Things may have changed with age and so I adjust. Recovery and listening to my body has become so important. There was a day where finding the coolest looking shoes were my top priority, but now I use what works and if they happen to look great, bonus! At the moment my OOFOS recovery sandals are my biggest asset. After recently suffering from severe plantar fasciitis, they really have helped propel my recovery. There is no doubt they will be my favourite thing to wear after those long tough runs in peak Marathon Training. They say it reduces 37% of impact on the joints. Honestly all I know is it’s these types of things that will help me perform and stay healthy as I run! I now look for things that work, period! It is now and should have always been, this simple!
