking to insert more rows.



I really think Nike should offer a lot discount if I order all 6. Something like $450 for the 6.

450.00 for all 6 would be a good deal. If they came out with that I think I would be buying 6.

Funny thing tonight Lisa said she doesn't want to run in anything other then her Lunar Racers. I guess it's safe to say she loves them.

How do they compare to the Adios or Tempos? I love the oragne even if they don't match my singlet.

I think the biggest thing I notice about the Lunar is how soft they feel. It is hard to describe the feeling but there is no doubt that my foot feels much different when it hits the ground in the Lunar compared to other shoes. Also they are lighter then the Adios and the other thing I think that I'm going to like about the Lunar is that I think they will last for more miles. The one thing I didn't like about the Adios is the bottom tread, I found myself really going through that shoe really fast. I can't remember the number of miles on them (I know I have to get better tracking that) but the bottoms of my Adios's are warn complete down. I know I haven't put nearly as many miles on them as I have other light weight trainers. With that being said I still love the Adios and think it is still a great shoe to race in, just have to watch how much you train in them.

You know Nick I have somewhat wide feet also. The Lunar 2's didn't work for me at all. I had never tried the original Lunar Racer until they came out with them again. I have to say that I find these fit me a little better, I have only used them on short runs of 8 miles but they feel pretty good. I will have to see how they work on a longer run but you might want to go try them out. Also the other you can do is maybe try a half size bigger and see how that feels. Just a thought.

I have tried out the originals and the Lunar 2s. Both were too narrow, even at a half size larger. Let me know how the new ones feel after you put in a couple of longer runs with them. Maybe, I'll try to give them another shot.
