So, I finally got new shoes after nearly 12 years.
I don’t mean that I’ve been using the same pair for more than a decade. I’ve just been using the same brand and style for 12 years, Newton Distance S. Due to the ever-shortening life of the shoe, I decided to switch to a Saucony model to try out.
The worst thing about switching shoes is getting used to the new feel. Switching from Newtons especially, there are lugs at the forefront, I have to back down my mileage to get used to the new feel. I plan to use the next week or two getting used to the new shoes before I get back to doing any speed work. We’ll see how it goes, as I try to build up to marathon distance by November.
Anyone else have experience with switching to a drastically different style of shoe?
