Running Man Shoes

Was an impulsive buy, the fan in me made the decision.

It was bought by my friends when they visited Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan.  Patterned the size using my puma, it's a running shoe of Running Man made by ROOY.


The box has the RM slogan Don't Walk Just Run and
as well as the RM logo on top and of course the big R on the side

It cost me 7,800 Yen

The shoe creator's logo on the other side
ROOY we make shoes together

The box has this white space to put your name on

Packaging is typical, it's a shoe nothing special
S H O E 

I picked the Yellow and Blue color, it also come in Red and Black,
Pink and a lighter shade of Blue

The shoe came with patches, I assume this is a Yoo Jae Suk shoe
Since it has the water gun patch, but I'm just guessing.

The front of the shoe is a Velcro, might be an issue in the
future as it would attract more dust 

The purpose of which is to have the patch stick
and easily be removed 

Back has a smaller Velcro area

Placed an egg at the back

It is designed to be a slip-on

The R is that prominent

I wonder who won the Shoe design contest

A clearer view of the Don't walk, Run slogan

The sole has the running design

It is also filled with the R symbol coupled with the Running Man label

Displays US, EU and JP sizes

The POGI shot
The shoe is comfortable and well designed, I liked the fact that the "DILA" was not loose.  I can just slip it on and off with ease.  Price was a bit expensive but I understand why since its a royalty shoe.  I'm just concerned about the Velcro areas, but all in all the pair is alright on my book.

Great job RM and ROOY!

Whatda! Echo Dot unboxing and setup

E C H O   D O T

Why hello there!

Nice packaging, much like a box for a watch

That's the dot

The box includes the echo dot, a power adapter, USB to micro USB power cable, a stereo audio cable and  quick start guides

S E T T I N G   U P

I used the desktop setup over the mobile app since I'll be using my phone to take pictures

Just followed the wizard, oh by the way you'll need an internet connection for this to work
Plugged in the Echo and just waited till the Echo dot turned orange from the initial dancing blue color
Connected my computer to the Echo Dot to set the Echo's wifi connection

Just confirming the connection

Connecting the Echo Dot to our Wifi network to give Echo access to the internet

Password stuff

Just wait until it finish preparing

When it finishes its prep, the desktop computer needs to disconnect to the Echo and connect to the Wifi network where the Echo is also connected

You can now have Alexa answer some simple questions and some stupid ones, Enjoy!


Echo Dot functions as the normal Echo but its built-in speaker is much smaller (obviously) and inferior.  The unit is designed to pair (Bluetooth) or be plugged into an external speaker system.  The speaker is tolerable if your not that picky.  Mic functions perfectly and the echo can hear me from a distance.  My mother enjoys talking to Alexa and even called her suplada when Alexa doesn't know the answer to her questions.  Echo is not a necessity if you don't have any SMART devices around your home yet it's way cool to play around with.

I currently use it for internet radio, playing music, asking silly questions, sports news, time and weather (as if I need the information).  I'll explore it further.
