Hello Eco Living - PT-1000 Review

>>07 February 2011


Eco running equipment

Designed for the British Army, this is not an obviously green choice; however the PT-1000 has been designed to be used for up to 1000 miles more than twice that of the average running shoe. It also doubles up as both a road and off road running shoe so you only need one pair of trainers instead of two! In spite of not being designed as an eco conscious shoe this really is very sustainable and practical; imagine every shoe lasting twice as long!

So what’s it like to run in? Well the PT-1000 is very supportive, you feel as if you have something indestructible on your foot offering great protection, yet with this strength you don’t notice much additional weight. I’d recommend the PT-1000 as being better for off road as the cushioning is very firm for banging out miles on the road. The features and functionality of the shoe are amazing and it comes in different versions depending on your level of pronation. With a price tag of £95 UK Gear have not priced this shoe for the budget conscious, however when you think it should last two or three times as long as a regular shoe and is fine on most surfaces the price is very reasonable. I’d also add that this would be fine as a cross training shoe due to good stability.
