I little over a month ago, I got myself some new tennis shoes. I thought they were great to (possibly) help keep me in shape with all the walking I have done. I found them at Walmart. They are these:
They are like the Sketchers “Shape-Ups” that you have seen around…only MUCH cheaper. I love them. I was worried it was going to take a while to get used to them, but it didn’t take long at all. My legs and butt were sore the first couple days. I loved it.
Then this happened to my feet and these shoes were the only ones that I wanted wear.
My feet have continued to be swollen and I went to put on other shoes this morning (mind you, just about ALL of my shoes are kids shoes) and none of them fit. The shoes above did fit, but Chuck insisted that I go and buy other tennis shoes that fit and were comfortable and didn’t where the butt-shaping ones because the last thing my body needed was to work harder right now.
(I’m so glad I have him around to watch out for me and remind me of things that should be obvious!)
So I went to Target this morning when I got to work and bought these:
They are very comfortable and loose fitting, but supportive at the same time. The material moves very easily which is good for my feet right now. The only strange thing was wearing them after the other shoes. I wasn’t used to flat shoes anymore and kept tripping on my feet today. 🙂 Thankfully I didn’t fall on my face or anything!
So there you have it. Stubborn Andi gets a new pair of shoes. Just what I am sure you wanted to hear about today!
