Puma Power for Flat-footed Athletes

I seriously considered posting a "Non-Scale Victory" badge last week when I finally, yea verily, finally found a pair of running shoes that not only fit my flat feet but also provide adequate support for my left ankle, which is fraught with two steel plates and 10 pins.

Honestly, I almost hollered "Hallelujah!" in the store when I tried on this Puma Women's Cell Flexion shoe. It was so comfortable, in fact, I would have bought TWO pair, had they had a second pair in my size.

The good news is that although the shoes are listed for $100 on the Puma Store web site, I bought the gold and white version at
T. J. Maxx for $39. Tonight, I found the silver and blue style on sale for $39 on this Finish Line site.

This sort of serendipitous good fortune, my friends, does my heart good.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Who have ever guessed that we'd one day get SO darn excited about a pair of sneakers? I'm with you, however: they save the day! I'm on the verge of getting new shoes, too. Thanks for the tip.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Oh - I like those gold and white ones! And I have some serious arch-issues so they just may be PERFECT for me. Thanks for sharing such a great find.
