The strangest NSV !

Monday, January 04, 2021

I have worn the bottom of my sneakers out. Yes, I walked that much this year! I baby my feet after having plantar fasciitis twice. Anyways the sneakers that I wear now are Hoka. I love how they make my feet feel. So the local store that I buy them at has a discount room. I went there first to see if they had any my size. They did not. Then I tried a half a size smaller. I put them on and walked around and they fit. My last pair I bought was wide and these were not. So I was skeptical and decided to go downstairs and try the ones that were not on sale. I tried both the smaller size and the larger size on. Sure enough the smaller size fit. I measured my foot in that metal thingy... And sure enough I had lost a half a size. and my feet were narrower.

Who knew that my weight loss would produce smaller feet. I will take this as a non scale victory.

I ended up going back to the discount room and buying the shoes that were on sale annd I saved myself 50 dollars!

Maybe I will reward myself with a much needed pedicure.

    My daughter Hayburner runs in Hokas.
    My ortho guy told me that as we age we lose fat on our feet, especially on the bottom.
    I told him I'd prefer it was from my hips but I'll take what I can get.

    Having the right shoes for your particular type of feet is so important to avoid injury.
    Glad you found what works.

    I don't think I have heard of that brand of shoes...........where did you find them?? Do you
    have a particular style you wear???

    I have a right foot I broke at work when a pallet fell on me, then another minor bad bruising when my
    bike tipped on me, the left one, is a mess also, from a to the bone cut at the lake as a teen, and later
    one of my horses stepped on it...........and as she pivoted off it was black n blue for a long time....

    Have a terrific time with the pedicure...........you're a beautiful lady.
