Subarus of the shoe world?

There’s nothing like a new bit of gear. I picked up a new pair of trainers from Moti today, Mizuno Wave Nirvanas – an updated, more cushioned version of what I have been running infor a few years. I reckon they look pretty fast! Although maybe not quite as good-looking as Hauling my carcass’s.

Haruki Murakami writes about his Mizuno’s that he likes that fact the brand “doesn’t have any extra bells and whistles” and I’d agree, I love my old pair and already love the new ones even though I’ve just been wearing them to pad around the flat so far! He also calls them the Subaru of the shoe world – “no gimmicks, no sense of style, no catchy slogan”. But I wouldn’t go quite that far… I think they look sparky enough for me.
