Running Shoes gone bad!

As a runner, it is imperative to have the best running shoes for your feet. One article I read said the condition of your feet, is the condition your body is in.. Interesting thought eh?? The condition of your feet reflects your health! Hrrm..

 It got me thinking.. Every time I get out and run, I am pounding my feet on the pavement and my shoe is hitting that pavement. That puts stress on knees, joints, feet and ankles.. The constant pounding isn't good without the proper shoes.. Every since then, I have spent good money on decent running shoes... I have learned it's not always about price that determines a good running shoe, but more often than not, good shoes are expensive!

I need a new pair of running shoes, but here is the biggest challenge... Finding my shoe size!!! 8.5 is one of the most popular sizes and I can never find my shoe size.. When I go looking for running shoes, the first thing I ask for is what size they have in stock and then I start looking at shoes...

Who wants fall in love with a pair of shoes to find out they dont have your size? How many times has that happened to anyone??? Happens to me all the time!!!

Well, I found these awesome shoes!! I was so excited!!! They are ASICS Gel- Neo 33 High Performance Running Shoes!  They are so comfortable when you put them on, in my size and not to mention pretty sweet looking.. Yesterday, I was walking in them to break them in for my short/ long run today.... What you're about to read may be considered DANGEROUS!

My excited self...

 Wasn't so excited after my 4 mile run!

These shoes are AWFUL! My feet hurt the entire time, my knees were on fire and my ankles felt like they might break off! The pain was unbearable! I have never had a problem with any of the running shoes I have purchased in the past.. Even new shoes.. Previously, I might have had to break them in, but breaking these in, wasn't going to make a difference..

My first reaction: was the fact that they are a new pair of shoes, my second reaction: not the right support for my feet... Third Reaction: not for me!

Back to the store they went.. When I returned them, the lady told me others had returned similar shoes in different colors.. I was sad! I am now back at square one looking for running shoes! Sigh..

What size shoe are you?? Do you have the same problems finding shoes?? What is your favorite brand to run in??

I normally wear a size 7 in dress shoes and an 8 or 8 1/2 in running shoes. I have wide feet, so I'm a pretty devoted New Balance user. My current ones are the 1260. Bad shoes are the worst! I've learned the hard way that spending time in a running store to get fitted properly is totally worth it!

I was recommended this shoes, althought they are very different then what I normally run in, I thought I would give them a try. I don't think I will go out of my comfort zone again!!

Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one

If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can
recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
