October 29, 2021
Got myself a new pair of running shoes! I took a long time pondering between full-on winter shoes and more trail-friendly shoes, ultimately went with the latter.
There's not that many options from where to choose from available in the shops here in a small city where I live. Salomon is a known brand that many runners seem to love so when I saw a good sale on their shoes with enough pairs in stock to go and test them out I went for it.
I like the feeling and fit of the shoe, but the quick lace system is pretty stupidly broken by design in this model. The last part of the lace goes directly over the lip that's meant for tucking the extra part in, so you can't really do it after you tighten the laces -- what an idiotic design! It's not the end of the world but I was surprised that a brand like Salomon could make that kind of a design error.
I hope these shoes will do better during the winter time than my old shoes that were abysmal in slippery and snowy conditions. Time will tell.
