So good I bought them twice...

At long last, I finally made it to runners world, got my gait assessed and bought these beauties. The lovely Alex helped me out. As suspected I need stability shoes, and to my delight, the pretty ones were the best fit! I was so delighted, I also bought a pair of trail shoes. Last year's model so a bit of a bargain, thank you Alex. They are the ones with the tasteful yellow strip around the sole. ๐Ÿ˜Ž I run a lot of footpaths which are usually in good nick, but they can get slippy and muddy, and with my dodgy ankle I think I deserve to treat myself. Don't anybody argue now! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I've already given my new blue beauties a little jog out with CP2, and my feet feel strangely well since then. I was not expecting that! Result!!

Happy running everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š

Next weโ€™ll have to try the trail shoes... I donโ€™t have any but I do have a rain jacket

That'll do for starters CP!

Ooooo 2 pairs of gorgeous trainers GOG! How wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜€

You wonโ€™t know yourself in your trail shoes. They have revolutionised the way I run when the footing is less than perfect! Enjoy them. ๐Ÿ‘

Good to hear youโ€™ve already given the other ones an outing too! Happy running. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

I almost didn't, but the guy was so knowledgeable and helpful, I knew I could trust him. And at reduced price, well, it would have been rude not to ๐Ÿ˜

Nice. I like them both. Happy running.

Thanks, it's been a long time coming :)

I always buy whatever's on sale, so I tend to go through different brands, but I loved my Saucony, I didn't even feel the ground, like running on pillows, and they were so light. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜

Iโ€™ve got these! Cost me ยฃ125. I swear by them! I couldโ€™ve got a different colourway for ยฃ60 though ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคฃ 3rd pair now.

Yep, hand over the card and close my eyes! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I love the colour sooo much! I normally just have to have the pair that fits, it's usually a grey pair๐Ÿ™„. Now that I know what works, I expect I'll stick with these too. It's good to know they work for you too. Got to say, I would've probably got the ยฃ60 pair too, I'm a sucker for a "bargain"๐Ÿ˜

Ha ha yeah but they were white - impractical. Not you know the style you need, you can just type โ€˜womenโ€™s omni isoโ€™ into google and find the cheapest pair ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ They are a new colourway hence the price ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅด

Ah no, nobody wants the white ones! Good idea though Tasha, but I should probably leave it a month or two ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

They should last you up to 6 months. Depends how quickly you wear the treads down,

Thanks ๐Ÿ‘

Double purchase!! To think that I resisted doing exactly that when I went shopping!! ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ˜ต ๐Ÿ˜ž ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ก

๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ sorry uncle wiggy, but I have now convinced myself that I have done a smart and sensible thing ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚

I think so too GOG, just annoyed with myself, altho neither of my fav 2 pairs were reduced price! Hope they give you many miles of on & off road pleasure!

Lovely shoes ๐Ÿ˜ both pairs are a lovely colour ๐Ÿ˜Š youโ€™ll be flying round like a gazelle now ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Sadly I don't think they have magical powers Bridget, but in my head I'll be flying ๐Ÿ˜

And thatโ€™s what counts ๐Ÿ˜„

But then I just adore my own Saucony shoes. Happy running in those both.

Thanks, and to you, BarbieW!

grumpyoldgirl in reply to Jell6

Who me?!!๐Ÿ˜‡ I'm hoping I've got all the spending over with for a while jell, I hate shopping for shoes normally, because nothing ever fits, so I'm doing a little a little happy dance. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

They look lovely.

Thank you Zara ๐Ÿ˜Š

Well done and what fantastic shoes! They really do make a difference, don't they.

Thanks yes, I finally did it, and I'm just amazed how few aches and pains I have after my run.
