A view from my side.
I’ve decided to run a half in late March. I haven’t picked the site yet, but there are so many choices I’m not too worried. Some place flat comes to mind…Florida anyone? But I digress…new shoes, yes, that’s it.
It’s time for a new pair. Since I haven’t done any serious training in quite some time, I haven’t been in the shoe market. The shoes I’m running in now I’ve had for longer than I’d care to admit. Buying new shoes has become such a complicated endeavor. I found out years ago that I have a tendency to over pronate, every so slightly, so I know I need a shoe that provides some stability. Since I’ve decided to run a longer distance, I’ve slowed down a bit and the result has been a shorter stride.
I’m looking at the New Balance 870 V2 and the Nike LunarGlide+ 4. Both appear to have decent reviews and, like all shoes, have their pros and cons. I’m looking for a shoe to train for and run a half in late March. Like all things, people have their opinions. So why not ask…what shoes are you using and what are their pros and cons?
