Time For Shoes...

Friday, July 01, 2011

Today we went shoe shopping. One of sports stores is closing and had a 40% off ticketed price sale happening. All the shoes are already marked down and then another 40% off - couldn't pass up seeing what they had. I needed new runners, my Asics 1140 have had it for working out in.
I came home with 2 pairs - a pair of Asics 1150 ($60. reg. $120) and a pair of Columbia trail shoes ($40. regular $90). Seeing as I'm going to be spending alot of time outside hiking I opted to get a shoe with some grip, especially for the price. Last thing I want is to be slipping and falling out on the trails. Hubby ended up getting a pair of Saucony runners ($48. reg. $145). He hasn't worn runners for about 14 yrs, he lives in work boots.
I'm going to head to another store in the city on Monday and see if I can find another pair of trail shoes that I liked but this store didn't have in my size. While they have them for this price hubby agreed I should get an extra pair.

Also an update on the Reebok Easy Tones. I've had them since April and I have noticed a difference. It's not a dramatic, everyone can see difference when I wear them. But my calves are tighter and when I wear heels then it is noticeable. My booty is firmer, has a ways to go but that will come with working out too. These differences have been while I haven't been to fully exercise since falling in Feb/March and injuring my tailbone. It's been mainly from just walking around the house and when I go out grocery shopping and such. I'm happy with the results, I have better balance and posture from wearing them and I'd probably get them again for the right price.
