Time for a new pair of shoes

Post by Dave on Fri Mar 04, 2016 3:30 pm

Chuck Taylors are way too narrow in the forefoot. Vibram toe shoes are cumbersome to put on and take off (at least my last pair was, but I know it was a size too small). Anyone have a recommendation of shoes that have a bendy but no squishy sole, and a nice wide forefoot? Thanks!

Nick wright said arnies are pretty good and inexpensive. But crossfit shoes are quite good. I have nike metcons which I like but mainly use them for work. I also have nanos, pumps and lifters. Nanos are my fave.

My feet were stifled in them, and if I said otherwise, I was in denial.  My feet grew some while I was wearing those and hitting squat PRs.  But they were so narrow I got to the point of pain in my feet while wearing them, especially the left.

Come to think of it the pain wasn't until after I landed a pretty ambitious jump while wearing them, and the whole rest of the walk home my left foot felt like it had become mush or jelly in my shoe.  Mostly in my head I think, but sufficiently injured that I had pain lasting something close to a year.  The pain will try to come back as I age, won't it?

Avo made a great shoe suggestion to me, many of them look great in style, and the mission statement of the company inspires so much confidence that my decision was made then and there to use them.  But they had no shipping option for Canada.  www.baer-shoes.com/

When I'm ready to spend the money, though, I will look into outlets that may have Baer shoes.
