I am linking up today with Mel and Laura to talk about my favorite running shoes. 
Well, if you have read any of my recent posts then you know that I just bought my first pair of real running shoes. 
Womens ASICS GEL-Neo33 Running Shoe
Before these I have only had cross trainers.  Which I always thought I needed because my cute little feet are a little fat so I always thought that running shoes would be to narrow for me. 
Well, I did some research and went into Performance Footwear and was professionally sized.  It is an interesting process that I think anyone could do, they didn't tell me anything that I hadn't learned from researching on the internet.  I figured out that I should buy a stability shoe in a size 7, I usually wear a 6 or 6 1/2.  I guess I just thought there was so much more to it.  But it seems it is just a game of trial and error.  Buy a pair, wear 'em, if you like them and they feel good, great, if you don't, well, then hopefully you bought them somewhere with a good return policy.  Mel seems to have had a better experience with her fitting, maybe I should have gone to Fleet Feet and been fitted instead of Performance Footwear but I had heard they were pretty equivalent, I don't know.  But I did buy my shoes from a website that gives me 3 months to wear them and see if I like them, if not I can exchange for another pair.
So far I am loving my new pair of Asics gel-neo33.  Granted, I have only worn these shoes for one run but they were aMAZING!!!
So comfortable, they are snug but it felt like I was being held perfectly.  Super supportive and just all around felt great.
Sorry I don't have more to share about them, give me a week and then ask again. 
But they are SUPER cute, see.


  1. congratulations on your new pair. Running shoes are addictive!!

  2. New follower here! Pls check out my blog @ www.homemadehappenings-erin.blogspot.com

    Cute kiddos! :)

  3. Thanks for linking up! And what website did you buy them from?! I am in need of a store that will allow me to return the shoes if I don't like them, but I'm talking about running in them for a month and then deciding....not sure if a return policy like that exists. I have a pair of Asics, too...you're going to love them! They hug your feet so well, which is better than having shoes where your feet slosh around.

  4. oh wow, that is a great deal. I need to use that website to buy my runnning shoes!

  5. I had Asics before I got my mizunos and LOVED them! I was bummed Fleet Feet didnt carry Asics actually...

  6. What website did you use? I would love to buy some with a policy like that. I've always thought it is tough to get running shoes because you don't really know how you will like them until you get several good runs in. I think I'm going to try Fleet Feet this weekend. We also have a store called Breakaway that is supposed to tell you which is the best shoe for you too.

  7. I really love my local Fleet Feet! That's where I got fitted and they allow returns. I have never heard of a shoe website that allows a return. That's an awesome deal!
