I've worn Asics since I started running marathons in 2001. My sense of loyalty had little to do with a love for the brand itself; rather, it was guided by convenience. I knew my size. I could order online. It was easy.
Well, yesterday I heeded the advice of friend, running store owner, and El Scorcho co-race director, James "Six Pack" Newsom, and bought a pair of Brooks. I'm about to take 'em for a spin. We'll see how they treat me, but one thing I know: they sure are pretty.

Dude, you are going to love love love love love Brooks. That is my absolute go-to shoe. As soon as your feet get used to them, you will love them. The only thing: I can only get about 300 to 325 miles on them.

I love brooks, but mizunos are starting to get up there also. I still wear my first pair of brooks from 3 years ago when I first started running...just as casual shoes though.
