Saucony Visions badly damaged my feet
If its so bad get it cazzed. Or get them to rename it to "generic footwear brand" but this was the funniest day in my forum history. It would be sad to see it go.
p.s. nicely boinged.
IM S - I was joking! We laughed at it too!
It does represent some of the stuff we get on a daily basis! However as with this example, it's always better if a neutral party can say what we probably shouldn't - you should see some of our replies which have been written but never sent.
Like when people don't realise that we might have a sense of humour too.....
This thread is hilarious!
I guess Mark Derry has never tried Nike shoes with air soles. I took my Air Max 180s with me on a skiing holiday so I could run and they reacted VERY badly to the altitude...yes, the bloody things ruptured. And I had temporarily mislaid the receipt, so the people at Niketown were unsympathetic albeit rather impressed at the huge distorted bulges in the air sole. They were only a month old!
I found the receipt about two months later. Typical.
Lessons to be learned from this:
- WARNING: Do not take Nike shoes to altitude.
- Clearly the Kenyans do not run in Nike shoes with air technology.
- Nike shoes with air technology are therefore not for serious runners*.
I run in Saucony at the moment
* actually I still do rotate wearing Nike Air Max 180s. Because they are bouncy and I like them. But damn Nike all the same.
WARNING WARNING WARNING.
Sorry I've taken a short break (3 years) I went away to Tibet in an effort to find myself, did a couple of short 10k's on the way and failed to heed one of my own warnings, i don't want to cause you any unecessary distress by going into the gory details, suffice to say STAY AWAY FROM RUNNING MACHINES - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
I have a case pending against Hilton Hotels so I hope you can understand that I'm unable to biase my case at this stage with a full account. All I'll say is that a snotty nosed managers explanation that that was the first time he had ever seen a stuck stop button just didn't cut it, 2 weeks in traction and a permanent limp couldn't be washed away by such a weak apology.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED - AVOID RUNNING MACHINES
I'll be back...........
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
