|Brooks Launch, $90|
So confession: I'm training for a race right now. A big race. I've been hesitate to talk much about it because quite frankly I've been terrified since receiving confirmation that I made the lottery, but I am training. The goal is to finish. Ner-vous.
That being said, I bought some new shoes a month or so ago and love them. I went to Luke's Locker and tested a bunch of shoes one Sunday, while wearing a dress. The shoes specialist assured me he's seen stranger. My requirements were something lightweight since my Nike Motos were starting to feel very heavy. I decided on the Brooks despite the bright blue color (You know it was hard for me to buy these knowing there were no other color choices).
I have loved the Launches. The have made long runs so much easier and my knees and ankles have not bothered me nearly as much during my long runs.
