Yay my turn for a new shoes post!
It was necessary because my old faves had holes in them. 😊
I had noticed a billboard pointing down a side street to an ‘up and running’ shop in our local town so I went there. It was the smallest running shop I have ever seen! There was a treadmill squeezed between the shop window and the counter and just enough room to walk around in an ‘L’.
It was all there though! With an emphasis on fell running/trails. On display they had brooks, asics,saucony, hoka, inov8, saloman and ‘Walsh’. Walsh being heavily cleated fell running shoes made in Bolton. I might go back for a pair of those in the spring.
I tried on some Hokas, which to me felt odd with all that mid foot support- like being on rockers. I’m not a heel striker so I didn’t know it they’d work for me. So I just bought another pair of the same again! Asics cumulus😊 They have always done well for me!
I tried them out (in the rain) last night and they were fine. The blue colour scheme will complement my running wardrobe!😎
