New Running Shoes

Monday, March 26, 2012

Saturday I broke down and bought some new running shoes. My old ones are 2yrs old and are worn out at the back. I was really excited to use them on the treadmill only to find that they are slick on the bottom, so half way through my work out I switched back to my old shoes. Today I took sandpaper to the bottoms- hoping that would help, but that didn't do it either. Neither did double sided sticky tape- although it helped a little. I hope they will eventually wear down alittle and not be slick. Since they were on clearence( but they are NewBalance, like my others) they won't take them back.

    wear them outside and spin on each foot on the rough pavement, or wherever there is the roughest pavement. I had to do that with some dress shoes that made me feel like I was walking on ice, so slippery when they are new.

    was thinking of a new pair also. Bought our foster son a pair of New Balance shoes (he runs like the wind) and he loves them. Farm and Fleet carries them, and we heard they are (New Balance) the last running shoe made in the USA. Will have to get a pair of those, maybe in red/white/blue emoticon

    Running Shoes and Water Bottles! Running shoes get me, too, until I remember I have to break them in. They all give me blisters for the first 10 or so days I exercise in them. Thanks for your comment on the blog. And hope you find a shoe solution!

    That's too bad about being able to return them. Even on sale, walking shoes are expensive. Have a great day and good luck.

    Try walking on pavement and see if that helps. I bought my first pair of really good exercise shoes before my 5K race. They were fitted to my feet and the style was determined by the way I walked on a treadmill. They are really comfortable. But expensive. I will save them to use when exercising and bought myself a pair of new balance tor wearing everyday.
