Da Ya Think I’m Sexy - thanks Mr Stewart

Da Ya Think I’m Sexy - thanks Mr Stewart

So today I am in Arnhem, buying trainers. Because that’s what you do when you live between Italy and the UK!

What’s a girl to do? Brooks Defyance 9 in silver and pink or Saucony in Marine and Citron. With some prompting from Mr JCR, I bought both...as both were sexy. Never thought I’d say that about trainers. How life changes.

Tomorrow I do a tourist run in Arnhem..... big issue of the day, which pair to wear?

Blue or Pink - votes please!

I didn’t like the socks so didn’t buy those....

Happy running everyone.

Jan, please try never to connect a great choice of shoes with Rod's poor choice of careeer.

I was there a few weeks back but missed the shoe shop . watch out I thought the traffic was a bit full on and you need eyes in your backside. Take care 👍.

Love Rod 😀

Ooh - I like the marine and citron - sounds like a fabulous seafood dish! Good luck with the run. I'm sure you'll have Rod the God's words echoing in your brain as you go round!

Well I saw the headline and two casually discarded pairs of shoes and wondered what inappropriate personal information might follow in the post. Just a shopping trip, apparently! 😀

Hahaha, yes the socks do look as though they’d been abandoned somewhat gaily...

surely, surely, we need to know the rest of your outfit for a fully informed sartorial choice - or are you building that around the sexy shoes? In which case oooh it's tough ... blue I think edges it for me!

I think you should tear up Arnhem by wearing one of each.

I love the blue one and my vote goes to Marine(s). But pink and lovely too. Do the rest of the outfit depends on the chosen trainers?

Blue won but pink on Saturday, tragically only one running outfit and they are both black and grey, no fluoro anywhere... but I did see a nice fluoro running tight in the same shop.....

You should wear at least fluoro head band or something similar ;)

Sorry, i’ve Only just seen this post. Both pairs look fab. I hope they were as comfortable as they look.

I think I may need to treat myself to new pair soon as there have been a few footwear photos on here lately. Not that I’m envious ...

The Saucony feel ‘harder’ under foot but are soft on the uppers. They made a clacking sound which was great when I was doing Mud and Tiger Feet... the Brooks seemed exactly like my old pair. My other Brooks were 2.5 years old and I kept getting tired feet, which I think was inadequate sole cushioning. So it was time for a change, I am alternating them. Today it will be Saucony for a cheeky 5k.
