The RW Team just returned from a few days in Austin, Texas attending The Running Event, an annual trade show open to running specialty retailers from around the country. It features all of the top brands displaying many of their newest products and concepts. Here’s an overview of some of the new products we found of particular interest.
As we’ve mentioned previously, Nike is all about their Lunar Technology going forward so much so that the bulk of their new running specialty product offerings from Fall ’10 (late Summer introductions) are Lunar based. The former Bowerman line, generally considered more traditional running footwear, is whittled down to color updates on the four primary models within the Bowerman line, the Vomero+5, the Equalon+4, the Structure Triax+ 13 and the Air Pegasus+ 27. The rest of the shoes earmarked for the running specialty industry are Lunar.
