My New Running Shoes





Here are my (much needed) new running shoes. Sooo....... what do you think? Aren't they just the cutest! After my sole fell of my last pair ( that were almost 9 yrs old ), I was in need of a new pair. I was not happy about it either because my last pair were soooo comfy and plus we really did not need to be spending the money! So How did I get these??


Well .....after saving money from groceries for a couple of weeks (from couponing), I had enough to buy these. I looked everywhere for 3 weeks until I finally found a pair that was comfortable enough and that I loved! I was giving up hope there for a while, because all the running shoes I was trying on were not comfortable at all.


When I found these they were on sale for $59.95 (from $92). But then I realized they were kids. ugh. They had a chart beside them that showed the size of children's and women's and I found out that I can were a 6 in kids. (I wear a 7.5 in Nike's, the womens were $95 - $130.) Plus.... they were the most comfortable shoes that I had tried on!


I have been running in them for a few weeks now and I love them, plus my knee and ankle do not hurt anymore while I run! Ya!!! The shocks give a lot of spring and absorb the jolt while running. I never feel my heels touch the ground.


Here is a little visual for ya....... Karlton always tells me I look like a little bunny hopping down the road. Well at least he did not say a dog, horse , or a cow. At least bunnies are cute! Right?!Ha! Ha!

You're never supposed to run in shoes for longer than 6 months TOPS...or 500 miles whichever comes first... I have had like 8 pairs of Nike Air Max Structure Triax... Those are the ONLY shoes I will run in... I've tried other brands, but I'm a Nike girl! Tell Karlton to video you bunny hopping!
