Evaluation We bet you didnt know you needed a pair of these beauties. (We also bet you wont be able to find them in many running shops near you.) Theyre sprinters training shoes, for those days when you need to do 8 x 200m on a track but cant bear the thought of spikes. Theyre featherlight, they have a lovely suede inner for wearing with no socks, an adjustable strap for supporting your midfoot, and knobbly tread that is angled to give you the best grip when youre hammering round a curve. The inside of the shoe says Engineered to harness the power of the curve. Designed specifically for power-based sprinters, so the chances are that not many of our readers or writers really need them. But, still, theyd make a good ironic gift for your lazy friend.
