Anyone seen the advert for Brooks Adrenaline gts 8s in this month's Runner's World? Essentially a fat bloke wearing a red hairband and a goatee, one Alfie Biggs, relates how happy he is to have found the gts8s. The insinuation is clear: GTS8s are for big boned runners.
Now as a 16 stone, red hairband wearing chap with a beard (for real), I have taken umbrage at this. Are Brooks saying the GTS8 is the fat chap's shoe of choice? Beasts fair enough, but gts8s!? Any thin people out there who wear them?
Please help otherwise next time i step out i will be paranoid about being pointed and giggled at by neutral gaited 250g shoe wearing fartleking 10st tanned types.
