In Case You Missed It: Usain Bolt 9:58

(amazing… don’t tell me your not gonna watch the finals)

(not going for the Bolt Arms though lol)

Yes take a look at this. Its one of the most popular things read on Sneaker and Shoes for the past week.


I’ll Be Starting Wednesday Workout Soon

(geeeeeeeeze this is funny)

(thought I throw a classic at you lol)

Why am I doing this? because I need to start working out… and I think one of the reasons why SOME people by sneakers is to… guess what? work out in them? Go figure. So far the sneaker I have in my arsenal are the Nike Shox, Nike Air Max 360 (rejuvenation), and the adidas Megabounce Mega Burst special addition “Rainbow”.

I actually did a little running in the adidas and I have to say that they really do what they say such that with each step they return some of that energy. I never ran in the 360’s before, but hope to get them a shot tomorrow at the track (but I really got them to walk around in… want to get to 2 miles or 30 minutes 4 days a week walking)

I will be testing out sneakers shortly (especially if Finishline keeps that return a sneaker program going) and I will be having family members testing sneakers (and shoes) shortly as well in the hopes that there can be more than just insane rants on how the sneaker or shoe looks. Now I will have insane rants on how they actually work (or don’t work).

Remember breakfast is really important part of the day LMAO


Olympic Sneakers and Shoes: adidas Men’s adiStar Sprint

I saw these tonight being worn by Marshevet Hooker (she is from the University of Texas) running in lane 9 for the 200M (for those who taped the games to see later). I never liked lane 9 when I was running track, but its a mental thing I guess. In lane 9 you are basically running against yourself because you can’t see anybody and when you do, it means you’re in trouble because now your running on the outside trying to catch up with someone on the inside.

LOL, you know whats funny? Lane 1 isn’t any better because now everyone is ahead of you and you feel like your last and forgetaboutit if you don’t start passing people on the curve cause you aint caching them on the straight-a-way.

Anyway, back to the track shoes, they look ok, but they looked MADDD odd out there on the field. You can’t miss them if you are looking at the womens feet for that 200M heat. They looked like they weighed a ton.

Not sure if I would run in them, but I will admit that they look pretty cool. not great, but cool.

Get yours (if you want it) at Eastbay.com on sale for $59.99 (not bad considering the original price is 79.99) of which is a good place for sports equipment. I wouldn’t say this is a collectible, but make no mistake, as my collection of sneakers and shoes grow, there will be some alternative sneakers in the bunch and I will probably have a couple pairs of track shoes in there.

Find more about Marshevet Hooker here or just Google her.


Olympic Sneakers And Shoes: UPDATE – What Usain Bolt Wears – Fastest Man Alive

The Puma Men’s Complete Theseus II Croc $99.99

(I don’t think that this is the sneaker This is not the sneaker because I think the shoe is all gold, but it sure looks like it… I’m sure we will know in a few days)

Pictured above is Bolt winning and Puma grinning with the Jamaica Puma Cell Meio

Nicekicks.com saves the day and may show the sneaker he wears soon

If you want to watch a commercial (that doesn’t even show the sneaker lol what’s up with that?) then click here (why it is on AOL website I don’t know). Here is another teaser video on Runningspace.com

Puma commercials from 2006… funny!!! Bolt is in some of them

You can also find out more about what Bolt wears here at Pumas website (ChasingBolt.com)

The sneaker looks ok (if it is the Puma Men’s Complete Theseus II Croc). Not great but ok. He also has a more causal sneaker that you can actually wear on the streets. There is a sneaker for Bolt based off the new Puma Cell Meio “street style” sneakers that are pretty interesting to me but I have not seen too many people wearing them.

Oh and yeah, Usain Bolt holds the 100M world record.

The question is, just how fast is he? So far I, nor anyone else, has seen him push it to the limit. He has, so far, let up just before he reaches the finish line (sometimes way before). I’m not too into his show boating either, but hey I remember what I was like when I was 21… and it wasn’t grown and sexy (more like brash and reckless… ok, ok, I was a nerd but you get the point).

I hope he looses some of the show boating otherwise I think he will become the fastest and most disliked man alive.
