Well I was invited to attend this Asics Expo at the Fort and being a newbie runner, I went to check things out. I heard that when it comes to running shoes, Asics is one of the leaders in the industry.
Anyway, aside from Asics shoes of up to 40% off they also brought along their Foot Scan ID at the expo. It’s not the gait-analysis scanner that other running store have but the Foot Scan ID will only determine your shoe size.
I thought to myself, what happened to the old way of knowing your shoe size? Like trying different sizes until you find one that feels comfortable. Hehehe, anyway it’s just one of the type of scanners that Asics will have on their first store here in the Philippines this coming May.
So if you’re interested in knowing the size of your feet or want to buy discounted Asics running shoes, do drop by at the expo until this Sunday (Feb. 7) at the Condura Village in Bonifacio High Street, Fort Bonifacio.
Oh yeah, I impulsively bought a pair of Asics GEL 1150 myself for P3,800 from P4,700. Can’t wait to try it out on my next run to see if it’s worth the buy. I feel that my adizero is not suitable for my running gait.
Lastly here’s a trivia, ASICS was named after the Latin phrase “Anima Sana in Corpore Sano” which means “Sound Mind in a Sound Body”.
