IT'S NOT EASY BEING A SOUTHERN BELLE-EVEN AFTER YEARS OF PRACTICE!

THE NECESSARY EQUIPMENT




Now after running ALL of these miles, you might wonder just what shoes I wear. After an exhaustive search and LOTS of trial and error, I wear ONLY Mizuno running shoes. You might say I am a shoe snob. I looked for the lightest shoe I could find first, BUT I also look for a neutral plus. This means that I have no correction in my shoe (I wear orthotics), but want extra padding. For an average sized person, I have a VERY heavy footfall. #1 daughter seems to have this same problem.
I have worn Mizunos the last few years and continue to buy the next generation of the same shoe every time I buy shoes. It would be best to get new shoes every 300-400 miles, but I don't always do a good job of replacing my shoes on time. The first SURE sign I need new shoes-I feel like I am running barefoot-DUH!
I swear by my Mizunos. This company ONLY makes running shoes-SO they KNOW what they are doing. No distraction of the multiple other sports that require shoes-just shoes made to run in!
I LOVE MY MIZUNOS and SWEAR BY THEM.
Your welcome Mizuno Company for this free advertisement. Feel free to send me a complimentary pair as a little "Thank You."

Totally agree. Mizunos are the best! I won't wear anything else. Although they do more than running shoes. They make golf equipment and apparel, baseball equipment and apparel, and volleyball apparel. I think the only company I know who specializes only in running (not even walking) in Saucony.

I'm glad you did this post because I've been wanting some new running shoes, and these are not only great in a practical sense from what you say, but they are also really cute! [Now, do not mistake me for much of a runner...I should be. Daughter of a track coach, and you would think I'd follow heavily in his shoes (pardon the pun), daddy's girl that I am...]

Mom bought some of those a couple weeks ago & loves them! Asics and Nikes are my preference, but maybe not anymore!
