I bought a pair today...Posted by Tim ( me again) on 2/19/99 at 00:00 (004944)
Thanks for the input. I went to the store and tried on about 6 pairs. Turns out Rick was right, my right foot is a full size larger than my left and I wear a 'wide'. I haven't been fitted for an athletic shoe in years ( due to foot problems that kept me from doing anything remotely athletic) and always grabbed a size 10 off the shelf and walked out. Big mistake.
So far they feel wonderful ( New Balance 712 Cross-Trainers) and have tons of cushion in the heel area. My doc says I'm still about
6-8 weeks away from running ( I have Haglunds Deformity surgery) but at least I can walk 'ok'.
Thanks again for the input. Good luck.
