As you know, I am on a weight loss journey. I started walking and trying to get fit. One of the big issues I had was figuring out how to find the right running shoes for wide feet. I have VERY WIDE feet! So much so, that I usually have to buy shoes 1.5 to 2 sizes too big in order to be comfortable. Then I fall because they are too long. It makes it painful to walk or run. The throbbing and the blisters make me dread the walks.
While trying to find how to find the right running shoes for wide feet, I stumbled upon Brooks Shoes. The website was very impressive! They have a shoe advisor. I thought why not give it a try, but really figured it would not work.
It also asked about pronation. Pronation is the inward roll of the foot while walking or running. Or the degree of inward roll in terms of where the foot pushes off at the end of each step.
The new Adrenaline GTS 15 women’s running shoe takes equal parts support, cushion and balance, and wraps them in a stylish, high-performance package. Treat yourself to the adaptive cushioning of the BioMoGo DNA midsole that responds to your run and the full-length segmented crash pad that gives you ultra-smooth heel-to-toe transition. The Progressive Diagonal Rollbar provides reassuring stability while moisture-managing materials in the upper keep you cooler and dryer when you’re on the run.
I was really impressed and thought why not give the Brooks shoes a shot. I have tried EVERY brand there is and have never found one that gave the support and comfort that I need.
So the moment came, and my new Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15 arrived! Look how pretty!
But they are much more than pretty. My first thought was that they were so comfortable. They were very cushy. Would it last?
Let me first mention that I did NOT by a size larger. I bought my actual size plus one half size like it recommended for everyone. Since they were made wide, I really hoped that I would not need to buy a crazy large size. The first day I walked 1/2 mile and was impressed. I could feel the air reaching my toes. They were so roomy. I haven’t felt that before. Soft. Wide. Airy. Supportive. Yes. Yes. Yes.
These shoes are made with a BioMoGo DNA MIDSOLE which is an innovative cushioning system that adapts to runners of all sizes and speeds, providing a custom ride. It also features a full length SEGMENTED CRASH PAD made up of fully-integrated shock absorbers to provide cushion and smooth heel-to-toe transition, maximizing the efficiency of every stride. SWEET, right?
But what about a longer walk or even a jog? I put them to the ultimate test when I wore them on a 2 mile run and then a 5 mile walk. (YES I am walking that much!) And WOW! These are amazing. I am looking forward to hitting the trails now!
When you are trying to find shoes for odd size feet you have to be very careful with the shoes you put on your feet. No more wondering how to find the right shoes for wide feet. Brooks is here for you! Check out what they offer here.
Finally the support and comfort I have been dreaming of!
