A dialogue between a shop owner and a customer
Customer: Good morning! I am looking for a new pair of running shoes.
Shop owner: Good morning! Sure, we have a great selection of running shoes. What type of running are you planning on doing?
Customer: I’m training for a half marathon, so I need shoes that are durable and supportive.
Shop owner: Great! We have a few options that I think would work well for you. Have you ever tried the Asics Gel-Kayano?
Customer: No, I haven’t. Can you tell me more about them?
Shop owner: The Gel-Kayano is one of our best-selling running shoes. They have a gel cushioning system that provides excellent support and shock absorption, which is ideal for long-distance running.
Customer: That sounds perfect. What sizes do you have available?
Shop owner: We have them in sizes 8 to 12, and we also have some half sizes available.
Customer: I’m a size 9. Can I try them on?
Shop owner: Of course! Let me grab a pair for you. Here you go.
Customer: These feel great! How much are they?
Shop owner: They are $150.
Customer: That’s a bit more than I was hoping to spend. Do you have anything similar that is a little more affordable?
Shop owner: Absolutely. We have the Brooks Ghost 13, which is another popular running shoe. They are also very supportive and durable, and they are priced at $120.
Customer: That sounds like a better option for me. Can I try them on as well?
Shop owner: Sure thing. Here you go.
Customer: These feel good too. I think I’ll take the Brooks Ghost 13. Can I pay with a credit card?
Shop owner: Yes, we accept all major credit cards. Would you like me to ring you up?
Customer: Yes, please. Thank you so much for your help.
Shop owner: You’re welcome! I hope these shoes help you train for your half marathon.
