I’ve been pounding the pavement (well, really the treadmill, the track and the elliptical) for the last 2.5 years in my trusty Brooks. I keep telling myself that they still look fine and work fine, so they’re still fine to use, but really it is time for new running shoes. I think the guideline is something like 1 year/150 miles. Well, we’re way beyond that. Happily, I ordered a new pair of shoes yesterday!
I’ve had bad luck with running shoes giving me painful blisters, so I love that these come with a 15 day trial period. There’s nothing worse than picking out new running shoes, taking them out for a spin, realizing that they’re just not going to work, and not being able to return them. That’s why I’ve never ordered running shoes online before (at least you minimize the risk by getting fitted at a specialty running store). The trial period is an all around win for me!
And Baby Beez certainly has more shoes than she needs, but I just couldn’t help myself from sharing the bright-color fun with her too.
