This is a picture of my current running shoe selection… yes CURRENT. I have about 4 pairs that I am wearing regularly, plus some new ones, plus trail shoes, and others that I wear occasionally. I’ve been buying all my shoes lately in the US when I’ve been down on trips, and thankfully, I don’t have anymore trips planned for at least 6 months.
I tried out one of my newest pairs this morning. Newton Gravities. I think I love them!! I know people who love Newton’s, love them, and think they are miracle shoes. I’m excited to run more in them and see if they work for me. I have worn other minimalist type shoes, but haven’t found anything that I could wear on long runs, or run a lot of distance in. Newton’s are supposed to be different because they have more cushioning.
I doubt I’ll go to just wearing any one pair. Since my achilles injury during marathon training 2 years ago, I’ve really grown to love running in different shoes. I think it keeps my body guessing, keeps all the supporting ligaments and muscles around my ankles strong and agile (or at least this is what I tell myself to justify my habit…)
How many pairs of running shoes do you have? Do you rotate through them, or just stick to one main pair?
