Today's Tuesday on the Run is all about dream sponsors. I have my favorite brands, but if I could choose, then I'd chose a shoe sponsor. My clothing pieces hold up better than the shoes I run in. Right now I'm in Asics, but as mentioned in the last couple weeks, I may look at other brands this summer. I got new Asics that I found on sale, and I did have my first run in them this past Sunday. Even walking in them is like walking on clouds. There's lots of cushion that I can already tell is lacking in the shoes I'm currently running in.
The reason why I choose a shoe sponsor is because I keep reading about elites designing their shoes with their sponsor. How great is that? That could mean I wouldn't have to worry about shoes changing between models. I could tell the sponsor what I (or my feet) want and what I don't want. Colors, material, anything. OK, in my dream world. Mostly I just want to get rid of shoe companies changing models so much it forces me to test other brands. I've already been down that road, and it was a little frustrating.
