Real Love Found Me

Several years ago, I discovered the joy of running. Nothing is more relaxing than getting up early, lacing up your running shoes, turning on your iPod and hitting the open road.

Back in the day I gave into fancy marketing by Nike. I was convinced that strapping on those Nike Shox would help me run better and faster. An added bonus was that they were pink. Can't beat that...or so I thought.

I remember the first day I took those shoes out for a run along Milwaukee's beautiful lakefront. I wasn't more than 10 minutes into my run when my arches, ankles and heels were killing me. At first, I thought I should just run through it. But a few minutes later I had to stop after noticing a red spot coming from the heel of my shoe. That's right. In those few short minutes, I had not only managed to get some intense blisters on my feet, but my heels and the bottoms of my feet had started to bleed.

Knowing that this wasn't how it's supposed to be lead me to a local running shop. It was there that I was introduced to the Brooks brand of running shoe. I immediately fell in love. Now I've fallen in love with shoes before, but those were for very superficial reasons. This kind of shoe love was the real thing.

The next day I took them out for their first trip around the block and they performed...well. Gone were the days of sore arches, ankles and heels. It was fantastic!

Anyone interested in getting into running or finding new kicks should take a look at Brooks. Not only are their shoes functional and affordable, but they are attractive as well. I believe you too will soon find the same shoe love I have!

Hmmm, I've never tried these... I don't think my shoe store has even offered these (or at least I can't remember).. but I agree that after my first pair of Nikes for running I've never bought another pair!! I usually stick to Adidases now but I'll have to check out Brooks ... I have loads of problems finding a great pair of running shoes so thanks for the rec!

I'm a longtime runner. My mom will eagerly pull out my varsity jacket from high school to show off cross country and track awards (and then I'll point out that it's my brother's, and I wasn't league champion anything...). But I have to be honest, I'm not a running shoe expert. I've really only run in 3 brands, but of those, I've picked my winner: Brooks.  In high school, it was Nike. I had to in order to be cool.  In college, I had some friends who ran competitively, and they …
