|UA Charged Bandit 2 (L) and UA Speedform Slingshot (R)|
She had also brought along a few pairs of her running shoes to show me and we talked about running shoes for her race. The pair she'd chosen seemed rather heavy and clunky so I suggested the pair she was wearing then looked more suitable. She said that the UA Speedform Slingot she was wearing was more suitable for 5 km and below runs. She seemed a little hesitant about wearing them for the marathon as she thought she'll require more cushioning for the race.
She took them off and showed me and I actually tried them on and said that these are the kind of shoes I'd run with usually. I explained why and then suggested she try them for a longer run. She then said she would try and get me a pair as she was sponsored by Under Armour.
So today Marie and Wilfred Mong, Brand Communications Manager from Under Armour came to our clinic and passed me 2 pairs of Under Armour shoes to try. The same pair Marie is now going to use for her New York City marathon the Speedform Slingshot and the Charged Bandit 2.
A big thank you to Marie and Wilfred.
