For the past couple of weeks now, I’ve been looking for a new running shoes as I’ve been using the same running shoes since July for both my training and actual runs. If my running shoes could speak, it will complain to me that it’s tired and need some rest. Unfortunately, I got that running shoes for a discounted price so I got the shock of my life when I’ve looked into some of the latest “state-of-the-art” running shoes from top brands and found how expensive these shoes are. Just recently, I received an email from World Balance informing about their latest running shoes which is geared for long distance runners. This is called the World Balance Hurdle. According to World Balance:
Building on the success of its ENDURE line, World Balance is upping itself in the long-distance shoe category as it unveils HURDLE, a new line of performance shoe for men designed for long-distance running. The shoe is a product of the innovative footwear technology developed by World Balance that gives its wearer supreme lightweight experience which is ideal for 21 and even 42 K races.
I have yet to find out whether, the World Balance Hurdle is really as awesome as the PR says. I might just find out soon enough when I get to try this running shoes out. One thing that will definitely appeal to us, Pinoy runners who are in a tight budget is the fact that the World Balance Hurdle retails for only, Php 1,999.
