I was born with very very very very (did i say very?) flat feet. My feet can be a case study for something I am sure. It is not the most attractive pair you will find on the planet. I overpronate terribly. I have humongous bunions because of that, among other things. So on paper it is highly recommended that I wear stability shoes, those with more arch support and with a bit less flexible soles. I had already resigned myself to the fact that I will forever have less freedom of movement compared to other runners. I had tried a lot of popular running shoe models but nothing seemed to be comfortable.
Until I got my first pair of adizeroes. It was love at first run, and we’ve been together ever since…5k, 10k, 21k, 42km… you name it. Even though it’s generally meant for people with neutral feet I think I just really prefer to do away with all of that thick cushioning. The adizeroes are thin and flat just the way I like it. I’m never going back to chunky shoes.
I know one other runner who likes them as much as I do. His name is Haile Gebrselassie, and if you don’t know who he is you can look him up…
