Got some trail running shoes and did a trail 5K today. Trails are still complete ice rinks around here so I couldn't get a very good time, but it was a decent workout.
Not sure how I feel about my new shoes yet. I have comically fucked up feet, so it's almost impossible to find trail running shoes in my size locally (13 EE), and I've played the whole "buy a bunch of shoes online, return the ones you don't like" game before, but it's pretty obnoxious since like 90% of shoes don't work for me even if they are my size on paper.
I got the Altra Lone Peaks and length/width-wise they are about as good as it gets, but I don't know how much I like the zero-drop construction, especially as someone who typically wears support shoes (my Brooks Adrenalines have a 12mm drop). These Altras feel VASTLY different and I'm worried that I'll do something stupid as a zero-drop newbie, like roll an ankle or fuck up my Achilles tendon, or something. Also I'm not sure if zero-drop shoes are good for fat fucks like myself.
I wish they came in something other than zero-drop because I love how roomy they feel in the toe box, something I almost never get with any pair of shoes.
