I am finishing up my two part review of my new Therafit by Dr. Lisa shoes and I got to test them out at the Santa Hustle 5k in Chicago, see my race recap here after wearing them around the house and to the gym twice. Both the event and the shoes were a great experience, and I felt totally festive rocking these bright red kicks to get in the holiday spirit.
These gym shoes are really fun to play with- as you can see from the above picture, you can remove the rods in the heel to adjust your comfort/shock absorption levels. I absolutely loved to wear these around the house and the gym twice before the race and they performed well for the 5k as well as for the walking I’ve done with the dogs and in Chicago.
I’m very particular about the shoes I wear for long distance running and haven’t found a pair that don’t cause my neutral feet to overpronate when I run. As I suspected, the shoes did cause me a bit of soreness after the 5k, but for my elliptical runs, gym visits and all-day home wear they are super comfortable and were perfect shock absorbing shoes!
If you need a pair of athletic or shoes for standing all day at work, that’s what I’d recommend them for. My feet felt great after wearing them all day- but they’re just not my favorite to do over 3 miles in. If you’re looking for a good gym shoe, post race shoe or workday shoe with long hours spent on your feet, these are your go-to! I find they’re versatile- if you go for a morning walk or hit the gym, then need to wear these for a day on your feet at work or travel, Therafit is a great investment.
We’re also hostessing a GIVEAWAY for a pair of Therafit shoes to one of my fabulous readers!
