It's my feet, you see. Both of them are getting bigger. When I first started running about 10 years ago I was able to easily squeeze my tootsies into a size 7, sometimes a 7.5. My first pair of proper running shoes that I got when I was a sophomore in high school were a 7.5. How do I know this? I still own the shoes, now approaching their 17th birthday.
In a failed attempt to pile all of my running shoes into one spot and determine which ones needed to go to the great shoe rack in the sky I realized that most of my running shoe are now 8s or 8.5s.
I never really pay attention to what size shoes I buy. If they fit, I buy them. But I was surprised to see that my feet are apparently, at the age of 33, growing like mad. I asked my local running store guy about this and he said that yeah, in fact, after people run for a while their feet can flatten and spread out.
I am just shy of five foot two and am apparently on my way to having catamarans as feet. Please help.
