I am a creature of habit. Especially about certain things in my life.
I do believe that my running shoes fit into that "certain things" category. I like what I like. I'm used to what I'm used to.
When I got to being serious about the running, I went to my local Fleet Feet store and got myself fitted for the right shoe for me. And I kept going back for this wonderful shoe because it worked for me. It worked well.
Fast forward a couple of years when the beloved shoe company (who shall remain nameless*) changed the design of my beloved shoe and the upgrade of said shoe is not the same at all and my beloved shoe is no more.
Here's my dilema and my question: I returned to Fleet Feet with my issues and we got me set up with a new brand of shoe. I'm having a hard time getting used to my new shoes, but this morning's run went MUCH better than a few weeks ago. I was told that getting used to one kind of shoe is not the best idea. Of course, I found this out about a month ago. Have any of you had the same issue? Does everyone vary the brand/model of shoe?
It just so happens that I found a pair of the 'old' style of shoe that I loved on the internet (Bless you, Amazon) and I bought it. I've been alternating between the two pairs of shoes. But oh my stars, I love the 'old' school shoes...my feet love them even more.
I'm frustrated...and just want to love the shoes equally. Am I hoping for a miracle?
