April Good For My Feet Favorites

Monday, April 28, 2014

I don't know what happened to me and keeping track of my health per se, but I have been doing a not-so-good job of it within the past few months. One day I stepped on the scale and I am 10 pounds heavier. That is just not acceptable. I had worked hard to get where I was and I'm not going to put the extra weight back on.

Lately I've been trying to stay active by walking and running. But I had been in somewhat desperate need for new running shoes. My closet is full of shoes with about 10% of them being athletic shoes. Sounds like I really needed them right?! But the fact is, I hadn't gotten a new pair of running shoes in almost 5 years. I've put a lot of miles on the shoes I have. So I did kind of need a new pair.

Luckily when I was down in Charleston, I found some super cute Under Armour shoes that were on sale. Cute and a sale... What could be better?! Oh also John bought them for me. Cherry on top, y'all!

So as I said before, these shoes were on sale at the Under Armour outlet in Charleston. But they have been extremely wonderful running shoes with the minor exception of breaking them in by getting blisters on my heels the first time I wore them.

After breaking them in, they are everything I need in a running shoe. Although my old Nike's were the most comfortable things in the world, they were a bit clunky. But no longer do I have to worry about my feet being weighed down. These puppies feel like I'm wearing nothing. They are incredibly light and I love how they feel.

I tried to take notice of what I loved about them while I was running. Besides feeling like my feet are weightless, they also get great breath-ability. I'm pretty sure that's not a word, but it needs to be. The top part is a mesh-like material which allows air flow in the shoe. I don't recall any of my other shoes allowing my feet to actually feel the fresh air. It's a very cool new experience.

All around I love the support I get with these shoes. I do believe they have been the best gift John has given me thus far. I am so in love with them.

I also wanted to invite y'all to stop back in tomorrow because I'll be talking about how I'm trying to lose this weight I've magically gained.

  1. It's always nice to have good running shoes! I have tried SO many brands... the only two that work for me anymore are Asics and New Balance, but I've been sticking with just Asics (I have three different pairs) for the past year or so. I LOVE them. Yours are really cute. :)
