New shoes…

…well, new version of the same style/brand I’ve worn for years!

Treated myself to a new pair of trainers last week. As the miles are building up a couple of twinges I’ve had are similar to those I’ve had before which usually indicate it’s time for a new pair of shoes.

I’m a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to running shoes. Like many runners I found a style that I like and am too scared to venture away from them with the fear a different style or brand might cause an injury. As a runner in my youth I always ran in Asics only venturing away during my non-running years for a bit of a flirt with Reebok and Addidas but after a long term knee injury attributed to – in part – poorly chosen trainers I returned to the old faithful’s about 7 years ago and haven’t strayed since!

The Asics GT 2nnn range are great for over pronators like me. The stability factor, I feel has helped me kick my knee injury completely and I’ve never looked back. As a testament to the durability of them I still have many of the pairs floating around. My 2090’s are still used as my ‘indoor stretching’ footwear, my 2130’s are my ‘travelling to triathlons’ pair, my blue 2150’s are my ‘multi-terrain, don’t care if I get them dirty’ pair and my pink 2150’s are my ‘used to the max, on their last legs’ pair.

I love the 2130’s so much I actually bought three pairs, although sadly two pairs had to be put out of their misery!

The latest addition, a rather bright pair of 2170’s were comfortable from the moment I tried them on, so confident I was in them that I wore the for the first time for a 12 mile run at the weekend – foolhardy, but my trust in the style is so strong I knew they’d be fine – and they were.

My growing brood! Can you spot the new pair?
