A major highlight was going to OnlineShoes.com for a GIRL'S NIGHT OUT hosted by both, OnlineShoes.com and Brooks Shoes! I knew it would be fun but had no idea all the special things these great companies would do for us.
OnlineShoes has a killer view of the Space Needle and Lake Union...BEAUTIFUL! And after the crazy traffic and rain getting there (should've been a 7 minute ride, but ended up taking 45 minutes)...it was a relief to be welcomed by the wonderful ladies OnlineShoes.com and Brooks Shoes! Plus goodies sitting at each of our seats and food ready to go...PERFECT!
It was a small group of 15 bloggers and we got the VIP treatment! Great crew of ladies, might I add!
We were presented with some amazing Brooks information about the direction they are going with Marketing and an amazing presentation about their current shoes and the science behind them. A highlight was seeing a sneak peak at some shoes that won't be out for a while! You will be thrilled with what's coming, keep an eye out!
A few of the shoes we checked out:
The first two are part of the Pure Project! I have owned Pure Cadence since November and they are my favorite shoes! I loved my Brooks Adrenaline's (and still do) and didn't think I could ever wear a shoe like the Cadence, but was shocked to find them extremely comfortable, very supportive and now I never want to take them off!
Experience a joy ride for the senses when lightweight design meets killer comfort in the PureFlow. For runners who love the feel of free feet but count on cushion to go the distance, this shoe strikes the perfect balance. Breathable on top, flexible underneath, and altogether awesome looking.
Light on materials doesn't mean light on technology with the PureCadence. Experience the liberating feel of lean, lightweight design with stability innovations like a reinforced heel that cradles the foot, and landing zone pod that encourages a midfoot strike. And for all you shoe geeks, introducing the Internal PDRB, a soft density ramp strategically placed in the midsole that guides the foot through a smooth and stable transition.
This twelfth iteration of our most popular shoe is all about taking what’s great and making it even better. Adrenaline junkies can expect the same revered fit and feel with added upgrades like more mesh for breathability, a friction-resistance heel, and a crash pad that encompasses more strides.
Go ahead, spoil your feet. Slip them into the perfectly plush, incredibly balanced, Glycerin 10. We’ve designed the forefoot with enhanced flexibility for an effortless toe-off in every step. An updated saddle hugs the unique shape of your foot, while a full-length Brooks® DNA midsole customizes cushion to your individual stride. A luxurious ride from heel to toe, your feet will feel like a million bucks.
The Ghost 5 is so supremely smooth and impeccably balanced, it’s scary. We took the best of the award-winning Ghost 3 and 4 designs, built in new innovations, and then merged it all with striking colors and patterns. This shoe hits the sweet spot for a wide range of Neutral runners with a finely crafted Caterpillar Crash Pad and anatomical Brooks DNA.
Here is the sneak peak of the SECRET SHOES...shhh, don't tell anyone I showed you, Ok!
And they let us take home a few, SWEET, AMAZING things...We were shocked and totally STOKED to get 2-pairs of Brooks Shoes...I needed a new pair of Cadence and Adrenaline's...PERFECT! Thank you Brooks Shoes and OnlineShoes.com. Can't wait to WEAR THEM!
We also got a VIP Potty pass, which if you ahve been to RnR...you know how nice it is to have this pass!
To say we were happy would be an understatement...just look at us...or at least Zoe and Kerrie...and all the shoe box's!
Great night...Thanks, Mel for getting this going!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU...
More to come about this wonderful weekend...Race Recap next!
