Need new new shoes

A couple of weeks ago I got new shoes and today I’m returning them because they’re causing me pain. 

At first I thought it was just a matter of breaking them in but after several uses it seems my plantar fasciitis reared its ugly again face due to the new shoes.

The last couple days I wore my older shoes and things are getting better. I’m actually annoyed that because of this small set back I’m behind on my weekly goals. I only ran once early in the week, in the new shoes, the next day I had a hard time even walking. 

Hopefully I get fitted correctly this time  in something more appropriate for me.

Then I can officially retire this good old friends.

      I’m walking back from the store with the new shoes as you posted the question!
      I chose the Brooks Dyad 8. It’s a more stiff shoe that should help with the PF, at least that’s what I was told. We’ll see how it feels after a couple of runs.

    Brooks are heavy… be careful… their soles are hard which force your forefoot to absorb the shock and could pull on PF. When you get home freeze a waterbottle and start using that frozen bottle, rollingn under length of PF after each run for 15 to 20 min every night. Good luck!
