New year, new shoes. That sounds about right!
The first new shoes to hit our shelves for 2013 are from New Balance.
New Balance has been pushing the envelope the last few years. No longer are they known as the “army shoes” here in Singapore. New Balance regularly produces technologically advanced and good looking shoes.
Two traditional favourites, the RC1300 and RT1100, are back but with a couple of upgrades.
Both models are now built on New Balance’s Revlite cushioning platform which is 30% lighter than traditional compounds but results in no loss of cushioning.
sizes: US7.0 – US12.0
Another welcomed improvement is in the upper. There has been a big reduction in the amount of stitching. New Balance has instead gone for more breathable mesh paneling and seamless overlays (especially in the mid/forefoot region) that are likely to have been borrowed from the FantomFit upper that we saw on the RC1600 racer.
sizes: US 4.0 – US 12.0
Technical mambo jumbo aside, what this translates to is a significantly lighter shoe with a more comfortable and secure upper. The RC1300 is the Japanese inspired racer while the RT1100 is the versatile, lightweight race-trainer.
The RC1300 (RRP: $185) and the RT1100 (RRP: $175) are available now at The Runner’s Gait.
Compressport has rolled out a new size for their super popular R2 calf sleeves, new colours for their visors and a brand new Sweat Band 3D.Dot.
Great things also come in small packages
For athletes whose calf measures less than 30cm (lower end of the T1 size range), the new size T0 (zero) is the answer! The new T0 R2s are available in Black or Red.
Five time, Five time, Five time, Five time, Five time world champion
The visors have undergone a makeover, but are still available in White.
Finally, this is our chance to make sweat bands cool again!
The Sweat Band 3D.Dots uses the same great technology that’s in the Full Socks and Pro Racing Socks. The 3D.Dots wick away moisture better and dry faster than sweat bands of the past. SweatDots, AeroKnitting, MorphoFit, BacterioStatic…so many technologies, one simple pair of sweatbands.
Just a slight change to make it even easier to get here!

How’s the weekend going? Awesome we hope! We’ve got some new gear in store from NIKE, here’s a quick preview:
oooooh, pretty colours
The new LunaRacer+! They brought back the best of the original LunaRacer and threw up the bad from the LunaRacer+ 2. What you get is a shoe that fits great and delivers on any distance up to the marathon.
Want that barefoot feel without getting attacked by debris and pebbles on the road? The Nike Free Run+ 2 is super flexible that helps to strengthen your feet without the risk of actually being barefooted. With an improved overlay on the upper that increases the level of stability over the orginal version, the Nike Free Run+ 2 is an excellent training tool for all runners.
Everything a girl needs!
Shorts and more Shorts - depending on how short you like 'em
We’ve also got a bunch of socks, but those things don’t photograph well, so you’ll have to come by the store to see them for yourself.
Exciting stuff right? You bet!
