Recently when I was in Sydney, I made a trip to the Asics flagship store, located in the Queen Victoria Building.
As a lover of Asics shoes, it is my idea of running shoe heaven.
Here, you can get different shoes that the regular shoe stores do not carry. I had been in the market for a new pair of “long run/marathon” shoes since April. I have been running in the Asics Gel Nimbus, but am still not 100% sold on the latest edition (the 15’s). I’d been doing my research, and liked the sound of the Asics Gel Skyspeed. Slightly lighter than the Nimbus, but suitable for similar runners.
I tried them on, and liked them instantly. I bought the shoes. I have done a few runs in them so far, including 31km yesterday. I plan on running the Mudgee marathon in them this weekend, and a shoe review will follow.
