There’s no way around it. I destroy tennis shoes. Not to mention that I walk like a penguin. My dad and sister do too. It runs in the family.
Since I decided to starting running more (a lot more)–there was an immediate need for new kicks. Unfortunately, going to Fleet Feet on a Tuesday afternoon isn’t my favorite experience. You see, a person who walks like a penguin typically gets gawked at in those stores. Whenever they tell me to run across the store so they can “check my gait,” I know I run even more awkwardly, over correcting to make my feet trot in a straight line, rather than pointing outward like a obtuse triangle.
As I waited for the trained foot professional to diagnose my training needs (they really said that and I almost laughed out loud) and browsed through my normal choices: Aisics or Nike. But ultimately, I chose these shoes. Anyone ever heard of Mizunos?
Can’t wait to destroy them.
