I Can Run Now
I just got new tennis shoes! I just got new tennis shoes! I seem excited, don't I? Well, I am being hopeful this time. I must have become a shoe snob because this is the third pair I have bought in the past 6 months. The other two have hardly been worn because they just couldn't compare to the pair I already had at home. I wore the other two pair in the store for a while and I thought they were going to be fine but as soon as I got them home--YUCK! One pair walked my sock completely off my foot-- not to mention the blisters I got from the other pair! Well, today, I spent way too much money (sorry, honey) and bought some that came highly recommended. So far--so good! I am going to wear them in the house for a couple of days just to make sure but I am thinking these might be the ones. I had a foot injury nearly two years ago while visiting NYC. I walked so much in shoes without good support that I ended up with a plantar problem ( I know you wanted to know). I had pretty much gotten that taken care of by buying new shoes. Those shoes have worn out now, though, and my foot has been hurting again every time I exercise. So, wish me luck with these new ones...I sure hope they work!

I got new shoes too! I've been so excited about them all week! I don't buy tennis shoes often and the tennis shoes I've been wearing for a few years are actually too small b/c my foot grew with my third pregnancy. Sad, huh? I now have some brand spanking new gray New Balance 680 shoes with the light pink around the "N." I've been wanting them for a while, but I've been too cheap to splurge. I'm so glad I did! I LOVE THEM!!

Aren't new shoes fun?! I'm a flip flop girl but enjoy anything *new*! My very favorite tennis shoes are actually Nike Walking shoes. They look like running shoes but are so light on my feet. Love 'em! Hope you enjoy yours!

Hope they work for you too. Shoes make all the difference for me these days for both my feet and for my back. Ugh...getting old.

There must be something about shoes, huh? When I walk with a new pair, I make sure I don't bend my feet too much lest I crease the leather.

Have a great weekend.

Oooh, I am on the good shoe search, too. What I'm really wanting are those Skecher's Mary Janes. (I think they're called Bikers, oddly enough) But I'd really like a nice pair of Tennis Shoes, too. I hate spending money on shoes, but I'm tired of uncomfortable, useless shoes, too.
