PT-1000 - An impeccable running shoe! Angela Tassoni

>>17 October 2011

Dear UK Gear,

AngelaI have been a long distance runner for 20 years now. I started running and competing when I was only 16yrs old, racing 10k's in Phoenix, Arizona and eventually advancing into cross country and the 3,000m on track in high school. During this time, I was ranking at national level whilst training with world class coach, Fred Moore for many years through out the desert and canyons of the mid west.

I was also the featured runner in a national campaign for the Nike Alpha Project which involved me having to run through snow and harsh wind on the streets of San Francisco during filming. So you see, running shoes are most important to me.

Over the last 6-months, I have been wearing UK Gear's latest toad and trail running shoe – the PT-1000. Whilst running, I have found the shoe to be very supportive around my ankles and arch. I also find the durability sustaining throughout much wear and the tread to do the running itself.

It feels as if you can run for miles upon miles in the PT-1000 shoes because your feet have the comfort and support respectfully needed in such wear. The shoes also give one self the confidence to tackle a wide range of terrains with a sturdy support and balance.

Good form is essential in running. UK Gear's PT-1000 offers the balance that a foot needs for placement in a relaxed and optimal running form for performance. UK gear running shoes are most comfortable.

With great thanks for producing and introducing me to an impeccable running shoe.
