Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

Well, no, worst case scenario is that the new shoes cause *another* problem. But I'm guessing you'ld notice something amiss before that.
And hey, I'm always in favor of getting new shoes when there's *any* problem. But if you've got a model that's working for you, whynot just get a new pair of the same model?
And this brings me back to my question - how does she "know" it's not the shoes? Has she been running for years on the same model without a problem? In that case, probably not much reason to try another pair.
Or are her shoes whispering to her late at night in ancient Aramaic, from underneath the bed? Because if that's how she knows, perhaps trading in the demonic possessed shoes would be an option.
If your back issue's aren't from overpronating I would stay with what your using. Running in shoes that are overstablizing can cause other problems. Have you ever been to a running store and had your stride evaluated?
Now that was a bath...
Hey everyone, I want some opinions on shoes.
