My Feet Need Shoes

Posted: Updated:

Feet are kind of important. They do a lot for us. So when you’re making them work a lot, it’s important to take care of them. I haven’t been.

I’ve been feeling some shin splints coming on lately and my feet really take a beating every time I try to run outside. New shoes are needed. So I went to the Colorado Running Company to look into what I needed to be wearing.

I stood on a fancy machine to get my feet scanned. I learned that most of my weight rests on my heels and my feet are slightly different sizes. I actually knew that last part, just not how different. I broke my foot at 6th grade camp and my shoes sizes have been ever so slightly different ever since.

Apparently the shoes I’ve been wearing are half a size too small, which may explain why they’re starting to get worn out near the toes. I’ve also been wearing my shoes too narrow. It seems a wide fitting shoe would work best for me.

We tried on a couple options and tested them out on the treadmill and with a quick jog outside. They felt pretty nice! So much more support! I think they’re absolutely right about the sizing changes.

Best part? The difference when I put my old shoes back on. It was amazing to feel the lack of support and just how much they were broken in. They recommend changing shoes after around 300-500 miles and I think these shoes have probably withstood that already. So it’s time for some new kicks! Hopefully they help with the outdoor runs- I’m still struggling with those. Fingers crossed!

    Squatters take over a Pueblo woman's home and refuse to leave. Sound like a familiar case?   As News 5 Investigates has reported, police often can't do anything about these situations until homeowners evict the squatters. Lawmakers are hoping to change that next year with new legislation that will offer more protections for homeowners dealing with squatting situations. The final touches are being put on the bill this week. As soon as we have a copy of the bill, we'll s...
