I need new workout shoes. I’ve had my current shoes for about a year now, and I’m embarrassed to tell you about the shape they are in. On both shoes, on the front part of the soles (under my forefoot) I can see the plastic. The rubber/foam part of the sole is…gone. Seriously. I need shoes like..yesterday.
I was sort of holding out for Christmas, in hopes that my dad would get me some new shoes, cause he likes to do that, but alas..no shoes materialized under the tree. I am no waiting for pay day (tomorrow) to buy some shoes.
The past five pairs of shoes I purchased for working out were running shoes. I was attempting to be a runner after all. Now that I am no longer looking in that direction, I’m wondering if I shouldn’t look into a cross training shoe. I’ve been doing some research and talking to my brother (who is a crossfitting fool) and I know that I probably need a little less cushion than if I were running. Which, thankfully….translates into lower cost shoes! Hooray!
and about these:
But…I feel so brand loyal to Asics that I’m wondering if I shouldn’t try out these.
But maybe, Asics should stick to what they know and they know running and Nike is the better way to go?
Also, I can go to a running store and get fitted for running shoes and talk to experts. For a cross training shoe I just have to go to a big box store, or order online and hope for the best?
