That's what my poor long, suffering hubby would say everytime we hit the sports store and I go, look and touch a new pair of shoes on display. It's automatic. I don't know whether it's the way the shoes are displayed but even if the shoes aren't on my eye-level, my attention would go to the newest, most striking and mostly most expensive pair of shoes there.
I was looking a pair of trail shoes and of course the ones I like are the ones with the most "blinding" colour - think bright purple with dash of lime green or pink; and it's equally "blinding" price tag too. LOL
Anyway, after trawling more than a dozen sports stores, and the fact that I might not need the trail shoes that bad yet, I got myself this pair of Nike running shoes instead. It is imperative for me to have one pair of running shoes that isn't so obviously "running shoes" i.e. white. That said, I was enthralled with a pair of Newton shoes that I tried at Key Sports. But at RM599, I'll take a rain check. ^^!
It's a marked-down priced shoes (horror! kakaka) and for the time being I'll use it mainly as a walking shoe during my vacation. Though I hope to throw in a couple of runs in the next two weeks too. ^^
And for Raimie; who told me after the IOI Community Run that he wishes to join running races too, we got him this pair of shoes.
I wish I had registered both of us to the Desa Park City Run. The next race that allows children participation which Raimie can enter will be the Larian Jom Kitar Semula 2011 on Dec 18th, a few days we come back from our vacation. I wanted to enter, but Zaini's been keeping quiet about it so I don't know whether he agrees for Raimie to join the Run too. Fingers (and toes) crossed! xD
