I really don’t shop much. I try to know enough about the things I’m interested in, at least the cost of those things, but don’t really follow much else. I was surprised when I went into a local Boulder running store, a couple days ago, with the shoe selection. I didn’t really pay any attention to how much they cost, I was too mesmerized by the colors. I obviously missed the new style memo on running shoes. I hope this doesn’t bleed over to cycling. I have a ton of historical photos that are nearly ruined by some product’s fashion statement from the time. I understand the whole marketing deal, trying to get consumers to upgrade to the newest and greatest, but when it is just a changing of color for the model year, I’m not really interested in that.
