National Running Day Skechers ProSpeed Giveaway!
Skechers is relatively new to the running shoe scene, better known for their casual shoes, cross-trainers and popular Shape-Ups. But their follow-up to the Resistance Runner looks to be a step in the right direction.
Using proprietary Smart Shoe technology, the Pro Speed is designed to permit the wearer to run with a more natural mid-foot strike, helping to reduce stress on the knees and minimize injury.
The shoe is relatively lightweight (around 10 oz, depending on size) and is designed for training or racing. The ProSpeed is intended to simulate "barefoot" running, but is still well-cushioned and provides lots of support. This is not for hardcore minimalists, but perhaps fans of Newton Running shoes or similar low - heel-toe drop cushioned running shoes.
The ProSpeed retails for $100.
But you can get your pair FREE. Since this qualifies as a "major" prize (at least for this blog), you have a chance to earn up to three entries. One for leaving a comment on this post. One for tweeting a link to this post (please include a link to your tweet in your comment). And one for linking to this post from your blog. As usual, the deadline for entries is Saturday at midnight.
