Running shoes I'm stuck with
This is the Mizuno wave rider II running shoe that I purchased recently. I went to Wasatch Running thinking they would find me a good shoe to help me with the issues I was having with my feet. Chris and I went there a long time ago to find a shoe for him. They watched him run down a path they have in their store to see how he runs and then fit a shoe to accommodate his running style. Then they let him try on a handful of pairs that were all ridiculously priced. Anyways, we left and he bought a decent pair he likes for less than half the price.
I went back just before my marathon to see if this company could help me with my feet issues. I left having paid way to much for this pair. I can't say they help me with my feet issues. I still had feet pain when I ran and even when I walk in them now. Not to mention that there is not much padding on the heal and I felt like my heals were being ripped apart before I put padding underneath the soles.
BTW, Chris is a better shopper than I am. He's patient, does his research, shops around and compares.
