Hello bloggy friends. I need some help. No, not that kind of help. I already take these little blue pills for that and I haven’t seen those nasty pink elephants in weeks. That being said, I need some help selecting my next shoe.

Here’s the deal. I hate going to the specialty running stores for shoes. I always leave with a billion dollar pair and feel a tad pressured when I’m in one. I know I should just put on my big girl panties and tell them no…but…I used to work in retail (Worst. Job. Ever.) and I always feel kind of bad for the folks who work there so I end up buying shoes that are great but that cost an arm and a leg.

I’ve found that I love the Asics Gel Kayano 15’s, but unfortunately, they have gone extinct in my size. I wear a 10 if you must know. What? Don’t look at me like that. I’m a tall girl! Anyway, I’ve worn the Kayano 15’s for the last three shoe purchases and now they are gone. (I tried the 16’s at one point but they gave me blisters like nobody’s bidness.) If I purchase shoes online can I send them back? And how many times can I wear them before I send them back?

So dear bloggy friends what do you all recommend? Here’s my stats:

1. Medium-high arch
2. Need some stability
3. Like cushioning
4. Don’t really want to spend more than $100

Help me out will ya?
