New Stuff Update

We finally received the new shoes for Fall/Winter 2014!

The Mizuno Wave Hitogami has a new cool, blue colourway.  The Hitogami has been super popular this season.  It is a neutral lightweight trainer that offers a touch of support thanks to Mizuno’s proprietary Wave Plate in the outsole.  Enough cushioning for runners to easily tackle distances up to 21km (or further), but with the responsiveness that you would want in a race day shoe.

Sorry ladies, the local distributor for Mizuno dropped the women’s Wave Hitogami this season.  We’re still trying to get our hands on some, so fingers crossed!

The Wave Hitogami retails for $169.

The much anticipated Saucony Kinvara 5 also finally reaches our shores!  Well, the men’s model at least.  The ladies’ K5 is slated to be available in early October.

The K5 is latest iteration of Saucony’s beloved 4mm heel drop lightweight trainer.  The K5 sees a change in the upper from the K4 (cue the cheers & applause).  The K5 has a softer, breathable mesh that translates to a slightly wider fit in the toe box.  The outsole has seen the introduction of a few more spots of high durability rubber in those high wear areas for improved durability.  What might split the Kinvara lovers is the fact that the K5 seems a bit stiffer than the previous versions.  While runner’s that gravitate to the Kinvara for it’s ‘natural’ feel might be slightly disappointed, I think the perceived increase in support will encourage more runners to pick up the K5 for it’s increased versatility.

The K5 retails for $159.

Last but not least, the guys at Vamos have released another 3 models of their very eye-catching socks.

The “Maria”, right most in the picture, is women’s specific.

All products are available in store.  See you soon!
