Pearl Izumi Shines!

Trainer Ong passed this PI' s Shine Model to me to " test Run"... as he found that she may be a good alternative for Neutral Runners.
I took her for "test run" at the stadium track last night.. just like Ong.. i also found that this PI running shoe was indeed very comfortable. She wrapped ard the foot well without any of those irritating internal stitched threads or "straps" that cause abrasion n blisters. The Heel n Forefoot's Cushion are pretty impressive n offers very good shock absorption with good stability. The "toe off" was also smooth... Overall, this model is a "Good Value for Money" Cushion Shoe for Neutral Runners!
