Hi, lovelies, T minus 5 days to my marathon whoop whoop. I got a new pair of Nike running shoes, especially for my Marathon. My old ones were getting tight and uncomfortable and causing me toe pains. I actually had to go to the podiatrist for a minor toe surgery to get the pain taken care of from my big right toe. it had been going on for months and had become a bit unbearable. Afterwards, i realized I could not train so many miles in them so I started to use hubby’s own running shoes lol. Not a good idea either cause his own was a bit big and he complained about me possibly getting them spoiled lollll. Anyway, so finally resolved to get a new pair for myself.
I started searching for a great pair and eventually found these after several searches and reviews. So far I love them! They are the Nike air zoom pegasus 34.
I went to the store and tried it out first, however, they had had the Pegasus 33 and not the 34 which I wanted. Anyway, I tried it on and I usually wear a 9 in running shoes but these were a tad bit tight with socks on so I tried the 10 which was perfect. They are very comfortable and provide great support. I feel like I am walking on air in them lol. They had so many great colors especially in pink but I usually get pink so decided to stay away from pink.
I love the breathable mesh over the toe area. I had this pair of running shoes that was so hot during summer because the mesh over the toes was so sealed up. I love wearing socks with my running shoes so its a huge deal for my shoes to be breathable. One annoying thing though are the laces. I feel they are a bit long and come undone a few times. Even when its not undone, its so long sometimes i feel like its undone.
The shoes really fit like a glove and i love that they are light weight which is important for running. Its hard enough running, imagine having heavy shoes on as well arghhh.
What are your favorite running shoe brands?
