New Shoes!!

Ry and I hung out at the pool most of the day (drowning our sorrows in the sun). Before church I told him I wanted to go to TJ Maxx for a little shopping spree (we had sold a few items on Craigslist and I had money burning a hole in my pocket). I got a couple shirts (1 sweater to wear over things when it gets chillier, 1 longer sleeve shirt, and 2 tshirts) and headed to the shoe section. Now it is hard for me to buy shoes. Not because I don't like them, but because Ryan works at a shoe/ sandal company, so I get LOTS of sandals and I normally ask for TOMS for holidays - which really is the majority of my foot wear. Well, we walked over and I saw two pairs of shoes that I HAD to get. Both of them are running shoes. They are actually more of the minimalist style (which I am interested and excited to try out).

The first pair were cool Nikes - Nike LIVESTRONG Free Versa Fit+ Womens Training Shoes. (The bright yellow color drew me in)

    Womens Training ShoesThe Nike Free Versa Fit offers a more barefoot feel with extreme flexibility in highly active areas of the shoe. Lightweight, breathable mesh upper, Nike Free technology in the sole and full length Cushlon midsole make up the key features of this one-of-a-kind training shoe. 

The other pair were awesome Merrell Vibram ones - MERRELL BAREFOOT PACE GLOVE.

  • Experience minimalistic running with the durable and lightweight Merrell® Barefoot Pace Glove.
  • Breathable mesh, microfiber upper with rubber toe bumper and contrasting overlays for a modern, sporty appeal.
  • Elastic collar provides ankle room while the Omni-fit™ lacing system provides a secure fit.
  • Microfiber footbed treated with Aegis® antimicrobial solution resists odor to keep your feet fresh.
  • 4mm compression molded EVA midsole cushions.
  • 1mm forefoot shock absorption plate maintains forefoot flexibility and protects the foot by distributing pressure.
  • Ball-to-heel drop keeps you connected to the terrain.
  • TC-1 rubber, Vibram® Trail Glove outsole provides durable grip on a variety of surfaces.
  • Wash as needed in cold water, gentle cycle and air dry.

I am pretty stoked on both pairs :) Now to wait the 30 days to let my IT band heal and to use them in full force!!
