My Salomon running shoes is showing signs of wear and tear. Having started on my resolution to head to the gym daily last week, I will need to get a new pair soon. In view of an upcoming trip to China, I asked a childhood friend who is based there if the orginal shoes at her side are cheaper. She warned me against the idea because recently, a Prada boutique in Guangzhou was caught selling fakes and the incident caused a huge ruckus. China is, afterall, trying to clean up its image before the Olympics. Thankfully, that does not bother me because I am not extremely brand conscious. Besides, Prada??? Their prices are obsence! So I bet there are great spinoffs in China like Prala, Lala, Pradae etc. :)
Okay does anyone have good running shoes and places to buy them to recommend? Going to town to get them is out of the question of course because of the super marked-up prices there. Leave a comment!
