shoes mania ....

It was a great weekend for me. School holidays was here and thus, I had a good time bringing my family around on Saturday and Sunday. In fact, both were busy days. Went to Johor premium outlets, two Aeons malls, got my supplements at Amway Jb and had bat kut teh at the famous kota tinggi's restaurant. It's really been a long while since we travelled like that and that was usually what we did before the new weekend (friday and Saturday) starts.

First, I had a good time getting two pairs of shoes, a working shoes and a running shoes.  I also got one for my kid at JPO.

That's my kid's sketcher which is also his first sketcher shoes. He likes it very much especially the 'memory foam' which provides very good cushioning. Got it at RM120. 

I got a new working shoes from skechers since my old one was really worn our with no more frictions and grip at the rubber sole. It's also 'memory foam' and its really very comfy with lots of cushioning. Got it ar RM199.

Finally, I got myself another running shoes at Nike Factory Store. Got it at RM240.
I was wearing my current 3 month old Nike shoes to this store and the sales promoter actually told me my current shoes was good with a good cushion. However, I told him that I got knee pain as well as calf muscles ache after wearing it for long distance run. Then, he told me my shoes are meant for flat-footed folks and asked me to show him my foot shape. It's actually the arch type and thus, he told me that could be reason I got the pains. He even told me I will get back pain soon. hahaha... Thus, I asked him to recommend me a good arch type shoes and I got this one. Quite comfy as its fits my feet as I ran yesterday.

  2. Oh I am a shoes maniac actually but never dare to blog about it. You might call me Imelda Marcos! I also wear rubber based black reebok to work as I could walk and run faster than those leather shoes with smooth base. Now I can see we have same penchant for nice coffee, bento and now shoes!!!

  8. oh, your old Nike was meat for flat-foot people?? hmm, you could find them instead, because i think these shoes are not that common because flat-foot is just minority.. actually you can go and get inner pad that has the arch, then can fit to your foot already.. anyway, new shoes is better lah, RM240, and sure this pair of Nike looks cool on you.. got yellow!!! so young dei~~ :)

  11. Memory foam, eh? I bought Scholl's sandals in Langkawi. Supposed to have that...but up till it was spoilt and got thrown away, I did not feel they ever got less uncomfortable that when I first bought them. I'm flat-footed - perhaps I should go and look for a pair here. My father's friend owns a shoe shop here - I can get them at cost price. VERY much cheaper.

  14. Sketchers are good shoes. I wore a pair for a few years. Did not know that Sketchers sell working shoes too. Nike is good too. Hope you won't have any more pain after wearing the new Nike arch type shoes.
