Military training in Singapore have come a long way since the 60’s, and so have the running shoes provided. From old flat canvas shoes in the past, Singaporean men have been hitting the pavement with kicks from Adidas and New Balance the last few years.
But what might surprise you is that even our top brass are fans of the new kicks. If you haven’t seen Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen’s shoe review, here it is.
Here’s my video introducing the new SAF shoes and how I work out to keep fit.

Minister Ng gave his verdict in a Facebook post: ” The SAF new PT shoes are out and I was game to try them on while rowing. I think most NSmen will be happy with how snazzy they look, but most importantly with their performance too.”
He showed his knowledge of running shoe design as well, adding: “The New Balance shoes feel really light and are for neutral to low-arch foot types while the Adidas is a snug fit for neutral to high-arch foot types.”
Maybe we should ask Minister Ng to join our panel for our next MH Guide to Running!
