The North Face Arnuva 50 Boa

Took TNF out for a run on Saturday. No trail run just flat ground at East Coast. Did not use any of my orthotics insole just so that I can get the real feel of the shoe.

The Boa lacing was a breeze. Just push and turn and the lace is tighten. Hopefully, the lace won't break easily. But looking at the lace layout, wonder how I going to tie any timing chip to it.

The feel while running was good. Very cushioned and comfortable. I ran 15km in it and the foot didn't get heated up at all. Me think it is suitable for a marathon.

On the flip side, while buying a can of drink, I walked over a patch of water and it sure felt slippery just like the shop guy said and another friend who attested to it - that it was not suitable for wet ground. So there was some truth in it after all.
