Let me guess… coming soon, in women’s sizes. You’d think with how fast the men’s sizes sold out in the last colorways, they would take a hint.

Those are quite nice and would complement my winter gear really well. It's all navy with dark and mint greens.

Let's hope for some large women's sizes (or men's equivalents)!

After seeing the new colorways for the GP Challenges, I thought that she was going to switch to the new model. This new colorway gives me hope that I can still get some new Turbos.

I saw her wearing the new GP Challenges, so it’s not looking hopeful…

Stock up now boys

Just finally wore through my Dark Raisin pair, I got 25 wears out of them.

Only nine pairs left to go

I’ve got about 20 pairs in the closet. Trying to wear them down as much as I can before throwing each one out, knowing they might never come back again.

20? I thought I had a problem. lol

I have two other pairs that are approaching that 20-match mark. I'll be down to six pairs by the end of the year.

It’s an even bigger problem than I thought. I have 31 pairs, including the ones that I have opened and been rotating through. I would say they last me 2-3 months. So I should be good for a while. It’s the only shoe I’ve ever worn that doesn’t give me foot or knee pain, so I started to hoard when I found out they were going to be discontinued. Maybe they will bring them back at some point.

Same boat man. Literally me.

When I wear out my current pair, I've thought about cutting out the zoom air unit and attaching them to some insoles to see if I can wear them w/ other shoes.

For me the lacing mechanism in the GP turbos is far more stable than any other shoe I’ve tried. Have any of you found anything comparable in a different shoe?

Nope. Haha.

I think that may be an advantage of the relatively soft upper. Can really pull it into place and support the parts of your foot that need it (in my case, right arch)

Dang. Thought I was a hoarder with my 7 pairs.

How did it go?

Pretty good, I just slide them under the insole (see here click around to see the extraction), wore them for years until they turned into work shoes then they got wrecked. Still have the air units though!

Wish they would sell liners with Zoom air, there are some fake looking things on big auction site, additionally there are a few Nike basketball shoes that had liners with Zoom embedded in them rather than the sole, but would prob have to buy the whole shoe to get them.

I've been playing in GP turbos, but they're going to be nearly impossible to get at some point. I was thinking about cutting out the full length zoom air unit, but you can buy them on the bay for less than $20. Just stuck some into my Hokas to walk around in (over my carbon arch supports, under the Hoka insoles):
GP turbo Hokas!

I'm going to use them in all my shoes.

I actually like Mizunos more for tennis, but I couldn't get over the cushioning in the GP turbos. Now I can have the best of both worlds.

Women's gp turbo is not the same, cushioning is not as good. speaking from experience
