I splurged on running shoes. :)

I have had foot issues for a while.  As a hair stylist I stand all day long.  I have issues with numbness and tingling in my toes, and pain in my feet.  I know I have tarsel tunnel in my feet (just like carpel tunnel but in your feet).     I have been trying to work my way up a mini marathon in the early spring, but I just can't get past the foot pain to move past 2 miles.  Well I broke down and bought a pair of Saucony Kinavara 2 running shoes.  They are a minimalist shoe, extemely lightweight, very soft, and have way less "structure" than most running shoes to let you feel more of the road underneath you. 

I am in LOVE with this shoe.  I have been out in it 4 times and have had NO numbness/tingling and I have enjoyed feeling more of the pavement under  my feet.  I feel like I am connected to my feet and my sense of balance is better.  I LOVE THIS SHOE.  I should have spent this money months ago.  I would have had such better training runs this summer.

 Good Shoes are the best thing you can do for your body!  Our feet effect so much!  Coming from someone who has nurapathy and tarsal tunnel I feel your pain!  Enjoy your new tennis shoes :)

 That's cool, but they sound expensive!

Do they come in wide widths? I have fat feet, too.
