Kay’s husband thought that she needed new running shoes and found some really good ones on sale. Hers are Asics Gel-Cumulus 13 and she's learning to bounce without a trampoline.
Similarly, Barry decided it was time I replaced my old Nike Air shoes which have done sterling service and walked many miles during the past several years. He found some on sale on the internet – an update to the ones he’s had for a couple of years, so he bought a pair for each of us. ‘We don’t usually go in for the ‘His and Hers’ look but I’m sure we’ll survive.
Our shoes arrived this morning and I’ve been wearing mine all day. I realise now how little support my Nikes have been giving me recently. I feel extraordinarily stable – physically, anyway. I haven’t yet found anything to balance my mental state!
These are my old, well-worn Nikes.
These are my new Salomon Exit Peak shoes; they haven’t been exposed to the elements yet, at least not in the forest.
I must say Kay’s shoes are much prettier than mine!
