I Think They Need To Be Retired

It’s that time, okay it’s actually way past that time. My first pair of running shoes that I actually only wore for running/run training, are in need of a rest. As in I probably shouldn’t wear them anymore because I’ve put many miles on them. Around 750 miles to be exact.
They were great little shoes I never experienced shin splints, foot or heel pain, and no blisters were had. That in my book makes for an excellent pair of shoes. I have a new pair sitting in a box waiting for me to break them out, but I’m still testing out a new brand to me SKORA. And, so far so good I love them too. They offer a bit more cushion then the Merrells which is nice and they have a removable insole which the Merrells do not have. Either way I may have found 2 new favorite running shoes. I definitely have one and SKORA looks to be coming in as a favorite as well.
So thank you Merrells for being my first pair of truly dedicated running shoes. You have been amazing but you can rest now. I still love you and may just wear you with some shorts and a tank as I walk the mall or whatever. But, you will no longer have to endure miles of hitting the pavement.

As you can see the tread is a little worn in some spots but they’ve held up really well for how many miles have been put on them.
Do you have a pair of shoes that you absolutely love?

New Kicks

This morning the FedEx man delivered my new running shoes. They would of been here last week, but with us heading out of town I had FedEx put them on a vacation hold.
Anyway, this morning they arrived. I haven’t tried them out yet, other than to make sure they fit. But, they felt pretty awesome.
I love the barefoot/minimalist sneakers I don’t think I’ll ever go back to regular sneakers again. I have some New Balance, Nike, and Merrells. I’m currently running in my Merrell’s and I love them. I actually didn’t even get shin splints when I first started run training which I ALWAYS get, so right there was love.
The new kicks are again the barefoot type made by SKORA. I’ve never tried their sneakers before, but when they are having a sale and thanks to EveryMove I had $30 off a pai of sneakers I figured why not. I ended up paying half price for them. And, well if I don’t like them for running I have a cute pair of sneakers to wear.
I’ll let you know how I like them after a few weeks of testing them out.
Here’s a pic of them:
