Currently on Hoka Bondi, which are nice and soft.

Also had Brooks Ghost and ASICS Gel Cumulous.

All were great.

See. This is what I'm worried about. Ordering what I know I need, and boom! Shit's too small.

I think I'll be making that trip to Fleet Feet to have them put me on the treddy and watch my awkward ass run.
I’m on my 5th pair of On’s. I like them a lot. But that doesn’t mean shit to anyone else if they don’t fit their feet well. Go into a store and try on a bunch until you find ones that fit.

Ons tend to run narrow iirc. I’m sure there are some that are less narrow but I don’t think there are any truly wide options beyond standard wide width which again still runs Narrow from what I understand. I own a pair I’m just about every other running shoe on the market. I have finally settled on Hoka (Arahi 5 because I severely overpronate) plus a custom orthotic insole from my PT. I think @saabguy has some but he is fat so your mileage may vary

Do you need any kind of stability shoes or just neutral? If neutral, that opens up 1 million options that don’t exist if you are like me and have fucked up flat hobbit feet

Stop by BP Skinner on Gervais next week before we get drinks.

I should have gotten a half size bigger though cuz I have wide feet, but it’s fine

I have to size up, as well because they are tight across the top at the toe. I have never had this problem with other sneakers, but they just don't have enough room top to bottom at the toe, even sized up.

FUCK THAT. I need shoes that I can run in, that fit, that can deal with my whack foot issue.

Barely. The post-bk entity that owns the remaining Sears and Kmart stores is literally called “Transform SR Holding Management”, it’s a real estate company now.
When I googled it sounded like 15 stores were still operating but yeah I remember Sears property values were sky high

Eddie Lampert (private equity guy who killed Sears) spun the best real estate off in to a REIT called Seritage in 2015. It was an extremely shady move that essentially extracted the most valuable pieces of the enterprise for well under market value and it resulted in a shareholder lawsuit that was eventually settled. Seritage is a redevelopment pipeline, it holds some truly excellent real estate in major markets and is led by experienced development executives.

Transformco on the other hand is a fucking mess. Just a collection of legacy assets with no business plan or strategy.
