Ghosts

This friend of mine, is a kind person. When he has any second hand Brooks shoes, he will call me and ask if I want them. My answer is definitely 'Yes!'

He is a dealer in Brooks shoes and he always likes to try on different kinds of shoes. After that, he would just sell them away cheaply.

Many months ago, I had bought two pairs from him and recently, my husband told me that those two pairs were almost worn down. 

So I had to ask this friend if he had any second hand shoes. He told me that he had this very pair which he only wore it once and he's selling it at RM180.

Grabbed it and gave it to my husband. He wore it immediately for his meeting last night.
After that, he will wear it for his daily work at the shop.

  7. By just reading the title of this post, I thought this is a ghost story. Luckily it is just the product line of a brand of shoes and not some scary ghost story.

    1. that pair of shoes could possibly cost around RM400.

    2. it retails about RM369 b4 discount. Usually Brooks dealers can give 30% discount, even for new models. :-D

    3. That's considered reasonable..

    2. The reason there's a Ghost series under Brooks brand is because one of the shoes designer. He ran very quietly, i.e. you don't hear his steps , moving like a ghost and the series is named after that. :-D

      Brooks is a very popular brand amongst runners & it caters for mostly runners (running shoes, trail shoes) with one or two models for walking. :-D

    3. Thanks for the information, Lina! You are Brooks user yourself. I also wear Brooks but only for jogs and oversea trips.
