I knew I should have bought 374575468 pairs of them when they were available. I can’t find these dang shoes anywhere. Not gonna lie, I loatheeee running shoes shopping.

I swear I have skinny, super flat feet, with major pronation, but everytime I get analyzed it says I have average width, high arched, slightly pronated feet. What gives?! You can just look at my foot and see that I have no arch whatsoever. I don’t need fancy equipment to show me that.

I am waffling between getting another pair of Mizunos (probably the wave inspire series) or Brooks. I have heard so many wonderful things about Brooks, so they might be worth a try. All I know is that I will miss you, Mizuno Wave Nirvana 6’s.

mizuno wave inspire 7sBrooks Ghost 3’s

    Go to Super Jock n Jill at Greenlake. They will MAKE you try on multiple pairs of shoes and MAKE you run outside and up the little hill outside the store to make sure you like the feel. They really want you to have the right shoes for you.

    I only wear Brooks Adrenaline. They’re not pretty, but I have not had any injuries in the 8 years I’ve been wearing them. (Had IT band issues when I use to switch around.) It’s so important to find the right shoe for you.

  2. I wear Asics, which have never given me any trouble. But it’s all about making those feet of yours happy!
