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

  • Thanks mfamilias. Seems a shame to get them dirty -not

  • Oooo pretty shoes! Have to say, whilst I've been on the IC I've been fantasy shopping all manner of running kit. Will probably follow your lead and and get new shoes to cosset my poorly tootsies. :)

  • Can't wait to try them EM

  • 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!

  • 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?
