An early morning walk or run on the beach is an awesome way to start the day! Blanco, my chow-chow, loves the beach and our morning runs.
For 25+ years I have been seriously attached to my Vintage or Classic Reebok Free-style sneakers. Lately I started having blister issues and then they discontinued the design your own shoe option. Time to go shopping for new shoes! OH MY, the choices… running, walking, cross-fit, train, dance, zig, skate (shoes for skateboarding?). Neutral vs. Stability vs. Minimal vs. Barefoot……why are there so many kinds of shoes? Do you remember when there was only one type of shoe: Sneakers? I discovered the footwear industry introduces endless technologically advanced shoes with new designs and features every year.
I love walking on the beach, but sometimes I run, hit the treadmill at the gym or take a yoga class. I am a baby boomer, so my joints require me to keep moving! Decisions: do “walking” the dog shoes work for the treadmill? What about Zumba? Some experts say concentrate on comfort, support and fit. So I shouldn’t pick the neon pink with green/aqua accents (they are so cool!). Scientific American says I can… Don’t Sweat over Shoes.
I spent hours trying on shoes and decided to try the purple NIKE free. Time to head to the beach to try out my new shoes!
