Well….. In all honesty I wear running shoes and heels and lots more! What can I say, I love shoes!
Currently I have four pairs of running shoes in my closet. Two pairs of Asics Gel-Cumulus and two pairs of Brooks Pure Cadence.
When I started becoming a more “serious” runner I was running in Nike’s. As my miles increased it became evident that the Nike’s I ran in were not right for me, so a stop at my local running me store landed me in a pair of Asics Gel-Cumulus 12. I ran in that model for well over a year before I became curious about running in a more minimalist shoe. That is when I took the plunge and bought a pair of Brooks Pure Cadence shoes. I loved how lightweight they were and how much more I could feel the surface I was running on compared to running in the Asics. However, I was too impatient to scale back my running and adjust to running in the Pure Cadence so eventually I stopped wearing them. BUT…. I have recently made the full transition to my Pure Cadence shoes and I just love them.
And although I love my Brooks shoes, that doesn’t stop me from ogling and lusting over other running shoes. The ones that have been piquing my interest lately are Newton running shoes. They are very different from other running shoes as they have more cushioning in the forefront of the shoe to help promote landing on the forefront of your foot as opposed to your heel. And they come in super awesome bright colors! I love a brightly colored running shoe. Who wants to blend in with the crowd?
So what’s stopping me from trying out a pair of Newton’s??? The hefty price tag. The ones pictured above are $155!
Have your tried out a pair of Newton running shoes? If so, what do you think? If not, what are your favorite pair of running shoes?
