Round 3 – Adrenaline GTS strikes back!

Two of the most important factors when choosing a shoe is the PD factor. Not Port Dickson yah. “P” is for price, and “D” is for durability. Every smart consumer wants something that costs the least, and yet lasts the longest.

Enter the price war!

How to pay less, and get more?

The retail price for the Trance 10 is RM579. The Adrenaline GTS 11 is RM429. (Retail price means the price before discount. Amount of discounts may vary in different outlets)

No contest here. The Adrenaline GTS 11 is the clear winner.

Next, the durability factor. Which shoe can take a longer beating?

Trance 10 is built to be softer and comfier. A soft and comfy shoe comes at a compromise of durability. Since it is made to give you superior comfort, it may wear out more quickly than the Adrenaline GTS 11.

Adrenaline GTS 11 is built a little hardier. It may compromise on the soft, comfy feel. But it can last longer than the Trance 10, in terms of mileage.

PD factor review: The Adrenaline GTS 11 costs less and lasts longer. It is every economist’s choice.

Note to reader: This doesn’t mean the Trance 10 is so flimsy, it lasts for only 10 months while the Adrenaline GTS 11 can last for 11 years. In a comparative analysis, things must be taken in context. In this case, point to note is the Adenaline GTS 11 has a reputation for lasting longer than the Trance 10, mileage-wise. But that difference can be just a very small one.

That’s two-up for the Adrenaline GTS 11! Now it is tied 2-2 with Trance 10. The Adrenaline GTS 11 is back in the game.
