Window Shopping

My K-Swiss K-Ruuz 1.0 has now logged 393 kilometers as of this post. On most running forums, the average life span for racing flats (such as the K-Ruuz) will last between 150-300 miles or 240-480 kilometers.

While I'm still happy with my current K-Ruuz, it's time to look for a reliever especially that the upper is slowly showing signs of wear.

Yup, it's time to window shop for my next racing flat! ;-)

The candidates are (in no particular order):

1. K-Swiss K-Ruuz 1.5
      - heel-to-toe ratio of 10mm
      - PHP 4,600.00 (Secondwind Running Store)

2. Asics Hyperspeed 5
     - heel-to-toe ratio of 6mm
     - PHP 4,600.00 (Asics, The Olympic Village)

3. Merrell Road Glove
     - heel-to-toe ratio of 0mm (zero drop!)
     - not sure of the price but it's probably less than 5,000.00

4. Skechers GoRun
      - heel-to-toe ratio of 4mm
      - not sure of the price but it's probably less than 5,000.00


  1. You might want to consider the Hyperspeed 4. They are on sale at The Brick and got mine for 3k+. ;)

    1. whoa! need to go there and take a look! thanks Jan!

    2. Really, really great racing flats worn by Ryan Hall and by Macca during his 2010 Kona win. ;-)

  2. Your estimate is right as Merrell Road Glove was priced below P5,000. In fact it had been repriced from P4,195 to P3,355.
