yeah ordered it on Amazon, though already been shipped.  

I'm wondering if the extra 200 is worth the upgrade, and the hassle thats all. 

Its not the money, but if there ain't really any difference, why should I bother?

 

I'll check it out, hopefully they allow cancellations. 

 

I just bought a Mi Band 5 on the first flash sale. It's absolutely worth the 200. 

Why it is better:

1. Magnetic Charging [You don't have to remove the main capsule out of the band. This is a big plus as the main capsule fits into the band tightly, so no chance of breaking it while removing]

2. More workout modes

3. It has a larger screen, but that isn't a big difference.

4. You can customize the widgets on the watch face now.

5. It now tracks REM Sleep

6. It has PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence) which ranks your daily workout life

7. It tracks menstrual cycle

Thats an extensive feature set bro, I think number 8 will come in clutch.

 

Definitely worth the extra 200 now.

Earlier this year, when buying a mouse also could not find indian option. Wow, our market does kinda suck.

I was looking for something with shock absorption but at the same time doesnt break the bank, since my achilles tendon seems to get a little sore when I do a few sprint.

Thanks will check out pegasus 37. 5k will be a good price and reviews are also good.

Though really wanted to try the gel based Asics but 13k for kayanos seems a lot.


If you want the softest most comfortable sole, get Adidas shoes with the boost sole (Ultraboost, Pureboost) They’re comfier than anything out there.
 

If you want something a bit firmer, but still with good cushioning, get the Kayanos.

 

Don’t pay more than 7-8k for the Adidas Ultraboost, and 5-6k for other boost shoes. Asics Kayanos, not less than 50% off. For Nikes, they usually retail at 30-40% off, during sales. Getting them for 50% off would be a good deal.

Where would be a good place to buy kayanos for 50% off or ultraboost for 7-8k? Fk/Amazon?

Don't get the kayanos unless you've tried them out, they are aimed for overpronators. Get the nimbus if you want an Asics

Flipkart or Amazon. You'll get them at 50% off at both places. Size/ colour availability will vary across the sites.

 

I saw the latest Ultraboosts (20) for 9.5k on Flipkart a few weeks back. They will definitely be cheaper during the sale.

 

Can see a few boost shoes on discount on Amazon. Expect similar pricing on the entire Adidas range during the sale.

Check Ajio as well. They currently have the best discounts on the newer/ rarer shoes, across websites.

Agreed, true for any shoe. Best to try out before purchasing, if possible.

Man this Amazon and Flipkart copycats. All sales same time. This time Amazon copy Flipkart. But someone said this sale not biggest one for Amazon? Is that next month?

fkrt's flagship sale is BBD and Amzn's Diwali Sale which will be in two weeks after BBD gets over. They have to compete with each other else there will be no traffic for Amzn.

From my personal experience, I had the ultraboost 17 and really liked it and literally wore it for 2 years straight, but unfortunately while bowling, my big (thumb?) toe tore it. So use the shoes for regular wear or running/jogging. But prefer to not wear it while playing most sports.

The comfort it had was beyond epic.

 

Then last year, to replace these, I got Ultraboost 19 & Nike joyride flyknit. The nike joyride was even better and is my daily driver now. I have rarely worn my ultraboost because I find the nike to be much more comfortable.

Yes the mesh upper is really susceptible to wear and tear. Even with moderate usage, it will eventually tear after a few years. Have had it happen to me as well. Really hurts when it happens. But the comfort and breathability offered was well worth it. 

 

Interestingly, mesh was really common a few years back on even mid range shoes, across brands. Due to cost cutting, it has now been replaced by Synthetic and all companies now only offer it on their top end shoes as a 'feature'. 

 

I haven't ever seen Joyride's for sale in India. Look futuristic and really comfortable as well. Will check them out, next time I come across them :thumbsup:
