So I finally caved.
My feet and knees had enough of my last pair of trusted Asics Gel-Nimbus 12’s. So I caved and finally purchased a new pair. Of the same shoe. This will make my 3rd pair of Nimbus 12’s in a little over a year. I may or may not be having a love affair with this shoe. It’s like my security blanket for my feet. My thoughts are: when something works, why fix it?
However, I do have a gift certificate to Second Sole that is burning a hole in my pocket. I am planning on purchasing a pair of racing flats so that I can rotate shoes and use the flats specifically for races and the Nimbus for training runs (hopefully extending their life). My question is, which of these shoes should I choose? If money were no object and I was planning on Forrest Gumping it for several years, I would have them all. Yes, I really do have a running shoe infatuation. Some ladies love heels, flats, etc. I just really love me some athletic footwear.
1) Asics Gel-Blur 33
2) Brooks Pure Flow
3) New Balance 890
