The time had now come, for me to say goodbye to my Mizuno Wave Alchemy's, and embrace my lovely New Balance 860v2's. Yes, my new running shoes are actually kind of girly, with pink striping and outline on the lettering. My old shoes were men's, and well, looked it. The downside of having large feet is they only supply one size eleven, per style, so I often slip over to the men's running shoes. Really, what's in a shoe, after all I was looking for comfort, but I felt so girly putting on these new found beauties.
Tonight I went for a power walk. The crickets were chirping, the cicadas were singing, and the sun was just lowering enough, to take away the intense heat of the day. It was a lovely 28˚C and I was gliding in my new shoes. It is early days, and I don't know if this affair is going to stick. I'll have to do another couple of walks before I know for sure, that these are the ones, and I don't have to trade them in for my second choice, the Saucony's.
