***EDITED POST: I now only run in ASICS. See Updated post over here! ******
I need new running shoes, can you help?
I used to be a huge Asics fan until foot surgery sidelined me for awhile. After I recovered they just didn’t feel right anymore. They didn’t have much cushion and seemed “heavy” so I switched to Saucony.
I loved the Triumph 5s which I wore during my recent pregnancy. I bought a new pair (which are now the Triumph 6s) for the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon and I have grown to hate them. They are uncomfy and almost too tight on my feet. Did the shoe change that much or just my feet? Who knows.
I got a pair of New Balance walking shoes at Fitbloggin which are very comfy and roomy. I haven’t branched out to their running shoes yet. Are they they same?
When I posted this question on my Facebook fan page (are you a fan yet?), it seemed like everyone agreed that Nike’s are NOT a favorite. Interesting considering I think they are the leading brand of shoes when it comes to running.
Okay, maybe I’m making that up but I was surprised that so many people have told me they don’t like Nikes. (In fact, I have never met a person who DOES like Nike as a running shoe!)
So please help me out if you can. Recommend a shoe that is roomy for my poor decrepit feet. 🙂
As you can see, I don’t want to spend another $100+ on more shoes that just don’t measure up!
