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!
