Shoes

Post by CindyC » Aug 23 2002 8:39 pm

Awhile back there was a topic where someone was inquiring about shoes. Well I am in the market for a new pair and I remember many suggestions on a New Balance trail runner. Does anyone recall the shoe I am talking about? If not, any suggestions? Thanks.

Yep, I have a high volume forefoot, average sized heel and a high arch.. oh and I supinate.. Yea, fitting shoes/boots is a nightmare for me too.

Sorry azbackpackr, didn't mean to frustrate. Not all shoes work for everybody. But if you're like me, I've tried more than enough crappy shoes out, that look good but after 50 miles or less of hiking they're already starting to fall apart. Hopefully the list on the new thread viewtopic.php?f=30&t=3950 will give people a starting point to work from of ones that are put together well.
