SPC Kirsten Glodava of Fort Bliss, TX reviews the PT-1000

>>31 January 2012

UK Gear,

Wanted to let you know how great the PT-1000 shoes have been while training for the upcoming El Paso marathon. I LOVE THESE SHOES!!!  

I have ran in these shoes for almost 500 miles now and they feel just as good now as they did when I got them. Usually at this point (or much sooner in some shoes), the part of the sole towards the toe feels very thin, like my toes can feel the ground.  Not in the PT 1000s. It feels like the rubber is just as thick as when I first started running in them.

The bottom of the shoe also feels like it grips the ground so much better.  When it's cold outside and there's a bit of frost on the ground, I feel like I am not going to slip and fall like I do in other shoes. The inside sole is neither too soft or too hard, it's just right! I am excited to see just how long these shoes will go, I really feel like they will go the full 1000 miles. Which is great for someone like me who runs 40-50 miles a week.

After switching from brand to brand trying to find the perfect shoe for me, I think I have finally found it in UK Gear!
