NEW SHOES

FEBRUARY 23, 2021



New Shoes

When it comes to leisure sneakers, I'm a big fan of the K-Swiss brand and have been for a long time. After wearing out my old shoes, I recently picked up a pair of the men's ST329 CMF sneakers and really like them! K-Swiss considers that shoe a 'cult classic' so I guess that means I'm part of their cult.

Now, when it comes to running shoes, I'm an Asics guy all the way. I placed an order with Amazon for my new shoes and was supposed to receive them two days ago (Sunday.) Instead, I received them early (Friday), the same day I received my second Covid-19 vaccine injection. Well, yesterday (Monday) I finally got to try them out and it was a great experience as usual.

It's amazing to me how easy it is to get used to bad (old!) running shoes and accept the wear and tear on my feet, no to mention the rest of my body. When I've been running with those old shoes for far too long, the first few days in those new running shoes becomes such a dramatically different experience that I feel like I'm out running on thick, comfortable, carpet.

I also like New Balance and even Nike, but over many thousands of miles the Asics Gel's have consistently proven to be the best running shoe for me. The stability, toe construction, and over-all feel for my feet makes the Asics Gel's my go-to running shoe and a real winner for all of the distance races I've run over the years and all of the training I'm doing these days. The way I'm going on, you'd think Asics was paying me LOL!

I was so much looking forward to getting out with them that I failed to do my daily weather radar check or I probably wouldn't have taken a chance on getting out at the point I did. Fortunately, I got home before any rain arrived.

After a quick look at the radar, since Patty was still out walking, I was persuaded to hop in the car with an umbrella in case Patty needed it. She was less than a mile from the house when I met up with her and she took the umbrella. As it turns out, she opened it up on the last tenth of a mile - which is where the pavement from the end of the highway meets the dirt road that leads to our house. Fortunately, it was just a light drizzle.

Oh, one other thing! As usual with the new shoes, I forgot that those thick and round shaped lacess don't tend to stay tied very well (especially when they're new) and I forgot to double knot them. I had to pause not once but twice in the last tenth of a mile to re-tie each shoe. I would say lesson learned, but it will probably happened again since I tend to go a long time between new shoes.
