Say hello to my new babies!
The first thing I’d like to say about these shoes is that they are very comfortable. I have a very arched foot and these shoes have enough cushioning to help stabilize my feet. It also has sufficient amount of support on the heel, which makes it feel like your foot is bouncing off the ground with each step! Even with all the cushion it has the shoe is very light. They’re perfect for long distance running.
The shoes run true to size. I am a size 6 in most shoes (except heels) and the 6 fit perfectly. The shoes are a bit wider than most of their other shoes. I went from the Nike Flyknit and I can definitely tell a difference, but since my foot is a little wide they give me the perfect amount of room while fitting snug in all the right places.
Lastly, these shoes look great! I love the design and the colors. Nike has provided a great selection of colors. I’m glad that the pair I got aren’t too bright and crazy. I tend to get the basic black and white, but I really appreciated the small pops of color that weren’t too overwhelming.
I plan on running my first half marathon race in these shoes and I am super excited. I will post an update of my thoughts on the shoes after the event.
Read about my experience when purchasing the shoes:
I purchased these shoes in a local business about 40 minutes away from where I live. The store is called “Rush Running” and it was an AMAZING experience.
When I walked in a representative came out as immediately asked me if I had heard of how they did things in their store. I told him that I had heard they would fit me into the right shoe for running. He said I was correct and had me take off my shoes.
He went to the back room and brought back a pair of shoes for me to slip on. They had me get on a treadmill and had me run for about 15-30 seconds. They then had me watch my steps and explained what I was doing right and what I should work on to avoid getting hurt.
After they analyzed how I ran they gave me some tips and brought back 3 different types of shoes that would help with my long distance running.
I got to try on all three and I got to run all around the store to see which was the best fit.
It was a wonderful experience! I would definitely recommend doing this simply for the experience!
