Don’t Shop Much

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.

Bolle made some pretty questionable glasses back in the day.

    Those colors look great on a 23 year old female runner, but not so much on a 58 year old guy. :^)

    Ah, eyewear..

    I still have a pair of Bolle micro-edge, and a pair of M-Frames that are so old, they actually say Oakley on the earpiece, instead of the big “O”.. I try to wear them at least once a year, just to hear the comments from the guys.

    Oh! I remember those Bolle glasses well, as I too, owned a pair. I do wish that we would get rid of model year bikes, simply changing color and increasing the price isn’t all that encouraging to the consumer. Heal quickly Steve!
