Trouble finding Adidas trainers

I hadn't tried M&M but just checked and it looks a similar situation there. Will try in the future though, thanks.

Yep, size 10.5. Must be popular!

Perhaps the fact that you could pick them up easily for £60-65 has led adidas to the conclusion that they were oversupplying the market and by reducing availability they hope to shift more new models at RRP?

Anyway, the main thing is I now have a pair of red adios for London

Trouble finding Adidas trainers

Just wondering if anyone else has come across this or knows of any explanation.

Since about 2012 I've been training and racing in Adidas Boston and Adios trainers. It used to be you could shop around for these with about 3 different colours available at different prices since they changed them every 6 months.

Recently though, they seem to becoming rare as rocking horse sh*t. I tried 7 online retailers this morning and only 2 had Adios in my size and none had Bostons, so I'm resorting to scraping around ebay and amazon.

So, having just bought the last pair of Adios from Sweatshop in my size and tracked down a pair of Bostons from an Amazon retailer, does anyone have any idea why this is? Are there stock issues? Have they been discontinued? Is a replacement due?

Eleta - I think what you're looking for is a hip flask 

I only usually take water for long runs 15m+ on warm days and tend to use a camelbak backpack with a hose containing 1-1.5l of water.

Well that's pretty bad news! Question marks over my HM and 10K PB.

There's 5 or 6 notable races on that list attracting quality fields so there'll be lots affected.

So apparently a guy dressed as a shoe saw Natasha go under a barrier *link*

I doubt it will happen but I hope she makes a public apology!

Can you warn us when you link the s*n?


I clicked on it before I realised it was that rag.

My reading of the GFA page on the London Marathon web page is that the GFA times are now set for 2017.

Championship runners all get 2 chips - presumably just to make sure they're picked up since prizes and qualification spots could be at stake.

Thanks both. I'll get London out the way then start some accommodation research!
