So I have this theory that when you slip the right running shoe on your foot you’ll just know.
You’ll take those first few steps and think, “YES! I found it, this is IT!”
It’ll be a perfect fit like Cinderella’s glass slipper.
I’m currently in the market for some new running shoes and I’m having a problem…
I’m not finding my glass slipper!
I’ve tried on pair, after pair, after pair and I just can’t decide on anything! (Plus I’m sure I’m driving the staff at my local Marathon Sports CRAZY! Luckily it’s my friend Dave and my husband though, so at least one of them is used to dealing with my crazy!)
I’ve never been hugely married to one brand when it comes to running shoes. I’m currently rotating between 3 different brands for all my running, but unfortunately the two I use for long distance are on their way out and desperately need to be replaced!
One of the great things about attending the Marathon Sports run club is that we occasionally have a reps from different running companies come with sneakers for us to demo on our runs – it’s such a great way to try out new brands and running gear!
Recently a rep from Hoka One One came and that definitely added to my confusion! I had never really considered running in Hoka’s before, but after trying them out at run club last week I really liked them!
Then I tried on a pair of New Balance, which I’ve never run in either, and I really liked them too!
The problem is I’m not 100% sold on either.
As part of my “research” I even took my Brooks Launch lobster shoes out for a run (they had previously only been indoor/ wear to work shoes).
Fortunately a quick run ruled those out as my “glass slipper”.
So I’ve narrowed it down to 3…and I REALLY need to just make a decision!
Seriously, does anyone else have this much trouble deciding on sneakers or is it just me?!?
