These glass slippers transform me into a fleet-of-foot runner

You know you’re really a runner when the shoes you’re most excited about buying are new running shoes.

Today was New Running Shoes Day at Minnesota Transplant’s house. It comes but twice a year, and it’s celebrated with a big outlay of cash — more than twice what I think I’ve ever paid for a pair of dress shoes.

These shoes — Asics Gel Kayano 17 — represent pain-free jogs through the neighborhood, and they’re worth every penny. The “17” means they’re the 17th iteration of these cushiony feats of engineering.

I picked them up at Dick Pond in Carpentersville. A running friend needed to be evaluated, so we went together. The expert at Dick Pond diagnosed the issues and prescribed a solution. I highly recommend a in-person visit if you’re running around in not-so-good quality shoes.

I can hardly wait to don my new footwear tomorrow morning!

  1. When I was little, I always thought I could run faster in my new sneakers. Now, when the girls get new shoes, I encourage them to show us how fast they can run in them. It’s like magic how much faster you can run in new sneakers.
