Maybe she’s right.
For almost three decades I have run exclusively in Brooks. Right now my model of choice is the Bedlam but I have a few pairs of Adrenaline hanging around too.
My MS causes my gait so be a little off. The Bedlam is a good fit and gives me the support and the GuideRails I need to keep things right with my legs. I rotate pairs every run which keeps them from wearing down too quickly. I have five pairs of Bedlam (bought on sale) and one of the Bedlam 2. The Bedlam 3 is out now so I bet I can get a good buy on the Bedlam 2.
Running in this many shoes and the rotation I do, works for me.
