Okay, I am your typical lover of Adidas shoes. I have always chose them over Nike’s unless they were given to me.
But my opinion has totally changed. I was able to go up to our local New Balance store in Fort Union (Utah) and try out a pair of sneakers. First off, they have shoes for every need. You have walking shoes, running shoes. cycling shoes (yes, those exist), and more. Since I love Zumba, I need to have shoes that did not grip to much. I still needed to slide my feet around. I didn’t get caught up in the thick tread like running shoes. They were great. And the comfort, oh the comfort. Soft and heavenly.
I was able to run/walk (mostly walk) a 5K with New Balance and of course I wore those delightful shoes. Can I tell you what, I did not get shin splints once while I was running. Normally, they happen fast. My feet were not tired, or throbbing. Again, I was converted.
And guess what? There clothes are amazing. The capris, the socks, the shirt, and the bra. Yes, they have bra’s, even for large busty women like me. I got a whole outfit that made me fell confident, and excited to workout. The clothes are breathable, flexible. My only downfall is that as I am plus sized, the women’s tops were not quite the fit I would like, so I opted for a men’s shirt and it was so roomy.
I have even purchased shoes for my kids and they love the comfort it gives them.
Here is me and Katie participating in our first 5K, we received our Participation medal!!!
