If you remember from this post, I bought new running shoes. I LOVE them. They are the perfect blend of white, black, grey and pink. They are Nike + shoes, which means I can put this little chip in my left shoe, plug a little receptor into my iPod Nano, and a pleasant lady tells me how far I’ve run, how far I have to go, how long I’ve been running, how long I have left to go, and how many calories I’ve burned. It’s simply fabulous. There is only one problem, and I didn’t realize it was a problem until Friday morning. Since my maiden run in them, I noticed my left shoe was slightly roomier then my right. I figured I just had the right shoe laced up tighter. When I returned from my quick run Friday morning, I got to thinking… “My foot slides around in the left shoe more… my right shoe gave my a blister… something fishy is going on here…” So I stood with both my heels pressed against a wall and sure enough, my left shoe looked bigger then my right. “This can’t be… would Footlocker really make a mistake like this?” I slid both shoes off, they would make a mistake like that. Right shoe: USA size 7. Left shoe: USA size 8.5. Yeah… they totally gave me an 8.5 left shoe! Those scoundrels. Now I gotta take them back and hope, hope, hope they have my other 7. The part I find most amusing is that the shoes are a whole 1.5 size difference and it took me two weeks to figure it out!
