Cyber Boy - are the Kayano just the Koji but with a new name?

Ahh, gonna have to pass on that one. Anyone else know? By the way I was referring to the latest winter 2002 Kayano 8 not the 7.

Koji are the replacement for another one of their older MC shoes

Ah, not too bad a report on the 2070's. This pleases me as I initially ordered 1070's and decided to upgrade yesterday. I am now looking for decent socks - any comments on this by anyone? I generally but 1000mile but am looking to try another brand.

Falkes are nice and feel rather uncomplicated. I was a Thorlo man until I decided I liked them!

Thorlo socks are the best I have ever used, and I've tried a lot of socks in my time!

Those 1000 mile socks are absolute crap - steer clear!

Yep me too Jon, used Throlo for past 18 months now uttrerly sold on Falkes. I have the below ankle UL5. Steve, these socks, if you haven't seen them, are shaped for your left/right foot. Give em a go.

Kayano for me every time. Tried a couple of the other Asics but can't beat the Kayano and their worth every penny.

Wouldn't wear anything other than Asics either they are the best even though they look a bit dodgy. My daughter takes the piss but she is 17 and trainers aren't for running in as far as she's concerned!

Cyberboy! I haven't seen those ones! I like the Thorlo short ones, but only have RU3 Falkes
15/10/2002 at 17:05
Wolfy! I think the Kayano's look really nice tell her!
15/10/2002 at 17:10
Thanks Jon, I agree but her response will be "yeah they look great when you're legging it round a muddy field, not for going down the pub in"!!!!

Pah! and they only cost £105!! Damned if I'm going to buy new trendy shoes when I have a perfectly good looking pair of run in trainers!

She'll learn when she has to pay for em!!!

Jon, I got my UL5s from sweatshop if that helps.
15/10/2002 at 19:36
Ta... Think short socks look better... Ahem, nd of course perform better!!!

I will try the UL5s from Sweatshop. I never even thought of wearing below ankle, but sounds good to me.

You can get the below ankle socks from Thorlo too. I bought a pair from Northern Runner the day before the GNR, and wore them during the race.

Not a single blister - and that speaks volumes considering it was my first half!

Go on JR, give a pair of Falkes a go at some point. They fit like a glove, urr, but without the fingers, if you know what I mean.

In fairness, my old Thorlos socks have done around 1500 miles and no signs of wear.
