Invest in Your Feet

These are similar to my new shoes

When was the last time you invested in your feet? You don't have to break the bank to find a good pair of walking or running shoes, but it is important.  I like to have a pair of tennis shoes that is just for exercise, walking or running. I got a new pair last week and wow, they feel fantastic! I went to Footzone and they watched me walk, then measured my feet. Can you believe they recommended one whole size larger then I had been wearing?! My other shoes did not feel tight at all, but the secret is a little room in your toes but no slippage or slogging around on the rest of the shoe. I think I have put about 10 miles on them and so far, so good.
It was funny because they wanted to film my feet running on a treadmill with the new shoes on to make sure the fit was ok for my step. I don't do treadmills!! Thanks goodness it was only 30 seconds, 'cause I would have been really embarrassed had I fallen off! LOL They didn't have me going that fast but because I wasn't used to it it felt like I was going really fast. I'm already the type of person that gets intimidated easily...especially if it has anything to do with sports..

But, I lived to tell you all about it and I highly recommend a "professional" fit from a walking or running store.

How's everybody's week going? I'm trying to lose a few pounds but not one has budged! I'm back to tracking and drinking more water.


  1. I love the picture on the header!

    This post could not have come at a better time. I have worn out both my pairs and it is high time that I go and get new pair of shoes. As much as we know the right things to do, reminders are always a good thing!
    I am not much of a treadmill walker either.. I think I would even look funny..
    Walking everyday.. minimum three miles
    No weight loss.. just feeling great:)

  2. Unfortunately AFAIK there's no such professional service like Footzone here :( If there was it WOULD break the bank!

    Will try to start walking again tomorrow morning.

  3. I am hoping to get to the shoe store tomorrow for a new pair - just waiting for a coupon and a sale :)
    still drinking water - pretty good with my fitness journal, and very good with my mileage!

  4. Just took my new shoes for a nice run.
