I was way past due for new running shoes. Minor knee pain warns me when it is absolutely time to buy shoes. Usually, the pain is gone in 3 days or less once new shoes are purchased. I bought asics GT-2160 shoes in White/Lightning/Royal. Lightning is a color??
The new shoes are just what the doctor ordered: stiff with good cushioning. As opposed to the lightweight, flexible shoes I prefer. Maybe if (when!) I lose 23 more pounds I can go back to lighter shoes but for now these will do. They fit so well that I am about to order a second pair through Holabird Sports where they are $30 cheaper with no shipping charges than at my local running store.
I ran a little over 7.5 mostly hilly miles in the new shoes this morning. No complaints.
Size 13, in case you were wondering.
