There s nothing like a good pair of running shoes. There is nothing worse than a bad pair of shoes!
I bought a new pair of Adidas Boost running shoes. They were awesome! Light weight, cushiony, perfect summer shoes! Not so sure how they would be in the winter.
When I bought my shoes, they told me my left foot is about a half size smaller than my right foot. I am not sure if this is residual from the biking accident - or if my feet are getting to be different sizes as I get older. I also have get stability shoes. Anyhow, these shoes seemed to accommodate my feet without me having to buy two pair..... until recently.
Now my left shoe is giving me blisters on my foot - on the end of my big toe and also on the outside edge of my heel. I tried tying them tighter, looser, heavier socks, wool socks, nothing seemed to make it better.
My old shoes were a pair by Saucony which were wonderful - but I had them over a year and they were starting to give me blisters on my left heel. UGH!
I find it hard to believe I need new shoes already. Hoping the shoe guys can come up with something. All this walking to Missouri is taking its toll on my knees and feet!
I will be so glad when I get there! The first thing I am going to do is find a hotel with a swimming pool and hot tub and take a day off walking! In the meantime, I am gingerly walking forward.
Anyone else have shoe issues?
