ASICS heads Ironman shoe count
ASICS led the field as favourite footwear brand of the more than 1,300 triathletes who participated in the gruelling GoPro Hawaii Ironman World Championship held earlier this month.
ASICS was worn by 17.5 percent of the athletes — a slight decline from 2012 when the brand also had the highest count.
Saucony was second with 16.5 percent, up 1.9 percent from last year.
Newton was third, but reflected a drop from 11.9 percent to 9.7 percent.
Other popular brands were Brooks (9.5 percent), Mizuno (6.9 percent), adidas (6.4 percent), Nike (6.4 percent) and K-Swiss (5.4 percent).
