I had to take my shoes back last weekend, where the store owner replaced the insoles.
The problem? My shoes are Asics and the insoles are Brooks.
I ran 3 miles today. THREE MILES. I have a blister on my left foot (so bad that there’s actually a hole from where the skin tore off) and my right heel is bothering me now. I have heel issues. Asics have never been a problem for my heels, that stick out too far, but the new insoles (NOT Asics) are elevated slightly. More cushioning in the heel means my heel now sits in a different location in the shoe.
I’m tempted to go BACK to the store and give the store owner a piece of my mind. What the hell was he thinking giving me a different brand insoles? I’m an experienced runner. Experienced runners know what works for them.
For tomorrow, I’m going to cut the old insoles to the size I need and see if they continue to slip. If I can’t get through 3 miles without a blister, how can I run an additional 23 miles?
