Has anyone noticed their feet getting bigger as a result of running?
I don't mean expanding while running. I know that the running shop tells us to buy a size larger shoes than our normal shoes as our feet expand while running as they get hot. I dont mean that.
My shoe size has been 7 since I was in my early 20s, I'm now 52. When I bought my last pair of ordinary shoes after having been running for six months or so I found that I needed size 8. I put this down to shoe size designations changing a bit. But then when I bought my new running shoes on saturday I was surprised to find that I needed size 9, wheras my Brooks Ghost7s are size 8.5.
My weight hasnt changed significantly so I dont think that that is the reason.
It could just be that the shoe size designations are changing, but I'm wondering, because my normal shoes are starting to feel a bit snug.
I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had similar experiences
