Running is turning me grey! 😁

I've been a prude so far and kept away from temptation with the trainer πŸ‘Ÿ porn. Needed a holiday clothes shop so it was a good enough excuse to order myself a 3rd generation of grey runners. Weren't supposed to arrive until sometime tomorrow so a nice surprise and may give them a spin for W9R1 tomorrow 😊

Had intended to treat myself to gait analysis after graduation but I've always found these Adidas cloudfoams to be pretty gentle on my feet, and keep my feet pretty cool.

I really should have thrown them away but the grotty old first pair on the left were what I had used 2 years ago on my first CT5K attempt (now relegated to dog walk shoes) . 2nd have been my lucky trainers so far (so may have to switch back if I fail tomorrow!) but they have started to feel a bit stretched of late.

Now back to the ironing 😒...

That is one of the tests you do. Try them on. If they're comfy that's one less battle!

Adidas were my choice of football boots but I've never tried their running shoes...

Maybe my next pair ❓❔

I actually didn't this try them this time around and was pretty much an impulse buy, so think I just got lucky 😁 and the vid below sold me. They were pretty cheap so not a huge gamble either as they looked pretty much a newer version of what I've been using. Definitely worth just going into shops and trying different pairs though if Gait analysis isn't the preferred option for your next pair. youtube.com/watch?v=8wslckn...

Nice shoe porn :)

You will grey-t-ly do your next run. Just be careful not to fly away, as they look so cloudy light and heavenly :)

Good luck! Not that you need it ;) Just go and smash that run!

I absolutely swear by Adidas ultraboost trainers. Started with cloud foam but ultraboost are much lighter and like running barefoot in clouds! Even converted my husband from a die hard Nike fan!

Awesome, watched a video about them yesterday and ultra boosts were highly recommended too, so may put a pair on my wishlist (These were pretty well discounted - so may keep as a day pair). As much as the sole I just find the inside fits my feet so well, every Nike trainer I've tried has felt too narrow or constrictive.

I find nikes quite narrow too. Apart from my nike air max thea but they are a hybrid day shoe. I got my ultraboost from a local outlet with Β£100 discount! If you look on m and m direct they are normally on sale too. Make sure you size up thou if you do get some

yep will do, think I may just have pretty wide feet too. Had the same with a pair of hiking boots that ended up giving me nasty blisters because they were just a little bit too narrow. Hah my girlfriend just found that site last week actually and went on a shoe frenzy with it! πŸ˜‚ Will have a think on, I'd like these trainers as an everyday pair - so may just use that as an excuse to justify another pair just for running. (Before I make these too smelly!)

Have you got a runners need nearby? Or any other sports shop? I know runners need definitely stock them, maybe give them a try before you commit. And I'm 100% with your girlfriend, that website is dangerous for shoes and trainers πŸ˜‚
