Getting my Run on again with AMPLA!

With increased energy for workouts recently also came an increased desire to get back out on the pavement for a run!
I had a brand new running buddy who loves to be outside and keeps the same pace as me ….

… so all I needed were some new kicks to help me get my stride!
Enter, the Ampla Fly Carbon Fiber Plated Shoe!

Ampla has quickly become a trailblazer of “firsts” both in design and business strategy.
Design
  • Full length carbon fibre Forcepower plate that guides foot strike and releases stored energy at toe-off
  • Actively uses a runner’s natural force during foot strike
  • Lightweight cushioning and a seam free Diamond mesh with micro-suede upper
  • First premium shoe to implement a 100% direct to consumer model
  • No added marketing or sales commissions padding the price
  • Free returns within 30 days, no questions asked
Here is a short video featuring Harvard trained sports scientist, Dr. Marcus Elliot, as he explains more about Ampla Fly’s technology. Also, here is a review of the shoe from Sports Illustrated.

I’ve enjoyed taking these bad boys out for runs on the local parkways and runways we’ve discovered.

My Review of the AMPLA Fly shoe:
I really dug the way that these shoes gave me some lift in the heel! Especially being preggers, I’ve felt a little tired and lacking in the breathing department when I’ve tried to go on walks and runs. Whenever I’d move forward in stride and propel myself forward, the heel of the Fly would move me forward move than I would on my typical ‘flat’ running shoes. I think that these are great running shoes if someone is trying to PR in a race or get more action in their speed training — they’re made for speed! I also really liked the simple design and feel and color of these shoes — I’m all about matching everything! The toe box was smaller than what I’m used to, but I also have a very flat and wide little set of feetsies.
They’re unlike any other shoe I’ve worn to run in, and I’m super impressed with how the technology comes into play for the every day runner like me!
I received a free pair of AMPLA Fly running shoes in exchange for writing this review.  Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.
Baby Kiala and I will be enjoying out time on the pavement — walking or running — to keep up our fitness off and on that’s for sure!
