The opinions of a couple of people from 2015 would be more helpful than ones from 2009 though.

Is Sweatshop damaging its brand?

Oops, I think I meant USA Pro not LA Pro! It's not a running brand, more like cheap stuff for women to wear in the gym.

Favourite flavour of running energy gel?

SIS pink grapefruit! 

Adidas Adizero Tempo Boost 7

Posted: 14/02/2015 at 18:11

I wear Adizero Tempo, mainly for races/speedwork. What I like about them is that, while offering some support, they are streamlined and lightweight. From what I can tell, the 'Boosted' version is heavier and doesn't look as slick, which negates the whole point of the shoe. I tried out a Boost shoe once and didn't find them that comfy. So it's either a case of buying older Adizero Tempos or finding a new, comparable, shoe. Any suggestions welcome!

I don't know, will he make more money if Sweatshop becomes just another Sports Direct and loses customers who want good quality kit? Isn't that why business owners keep brands distinct from one another? Their website still claims to be 'independent' and 'specialist' and talks all about Chris Brasher. No mention of Sports Direct at all. Surely they can't have it both ways...

Thanks, Muttley. That's a very illuminating discussion. Also pretty depressing when you think what a good shop Sweatshop used to be. Even if I go to the website it tells me the most popular items in women's road shoes are three Karrimor styles. Pull the other one! I doubt I will be shopping there any more, nor ordering stuff from the website if there's a charge for collecting it from the store. They are also still claiming to be the UK's 'largest specialist independent running retailer' on the website. Surely that is blatantly untrue?

Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's not what I go to buy in Sweatshop. If I wanted that type of stuff I would just go to Sports Direct itself. And it means there's a lot less room to sell the nicer (in my opinion) gear.

It's lucky this isn't Jogger's World then.

running tights

I did buy a pair once which fell down before I'd even got to the end of the road in my first run in them. I took them back to the shop and now I try to buy ones with a cord at the waist so I can adjust them if I need to.

Now that it is stocking so much Karrimor and La Pro gear?
