New Kicks

I finally got some new running shoes, yay! (Birthday gift from the husband)
I have been wearing nike vomeros which I really liked, except I overpronate, especially in my right foot, and I wanted to try something with a little more stability. So, I went from this

to this

I picked these because the Asics all were listed under stability shoes, and the model I got won a best pick award, so I decided to try them out. I haven’t run in them yet, but I did walk around the house some and they feel alright, so we will see! I am trying to wait another couple weeks before I start using them, until I start my marathon training so they will last me awhile. I think the ones I have still have a few more miles in them.

Today was a rest day and tomorrow I will run here at the house, outside.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I am going to read up on the features of my new car!

QOTD: What brand of shoes do you run in?

  1. I am an asics wearer too!!!! I was in the kayanos for a couple years but just switched to the 2150s. Hope you love them like I do :)

  2. I just got a new pair of Brooks (my first pair!) a little over a month ago and I love them. They have tons of support in the arches because I pronate as well :)

    I just switched from Nike to Asics also. I wear the Gel Nimbus. Hope you love them!!

  5. Awsome shoes, I like the pink in them, they are soo cute. I wear Mizunos and I love them!! I tried Asics and switched to Mizunos. Your shoes are really nice. Enjoy them!

  6. I have the first pair that you switched from in pink! I love them :)

  7. I’ve been wearing Brooks Adrenaline for 7 years and I love them!

  8. New shoes day is the BEST! I hope you love them!
    I run on Mizuno Wave Riders, a neutral shoe. I love, love, love them. Recently I tried Brooks Ravenna and wasn’t thrilled with the fit. They runa little wide for me (but come in super cute colors!)

    I ran in an Asic trail shoe first and then I now have Brooks Defyance cause I am neutral with a high arch. But I still haven’t found the perfect shoe, eventually I will.

  10. I’m a Saucony Hurricane girl! I love them a lot! :0)

    Your new shoes are cute! It’s fun when you have a few colors to pick from! Running Warehouse is awesome, too!

  11. ASICS!!! I love them!!! I am thinking of trying out the five fingers though.

  12. i was a mizuno girl for a while, but recently switched to brooks.

  13. Have the exact same shoes and love them! Really did a lot of good to my shin splints! I know you will love them too.

    And what a generous husband you have; a car, shoes :) Lucky you! :)

  14. looks like the 2150’s? Good choice…they are a pretty popular seller in our store second only to the brooks adrenaline. if you pronate you definitely shouldn’t be in the volmeros. Hope you like them…keep us posted!

  15. asics all the way for me!! love them. i like to stretch my toes while running…i know sounds weird. usually on a long run of 8 miles or more, i like to stretch out my feel while still running and these shoes allow for this. i love them!

  16. Hi there! Just found your blog through skinny runner! I have these same running shoes and I LOVE them :) they are my second pair.

  17. Found you through Skinny Runner’s blog :) These are a couple models above my shoes. I wear the Asics 1140 (I tried the 2140 and they killed my heels, so I went back to my tried and true 1140s.) I just got my new shoes yesterday – I order them on shoes.com when they’re on sale. So I am going from pink to green.

    Hope the Asics work out well for you!
