Lace Up, Power Up

These are my trainers: Adidas Kanadia TRs.  I bought them back in 2009 and they are starting to fall apart a bit, but that comes as no surprise.

Excluding hundreds of training sessions, here are just some of things these bad boys have seen me through:

All in all, I’ve become quite attached to these shoes. It’s sad to think the time may have come to replace them. In fact, I might just buy another pair of the same!

Of course, the only issue is that I have spent all my money on adventures and have none left for food – let alone shoes! Maybe if I promise to do more adventures, Adidas will sponsor me. Or at least donate some new trainers to my cause…

Anyway, as a way of bidding farewell to my Kanadias, here are some photos of them in action. In the first one,  they are laced with special laces from the Shaolin Temple in Cheshunt, who use some of their profits to support disadvantaged martial-arts projects. They’re only £5 and would make a unique stocking filling for any budding athlete.
