Celebrating 5 years of Ironman participation

Product Review: K-Swiss K-Ona


My new K Swiss Sneaks

My new K Swiss Sneaks

Thanks to the my volunteer efforts with the Dextro Energy World Championship Series Race in DC this year, I had the chance to pick out a new pair of K-Swiss.  You probably are thinking, why do you want tennis sneakers if you race triathlon?  Well, K-Swiss has been breaking into the running, and more specifically, the triathlon scene.  Their latest shoe – the K Ona (umm..Kona…as in Ironman) – is designed just for tris.  It’s light and has great ventilation!  I tested it out on a short taper run on Sunday and another today.  Both on the treadmill and the sidewalk, the shoe felt great!  I thought I would take my Fast Fulcrum Ride sneaks to Wisconsin as my back up pair, but now I’m not so sure.

  1. They sure look comfy, like little couches for your feet.

    After sloshing through timberman with soaked 10-pound shoes, I may have to switch over to tri-specific shoes next year.
