I hate shoes.
More accurately, I hate shoe shopping.
My feet are big. They are an odd size that isn’t normally carried on store shelves. I also have very narrow heels.
When I started taking up running (which was actually several years ago…this is just the latest incarnation), I knew that I needed to get some halfway decent shoes. I had tried running in some cheap ones that I used for walking, but they left my shins and ankles aching.
I went to the running store and they had me try on several different pairs. I settled on a pair of New Balance shoes. I paid way more money than I wanted to and walked out the door.
In the years since, I have gone shoe shopping several times. I have always tried on several different shoes, but it’s always the New Balance that I come back to. They are the only shoes that I have ever tried that have laced in such a way that they fit snuggly on my heels.
This is the pair I own right now. The WR645SL. They fit my feet wonderfully and I have very little pain after I am done running. I tie these babies on and I FEEL like a runner. They are that good.
I think I have finally figured it out. New Balance is the shoe for me!
