New sneakers (again... finally...)

Since the new Nike Pegasus' did not workout, I headed back to Jack Rabbit to try again.  This time it was a success!

The guy at Jack Rabbit (whose name escapes me now) who helped me was awesome.  Listened to my concerns, took everything into consideration, knew a lot about the differences between the shoes and explained the benefits of each shoe brand and type.  I tried on a bunch of shoes before finding a pair I liked.  It took a while and there were a couple of close seconds, but find one I did. 

And here they are:

Tada!  They are the Asics Gel-Nimbus 15.  Aren't they pretty?


I don't know all the technical terms about them, but they are incredibly comfortable - cushioning without being overly soft and still supportive.  They felt kinda like my old Pegasus' did, which was exciting.  I've already done a couple of runs in them and I feel like I am floating.  It's a nice feeling!

Downside?  They are not cheap.  Total price?  $145 (full price).  Fortunately, I get a discount at my favorite running store and of course, I can keep a look out for them online (when it's time to replace them).  But since they are so comfortable and (clearly) my new shoe, I will pay it.  It's annoying (especially since my Pegasus' only cost $100), but considering I didn't like any other shoe as much, it is what it is.   

What shoes do you run in?  
Totally love my new sneaks!


  1. I love the color! I have show envy! :)

    1. Oops- shoe. Stupid auto correct! Lol!

    2. Thanks Jaime! I do admit, the color was a nice perk!
