Monday Moves -- New Running Shoes -- ASICS

Oh my goodness, girls! I got new shoes, and these are not of the high heel variety. No, this woman who never wears running shoes, just bought two pairs and my, oh my, were they pricey!

I just paid $250 for shoes and sports socks and I feel good! I went to Sport Chek, and the guy there (he was the manager) knew his stuff.

I was totally honest with him and told him I needed something for high impact because I had gained a lot of weight and was starting to walk, and it hurt like crazy. He listened and then went on to explain why I was hurting so much, and how to fix it. Wow!!

I am so glad that I bought good shoes. I know it will be completely worth the cost. I spent $250 in total! I've never done that but I have no regrets. These are tools for getting my health and life back.

My movement goal for this week is to walk five times, for at least an hour.

ASICS Kayono 17 Gel

This is what I bought:


ASICS Gel 160 Training Shoes

And I also bought these:


  1. YAY!!! I am so excited for you! Those are pretty, too! :) I got Brooks & they were $100. I had never spent that much on one pair before but like you said - totally worth it! :) Your feet will thank you!

  2. Bought my first pair of expensive running shoes a year ago and they were so worth it. I am about to post this week on my second purchase, because it's so neat the things you learn when you invest in good shoes and shop where they can help you find what you need.

    Good for you!!

  3. @Melissa, you were one of the one that encouraged me to get better shoes, and I really appreciate it. I tried them out last night, and TOTALLY AMAZING! I told my husband it was like walking on cushions. Wow, wow, wow!

    @Leah, I look forward to reading about your purchase. I know what you mean about learning -- I bought from a guy that was so knowledgeable. I had no idea there was so much to shoes.

    Thanks for the comments, guys!
