All About Running Shoes

The rainy season is fast approaching in the PNW and I recently added a few new weather-friendly pieces to my workout wardrobe. One of the biggest differences about living in California and living in a place that has all 4 seasons, you need a lot more clothes, lol. You need seasonal clothing for each category-and it’s not just outerwear and diapers, but also weather-resistant training equipment. In the spring and summer I ran in my adidas UltraBoost 20 sneakers, but since they are white and I will probably run in the mud or rain, I needed a black pair. I share my thoughts on my 2 favorite running shoes below.

I’m a Nike fan through and through. I have been wearing the brand since I was a child and its elegant designs still get me. It kept me from finding the right Nike running shoes for as long as possible. Earlier this year, I started wearing the adidas UltraBoost 20 sneakers for running and training, and I love them (read more below). I recently found the React Infinity Run Flyknit running shoe at Nordstrom and the reviews intrigued me (I’ve heard good things about it too).

In the end, I ordered the black/white/dark gray couple and I really like it! I still go with a 5.5 in Nike shoes, which I ordered, but I am exchanged for the 6. Either the Nike shoes are shrinking or my feet have become bigger lol. The Nike Flyknit running shoes are much better equipped than the adidas UltraBoost 20’s, almost like Second Skin. I like the low ankle profile on these and how light they are. They immediately felt comfortable, which is always a great test for me. These come in a handful of Colours and they are currently on Sale.

I’ve heard so many good things about adidas UltraBoost 20 running shoes and been so excited about them, I actually have 2 Colorways. I hadn’t worn Adidas running shoes in years, so I was very skeptical about the size. I know many of their lifestyle sneakers work great, but I’m happy to report these running TTS (I have size 5 and they fit perfectly). They are spacious and comfortable! My only complaint is how wide they are when you look at your feet. But sometimes function trumps Fashion, doesn’t it?

I would recommend both running shoes. You need a full size in Nike Flyknit running shoes and take your normal size in the adidas UltraBoost 20s.

I actually ordered both pairs from Nordstrom. You have a great selection of running shoes now and so many are on sale!
