XC-09 - Amazing Performance! Maria I. Quiles

>>27 June 2011

Maria_Quiles_1.jpgI discovered UK Gear shoes through the Military Exchange last year and I FELL IN-LOVE!

Before I found UK Gear’s XC-09 shoes, I owned 3 different pairs of training shoes; one for running, one for weight training, and a pair for outdoor/cross training. But that didn’t matter, I started to develop issues with my knees that caused me to stop running and even biking, step-mill, walking, you name it I was suffering. At first I thought the typical, “I’m just getting older and this is normal for athletes of my age.” BUT, I was most certainly not going to take this lying down. I had 10k/20obstacle course race run and I had just become a member of the Overcome Fitness Fears (O.F.F.) Challenge team to compete in Fitness and Figure.

I am a hardcore athlete with more than enough smarts to listen to what my body was telling me, I am a CPT after all. I went on the hunt for the perfect shoe/s that could take every demand thrown at them and then some and I managed to narrow my choice down to two possible contenders. Because of the way I train myself on a personal level and the team training I do, it was a perfect environment to put the XC-09 by UK Gear to the test.

I wore them for every aspect of my fitness routine and let me tell you, AMAZING performance! I was so impressed that after only a week’s time I chucked all the other training shoes away and left just the ONE PAIR; my XC-09's.

This shoe is so incredibly versatile that I recently used them to run a hardcore 10k/20 obstacle race and my feet felt amazing, never heavy and without niggles. I’m talking mud pits, swimming through swamps, climbing, jumping, and so many hills; all I had was a little tiny blister! NEVER EVER again will I wear another shoe for my training whether it is on the weight room floor, on the trail, and/or jumping tires. Plus, no more knee problems… How about that for amazing!

Now I am on a quest to become a TOP fitness competitor and I need a shoe that will stay with me and be just as STRONG no matter what obstacle is thrown my way. I have the up most faith that UK Gear can help me get there for I can only go as far as my feet can take me!
