A while ago I wrote about having 9 pairs of running shoes and saying I was due for a new pair. I was having a debate about whether I would get a new pair of Nike's or try something else. I decided to completely abandon Nike's at least for the next little while because this happened to my latest pair.
If you look closely at the top shoe - I've been kicking my self.... literally. Most of my shoes have wear in this spot. But this is by far the worst it has ever been on a pair of shoes. I have worn these shoes shoes less than 15 times. The sad thing is I love these shoes I waited about 6 weeks for these to come in. Nonetheless the shoes are now going to be used for short runs and step class.
So I went to Grand Riving Running and spent an hour having my gait checked and trying on shoes. I still pronate so I need stability shoes. I over analyzed this purchase so much that I went back after I had bought the shoes just to check out my second choice. I went back and forth between saucony and mizuno shoes. In the end the mizunos won out. I've worn these shoes a few times and I love them. So here's to not kicking myself and just running.
