How about Nike? I went to the Nike store in Grand Indonesia and as expected they had brand-new Nike Zoom Structure Triax+ 14 on stock! This model was released only a few months ago, so it's really great to be able to buy it here. Well, almost, because they did have my size! I visited few other Nike stores with the same result, so I checked 3 sport shops just to be told that usually brand new Nike shoes don't come in my (large) size. Already quite upset about this I visited one more sport store at Plaza Indonesia and to my great surprise, they had Nike Zoom Structure Triax+ 14 my size!!! Well, so here it goes, my new pair of trail running shoes:
After few runs I must say I like these even more than the Triax+ 13s. Same great cushioning but somehow they feel more stable and I think they are also lighter than the previous model. The only thing I could complain about is that mud easily sticks to the bottom of these shoes (same as Triax+ 13), but I think it's a side effect of outstanding traction on slippery surfaces. It's quite amazing how easy it is to run in these shoes on wet stones and slippery trails. Anyway, I'm looking forward to Triax+ 14 GTX, which should be released sometime in October 2011.
