There are so many factors that go into a good run – but my biggest and most important one is shoes.? Shoes can make or break a run for me, and goodness knows I have tried so many different types over the years!?

Show Me Your Shoes
I’m not gonna lie, accessories are one of my favorite things to obsess over when it comes to running.
It was an embarrassingly long time before I caved and went to get fitted for a good pair of running shoes – and eventually, we settled on the Brooks Ghost.
Those shoes are still my favorite shoes, ever.? I love the colors and I love that they carried me through my very first marathon.
I have another pair right now that are holding up well, and will get another pair here in a few months when those start to give me aches and pains.
I do love to collect shoes as well – just ask my husband.
They aren’t even necessarily shoes that I actually run in.
But I am a sucker for those marketing tactics…
runDisney New Balance Shoes
These are some of my FAVORITE shoes in the world…? I don’t run in them, but I wore them all the time.? Especially when I am at the parks.
But can I tell you a secret?
They’re super uncomfortable and I kind of hate them.
I know, I sound like a crazy person.
I love the look, and I love the runDisney-ness of them… but no.? They are kind of awful.
So, I’ve stopped wearing them… but I still have them in my closet.? They’ll probably stay there for another few years before I eventually cave and donate them.
Regular Disney New Balance Shoes
All of them.
And I have ALL my crossables crossed that they’re comfortable.
How can they not be though? Just look at them!!!
Of course, I want the most expensive pair they have.? Because that’s just life.
But LOOK AT THOSE!!!!? You can take a better look at the New Balance Minnie Mouse running shoes here. .
Brooks 2018 Rock ‘n’ Roll Launch 5
SERIOUSLY. These are on the top of my list right now.
Luckily, they’re selling out like crazy, so I am not constantly filling up my cart and emptying it.
Instead, I’ll just drool over my friends’ Instagram Posts.
And secretly hope that I find a pair when we are in New Orleans at the Expo.
Show Me Your Shoes
So tell me – are you a shoe hoarder?
