I am now the proud owner of four pair of shoes. Two running and two trail. The running ones are expensive Asics :
a white pair with a lot of plastic which make my feet sweat so I used them to match white Capri pants if I go for coffee somewhere.
Then my serious running business looking ones, bright orange as my reward while doing C25K.
The trail ones are $50 NB :
Last June, in preparation for a camping trip up North where the red bull dust is king, I decided to buy a cheap pair of trail shoes. NB ( new balance). On special for $50 only and so so so comfy. My toes have plenty of room and can do the Cha Cha in it.
(Now if I try to wear the Ascic, they do not feel half as comfy as the NB trail shoes.)
Today the sport store had again a special of NB trail so off I went and now I am the proud owner of a new pair. On the picture it is the black and yellow one with the yellow laces. Don't they look wonderful?
I was also told by the sales person to alternate the shoes for every run to give time for the sole to bounce back.
