My quest to find the perfect running shoe began with foot pain. My primary sport is figure skating, and the Pumas were great for off-ice training and workouts. But six years after purchasing them, the soles have worn smooth and I couldn’t run two days in a row due to aching arches.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting reviews of running shoes. Before jumping in, I thought I would share a little of my background. I would describe myself as an amateur running enthusiast. I run about three times a week, rarely covering more than three miles. I participated in track in school, so do know something about proper running form. However, I am not an expert.
