PT-1000 - Phil Brewer, Reserve Forces

>>16 March 2011

Dear UK Gear,
The PT-1000 road and trail running shoes have to be the most solid built running shoe I have found yet, and I can report that they are very comfortable indeed. I did a 6-miler straight off in them and felt no discomfort at all.

As soon as I pulled them out of the box and did the obligatory smell test (or is that just me?)  I liked the way they looked and I liked the stitching. I don’t usually notice things like that but with these shoes, it’s the quality of the build that you do notice. You would think a well put together trainer like the PT-1000 would weigh a bit more than usual, but this is not the case and they are sturdy as well as light.

I have had them for nearly a month now and have done plenty of runs in them ranging from 3 to 8-milers. I have had no problems with them at all.

These are the best trainers I have had and used in years. No flashy logos or gizmo's, just well constructed and therefore tough trainers. Exactly what I need for the type of running I do. A pleasure to run in and I have found my favourite running shoe of all time.

Best regards,
Phil Brewer.
