Okay – Dokay, another first run in a pair of shoes, I think this is about the 12th or 13th time this year that this has happened, so it is not anything, new, strange or overly exciting – or is it?
Nope – just another first run in a new pair of running shoes ;-).
For the 4th time this year it has been a new pair of Pearl Izumi’s, only this time it was the:
Yeah I know these are “old” news running shoes. They were great last year, but now that the brands have all released new models this year – who cares.
Supposedly with all the new releases by all the other brands so far this year, they have left Pearl Izumi way behind, because PI has chosen to have a 2 year release cycle.
Which made it seem as though one of their flagship shoes, the N1 Roads are no longer relevant.
Which is wrong.
Personally, I am in favor of a longer release cycle. It gives runners who might be completely happy with a style/model of running shoes an extra year in that shoe, instead of worrying if the “update” will screw-up their favorite shoes that they have searched so long for.
Which has happened all too often to me in the past.
