Quality running shoes are crucial to your running future, plain and simple. I tried to express that very message in my guest post for Onlineshoes.com .
I have mostly run in Nike shoes. This is simply because I used them back in the day and haven't had a reason to switch. However, when I entered the "running world", I learned Brooks was one of the premier brands among serious runners. So, when Onlineshoes.com allowed me to test a pair of Brooks, I was thrilled to try another brand.
Brooks is known for their slogan, RUN HAPPY, which I love. But, you can't do that when you are in poor quality shoes. My tall friend is a Brooks fanatic, wearing their clothing AND shoes regularly. Their products are attractive and functional, a winning combo.
I am currently running in the Brooks Ravenna2 , a mild support shoe. I love the mesh lining, necessary for humid summer runs as well as the adjustable lacing. This shoe appears more durable and would be ideal for high mileage that occurs during marathon training.

The toe box is roomy enough, that I am not worried about losing more toenails, yet snug enough that my foot is not sliding around (I have a narrow foot). And, I appreciate the light weight feel of the shoe.
The Brooks company speaks for itself and inspires loyalty among its consumers for its always innovative technology and ever improving products.

And, because a post wouldn't be complete without some puppy love, here is a picture of my mom with Cooper and my brother's three goldens?
Where do you typically purchase your running shoes?
