I am a very sporty person and my favourite activity is walking and running. I do run and walk a lot. But the question is – if I do it right. I am sure you will agree that we all need good sneakers to keep our feet feeling good mile after mile. What is more, choosing of wrong shoes can lead to pain and injury of the shins, knees, hips and lower back, making us injury-prone when we really shouldn't be.
For the above mentioned reason, for me, it was extremely important to find the right sneakers to be and stay healthy. I walked miles and miles with different running and walking shoes of different brands to rate them for fit, stability, and yes, – style.
And ta-da – here is my top pick which is absolutely fun-to-wear: New Balance 515 Retro.
I liked them because of its lightweight, very nice quality material, firm, non-yielding support of the sole allowing my feet to move and bend naturally while protecting it on rough terrain. It also works well on city streets (they look great with skinny jeans, running shorts, yoga tights and leggings). A wide range of colours from deep, calm tone to bright, vibrant ones helped me to find what I was really looking for.
With New Balance 515 Retro, I did not need to use insoles, crutches or any kind of shoe inserts, it also has a removable insole, and I didn't even need to order a size up. Why is it so important? As for me, I do not like to wear one size up, because feet seem vast. On the other hand, you cannot walk or run comfortably when a heel is exactly on edge, thus, the removable sole is a right solution to this issue.
Our feet absorb more force during running than any other part of the body. In a pair of feet, there are 250,000 sweat glands, and it is normal when the feet sweat while walking or running, but as we all know, nobody wants to smell bad… You don’t have to treat your feet or give them special care, because New Balance 515 Retro has got a unique feature: its mesh upper increases airflow, keeping sweaty feet cool and eliminates rubbing that can lead to blisters.
I love these sneakers and enjoy running, walking and even logging mega miles. I am sure you will love them too.
