¡Nuevos Zapatos Para la Vaquera!

So far, so good. I ran for the first time with my new shoes yesterday (on the treadmill) and it was great! You know how when you wear a new pair of shoes the first time, you get some burning in the new pressure points? Well, that was all that was not ideal, but I know that will be better. Other than that, they were awesome! I just really like the way they suck to my feet!

So, I'm following up my last post and letting you know I bought some new running shoes this weekend while we were in Lubbock! YAY!

And, in a funny twist, I actually tried on four or five pairs of shoes because of your recommendations...Mizuno, Brooks, Asics, Adidas.

And then, McH brought me a pair of Under Armour. What you say? But they make clothes, not shoes! Oh, but my friends, as of May, they do make shoes and they are AWESOME...well, so far, which really just includes me trying them on, walking around the store and carrying them home with me. They were the last pair I tried on and I knew as soon as I stood up they were different.

They feel like they are suctioned to my feet, which was very different than other pairs. And, because they are Under Armour, they are much more "breezy" with specialized wicking so they can breathe.

Google 'em. Check 'em out! I'm ready to try them out tomorrow at the gym and soon on the streets of Ctown!


  1. Congrats on your purchase of a new pair of "running" shoes :)

    I'm sure you're going to love them.

  2. I have heard someone else say how much they liked these shoes. I will have to try them on when I need a new pair. I just got some new Asics for Christmas but they are already getting worn out.

  3. I am going to check these out for my next pair.I'll try and not get the same color. LOL See ya at the gym.

  4. This is good because I'm actually in need of some new shoes.

    Good Luck with the running

  5. I'm not a fan of running, but I AM for sure a fan of shoes! Those look like cute ones! :)

  6. I was just wondering how they felt last night. I hope you had a good workout!

  7. Got your sweet comment on my blog today!! Thanks for the encouragement. I wanted to tell you about Jason's Garmin. IT IS AWESOME! It is a watch, that is big, fat, and bulky. BUT, so worth the $$. It will calculate mileage, pace, track your route, calorites burned...YOU NAME IT!! It is fairly expensive($300), but I think it is on my list of "big" purchases!!

    Lets hit the streets sometime!!:)

  8. I just discovered your blog... you're really good at this stuff.
    I've always liked the Under Armor products, though I've never tried their running shoes...ASICS, is my brand of choice. I'm sure you'll really enjoy your Under Armor's though.
    Have a great day...

  9. I like Brooks, but I just bought a new pair and my legs and feet are killing me. I really hope this is just the "break in" period!


Comment away, y'all!
