Well, just back from the Outdoor Retailer Show in Utah, and I've been looking at whole lot of trail running gear.

So I'm going to have manufacturers send us shoes for testing over the next 4-6 weeks. Anyone out there want to test some running shoes? If you're interested, drop me an email: shoetester@gunks.com.

Let me know what size shoe you wear (I can only order 2 - 3 sizes for each shoe). You will need to test and comment on each shoe in the test (perhaps 6 - 10 models).

Let me know your clothing size as well since we'll be getting shorts, tops and shells to test as well.

Thanks.

Tried to email ... but the address doesn't seem to be working.

Here's my message:



I'm one of those freaks that wear shoes when I trail run. I'd be happy to test a bunch of them!

In order to keep things under control, I'm only going to be ordering 3 sizes of shoes: Men's 9 & 10, Women's 7.

I'm sorry to those of you who don't fit into these sizes, but the premium on space in the office (as well as not burdening the mfgrs. with mass shoe requests) is the over riding issue.

There will be MANY other reviews taking place this year, and I welcome you to participate in those.

And for those of you who wear a 9, 10 or W7, there's still room for you in the review.

I already have 3 testers in each size. This will ensure that each tester comes away with at least 2 pairs of shoes. So I'm afraid I'm going to limit the number of testers at this point. You are of course welcome and encourraged to participate in future reviews.

France-
This invitation was posted on August 19. I see your first response in this thread on Sept 23rd. If you sent me an email or PM at some time before then, I'm sorry, but I didn't get it.

There's a good chance we'll be doing more running stuff in the early spring.
