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.
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:
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?
