I was invited by Mr Manson Chew to attend Brooks Malaysia’s “Blog with Brooks” campaign launching orientation last weekend, together with other fellow runners cum bloggers, at Brooks outlet in The Curve. This campaign is to gather the runners cum bloggers help to promote their products in Malaysia.
Since I am a barefoot/minimalist runner, I was in deep thought that whether should I attend this orientation that organized by a shoe manufacturer. However, with the intention of meeting friends and see what Brooks could offer, I went for it. Luckily it was not disappointed to know that Brooks have their own minimalist shoe series – Pure Project. Although I could run a barefoot full marathon, but I can’t survive a 3km trail run with barefoot, that’s why all this while I am looking for a pair of minimalist trail running shoe, now Pure Grit is one of the trail shoes that caught my attention.
Another thing that enlighten me is their environmental friendly sole – BioMoGo, which is degrades faster than normal soles, the best thing is, they have shared this technology to other shoe manufacturers to contribute to a greener environment. (Yes I prefer products that are environmental friendly)
Brooks running shoes are generally not that cheap for normal people, but if you would like to get a pair of Brooks running shoes, in September 2012, bring any pair of your old shoes (yes, any pair – sandals, working shoes, boots, sneakers…) to any Brooks outlet, and buy a pair of new pair of Brooks running shoes with RM150 discount.
Runners are happy people, so after the orientation, it’s runner gathering fun time 🙂
