New Running Shoes

My feet are two different sizes. It makes finding shoes really difficult, so when I find a pair that works, I tend to hold on for a bit too long.

My vibrams broke this weekend when we were in Monterey.


They weren't my favorite shoes for long runs, but they were perfect for travelling. I will miss them on my next road trip, and will consider replacing them (although they smell terrible after like two runs).

For everyday running at home, I had a much cushier pair of shoes: New Balance 730's, but a super old model that certainly is not the 'minimalist' shoe they now sell as a 730. I was pretty unimpressed with the quality of these shoes. They started ripping at the seams after way too few runs.


We weren't running too much, and they still worked, so I didn't replace them. Last week, though, our coach recommended we get a good pair of running shoes for the fall.



I found these beauties at a discount shoe store for a pretty decent price. They're technically trail running shoes, but they do the trick. I went for a 40-minute run on the treadmill earlier this week and had no knee pain. I definitely enjoyed the extra bounce that comes with new shoes.

My left foot (the bigger one) is a little squished in the toe box, but nothing extreme. As they stretch and break in, it should get enough roomier. I'm looking forward to wearing these shoes out. Also, really happy they're not white!! Love grey sneakers!
