New Shoes on

New Shoes on

Sorry not been around much. Still struggling with too much work and not enough tinternet time. I am on a 10 mile plan with Asics so decided to buy my 4th pair of shoes. Since injury with post tibial tendonitis I was informed I have a slight overpronation (which self corrects) but would benefit from more support in my shoes.

Here they are. I went for 1/2 a size up as recommended where I've normally gone a whole size up. Wondering if I've done the right thing but only time will tell. Plan to take them for a long run on Sunday to see how I fare.

No one warned me I would own 4 pairs of running shoes following this programme. Happy running all

GF

They're lovely GF! My feeling is we can never have enough running stuff! Hope these prove as comfortable and long-lasting as they are good-looking!

Ooh love those shoes GF! They look too good to actually use! I'd just sit and look at them. Happy running in them and I hope Rico doesn't get scared off by the bright colours.

Thanks Lou. I agree although storage is becoming a problem

Nice shoes!! I have eyeing up a new pair but I have told myself until mine are worn out... Which is a while away. I was wondering what do people do with their old running shoes?

Maybe donate them if they still have miles on them?

Oh my goodness they are BEAUTIFUL. Properly swooning over those (haha who knew)!

Hope they serve you well! :)
