My shoes came in today!
Unfortunately they are a half size too small. The problem with this is the way that I ordered them. When you work for a retailer like REI, Run For Your Life, or other retailers you gain access to a website called 3point5.com. It’s brilliant actually. I do training exercises for various brands at home on my own time. But when I’m done and I’ve taken the quiz I can get up to %60 off of msrp in that brand’s shop. The catch is that they ship your merchandise to the store that work at. Selection is limited in each shop and my shoes were only available in an 8 or a 9. I decided to up instead of down but it’s just too big. 3point5 and it’s brands don’t give refunds so I’m going to try to exchange them at the New Balance store or Finish Line or something.
In other news, I will soon begin the Mizuno training on 3point5 because I have found a new love.
You should never pick a shoes based on looks, but damn it! These shoes are beautiful! They were comfy too. I walked around in them for a few hours today.
Wish me luck on my mildly illegal shoe exchange. Hopefully I can run in them tonight.
