A wonderful treat for my feet. {PR Soles Review}

Recently one of my most favorite websites in the world asked me if I would like to do a product review for them. You may have heard of them before.

Gone+for+a+Run

Um YES I would because you are Gone For a RUN and I basically want to own two of everything on your website. I was given the choice of several different items and soon received a pair of these in the mail:

1375

In that exact color of neon green and black. Neon green rocks.

These are PR Soles and I’m in love. A little bit ‘Croc-ish’ in appearance, but otherwise so amazing that I have no problem wearing them out of the house with any outfit because unsolicited opinions of my footwear mean nothing if my legs feel refreshed. Check out the sole of that shoe! You know those egg crate things you can buy to put over your mattress and then you never want to get out of bed? I don’t think there was a year in college where I didn’t have one.

That is what PR Soles remind me of except not nearly as squishy. And much like never wanting to get out of bed in college I never want to take them off, which is saying a lot considering that I hate wearing shoes.

These durable, water resistant sandals implement Acupoint technology – those would be the little nubbins on the sole – to massage the nerve endings in your feet and increase circulation. Here’s just a few ways that PR Soles can help recovery per the Gone For a Run website. After spending a significant amount of time wearing them over the past couple weeks, I’m a believer:

  • Improves circulation by stimulating blood flow, which will refresh the feet and legs.
  • Breaks up accumulated wastes such as lactic and uric acid in the feet.
  • Alleviates foot, leg and lower back pain
  • Reduces swelling and tension
  • Stimulates nerve endings benefiting the entire body
  • Feet and legs recover faster

They feel incredible on my feet after a hard run. I packed them in my bag for the Cool Kids Running Festival on Sunday and was thrilled to be able to slip them and wear them around after I finished my race. I NEEDED them after that tough course.

A couple people asked me about them and I was happy to inform them of all the benefits. I’m even wearing them at the office right now. I’ve casually mentioned on here that I’ve been experiencing some issues with my right knee, shin, and foot – anyone have a new right leg you could loan me? – so these could not have possibly arrived to my house at a better time. As of right now these are the only shoes I own that don’t cause me some kind of discomfort besides my running shoes. It was definitely a challenge to decide which would look more stylish with a black maxi dress.

You win, PR Soles. I have an appointment with my awesome chiropractor, Dr. Dave, a little later on this morning so I should know more about what is going on with my bum leg after that.

Anyway, PR Soles retail on Gone For a RUN for $29.99 in 4 different color combinations and I’m thinking about picking up a second pair just so I can wear them with more outfits. Maybe I need to have a PR Sole fashion show on here.

Do you own any recovery footwear? Do you find that it helps you? Would you like to be a part of my PR Soles fashion show?

Gone For a RUN provided me with a pair of PR Soles to review. I received no other compensation. All opinions expressed in this blog post are my own.

    Lookit you rockin’ your PR Soles with a black maxi dress!! That’s My Salt! I am intrigued by these puppies. I have seen them before and I’m thinking that after my 50K I’ll need a little something in the recovery department. So. If you locate that extra leg….gimme a shout. xoxo

      They are marvelous. 🙂 I was wearing flip flops a lot, but recently with the leg pain, I’ve found that they weren’t giving me enough support. So on to these!

  2. txa1265 says:

    Good for you – shoes that are functional trump fashion … and those are much better looking than Crocks, imo 🙂

    I don’t own any recovery wear … I tend to use my Merrell Vapor Gloves (basically no cushion or sole) as my bang-around non-running shoes 🙂

      • txa1265 says:

        Considering the number of stupid and ill-advised things I can get away with, the fact that they are ‘too little shoe’ for me (compared to New Balance Minimus, let alone the cushy Kinvara and Virratas) … should tell you something. They make $2 flip-flops look like advanced foot support! 🙂 haha

    Those shoes sound amazing! Perfect for recovering after a long run, workout or race during the summer months. I usually just wear a pair of sports slides but these sandals look much cushier.

  4. DarlinRae says:

    I don’t have any recovery wear, but my local Fleet Feet recommended Olukai flip flops–they’re really cushion-y and nice, but PRICEY! I’ve been vacillating between those and some Sanuk Yoga Slings, which are also squishy and nice, but less expensive and nicer looking.

    • runsaltrun says:

      I’m going to have to look up both of those things. I figure with marathon training in the hopefully not too distant future, I’m going to need as much recovery stuff as I can get my hands on.

      Actually I just looked up the Sanuk slings and those are CUTE! I would totally wear those all the time!

  5. themilereport says:

    So sporty! I’ve never tried recovery footwear. In the summer, I usually wear THE cheapest pair of old flip flops that are falling apart because other flip flops seem to give me blisters. I bet the PR Soles don’t give blisters!

    • runsaltrun says:

      I bet they wouldn’t either. 🙂 I usually wear flip flops but since I’ve been having the leg pain, they were doing more harm than good. I’m happy to have found something that works a little better!

    • runsaltrun says:

      They are wonderful! Haha and thank you. They are definitely not the height of fashion, but they are making me feel so much better today and that’s all that matters.

    I don’t have recovery footwear, but I’m sure I should get some. Not sure if flip flops are doing anything for my feet after a long run. The pink ones are cute with the pop of bright blue. Although, in my old age, I have gravitated towards more structured flip flops – with arch support. I’m not gonna lie, Crocs can make a good flip flop.

    • runsaltrun says:

      I had no idea that Crocs made flip flops until just now so then I went to look them up and they aren’t hideously ugly at all as I expected them to be. 🙂

      BTW NEW BLOG YAY!!!!

    • runsaltrun says:

      Sure why not!? Hahaha.
      These are my new fave though and GFAR is the best ever. 🙂 I may or may not have been shopping around on there earlier today for some more stuff.

  7. Running Betty says:

    Sweeet! I’ve been looking for some new, comfy post-race kicks! I’ll have to check them out and join your PR soles fashion shoe! Neon green is one of my favorite colors…the more neon the better…and the price is totally doable. 🙂

  8. piratebobcat says:

    Not for nuthin, but those look comfy. I would totally do a fashion show!
    I remember when soccer ‘sandals’ were the rage with little pointy nubs digging into our feet. Looking back, they were probably theraputic, but they kinda hurt at the time!

I want to hear from YOU!
