and they’re not even cute. well, not in the traditional cute shoes sense.
alex and i made a visit to peachtree running company tonight and had ourselves fitted for new (aka not the cheapest) running shoes. like actual made for running shoes. not what’s on sale at belks. okay, alex had nicer shoes. i paid a whopping $35 for mine and well, they weren’t the most supportive. the tops of my feet kept flaring up and i knew i needed something different.
the fitting process is pretty intense. they check out your stance, make you stand on some contraption that checks the pressure of your feet, and run and run and run. apparently everyone “pronates” to some degree. i’m a moderate overpronator which means my foot rolls a bit to the outside. alex is a severe overpronater. yikes. 🙂
we tried on about 5 or 6 pairs each and each walked out with a brand new pair. WAHOO!
we both happened to pick out mizuno’s (which i had never heard of until about 3 hours ago) and we’re psyched.
