I have to say I had such high hopes for these shoes also. They felt awesome walking in them. I really loved how they felt. I had plenty of room in the toe box, they felt very comfortable and like walking on a cloud. But, when I went for my run I felt my feet were in pain again. I had such cramps in my calves and the bottom of my feet! It could very well have been some residual pain from the horrible experience I had with the Hoka’s the week before. So, I can’t honestly say it was from the shoes, but I do know they weren’t for me regardless.
After two miles the calf pain went away, but my feet were in unbearable pain. These shoes for whatever reason just weren’t working either.
I could totally tell these shoes probably are great shoes, but for someone else. I don’t know why they weren’t for me, but they went back to the running store and I am back running on my trusty Asic Keyano Gel running shoes. They are the shoe for me. They cost about $40.00 more, but its worth every penny for me. I ran in my brand new Asics the following week, and I was able to run 90% of my 4 mile run with no pain until the about the last mile. I think its a circulation problem I am probably having at this point, but the Asics help get me through my runs a lot better than any other shoe. So, why mess with a successful formula? I am now looking into compression socks to possibly help with my feet falling asleep, and more stretching…. I will keep you posted when I find something to add to the Asics combination that helps with my feet falling asleep!
