I bought some Asics DS Racer shoes 5 months ago and I absolutely love them, the best pair of shoes I've ever had. When I bought them the guy at the London Asics store advised against running more than 6 miles as there's not enough cushioning etc.
Well just started to increase the distance a bit and following the Asic chap's advice (and some running club members) I thought I'd get some new shoes more meaty than the DS Racer. This new Asics chap steered me towards the 2160, said it was a pronator shoe that best matched the DS Racer.
Anyway, tried 'em in the shop, felt ok so bought them, tried a run and omg.....BLISTERS BLISTERS BLISTERS....the size of a golfball on each arch, after just 3 miles. Thing is I never get blisters. Thought it was just a new shoe thing so tried running a few days later with Compeed's on. Not only do the shoes still feel crap but something really bad has happened to my legs, they feel like planks of wood, never ever felt so uncomfortable trying to run, not tired but like I've got someone else's legs on I've still got knee pain and legs feel awful.
Feel really cheesed off I've wasted £92 on a pair of shoes I can never use. There's no way I'm gonna put these bloody things back on my feet. Do you think there's anyway the Asics store will give me a refund or swap them for another pair, they look pretty clean still but done about 9 miles in em?
