Earlier this week I was in Philadelphia and on my way back I stopped by the Nike Outlet in Perryville.Those of you who know me personally, know that at one point if there was a hot Nike release or limited edition shoe, I had it, and probably multiple pairs. However, I’ve grown out of that phase and the thought of spending more than $80 on a sneaker now petrifies me. I guess you do get wiser with age, or maybe its just cheap.
I had been looking for a pair of cross-training shoes, as my basketball shoes weren’t cutting it when it came to treadmill running and some of the more intensive stuff I plan to do this summer. I spent about 20 minutes in the store before I came across a pair of the Nike Air Edge Trainer 09′s. I googled reviews on the shoes on my blackberry, and after reading a couple of reviews I purchased them. They were just what I was looking for, light weight, comfortable, air sole, and responsive and at $59.99 they were right in my budget.
Some of the key features the shoe offers are:
- A mesh upper for breathability,
- Strategically placed synthetic overlays for lightweight support,
- External gilly lacing system for a secure fit,
- Encapsulated full-length Air sole unit for cushioning.
I’m a big believer in having the right equipment when it comes to working out, and a good pair of sneakers is a vital part of any workout regime, as most workouts start with your feet. I’ve worn them twice this weekend, and they have performed marvelously.A pair of these are probably scarce however the 2010 model is out, with similar reviews and can be found at the following retailers
You can also check out eBay and maybe find a couple of the ’09 models for sale.
