My Perfect Training Shoe

As many of you know, I was born with clubbed feet and have to take extra care of my feet. I have never let my limited mobility hinder me in athletics and I'm not going to start now. Because of the kind of training I'll be doing it is important for me to find a supportive, but cushioned shoe. I have a high arch and my feet are slightly wide (not to mention a size 5...yick). I'll be running but I'll also be doing some toning exercises and light calisthenics so I don't want a run-specific shoe. And, silly as it sounds, I care what they look like. Here are 3 pair that I have been considering. If anyone has any feedback, please share.
New Balance WX812BP-$89.95

Reebok RunTone Action W-$99.99

New Balance WR7500-$74.95

Yes, my favorite color is pink.

    I have the Reebok toning shoe and I love love love it! I did try the running ones and love those too. Actually I was thinking the other day about buy those. I did try the New Balance tennies and didn’t care for them. They didn’t feel right to me. Plus I have high arches as well and the Reeboks seem to give the support that I need. Good Luck! xoxo

  2. Thank you so much for your review! I really love the idea of the Reebok toning shoes-and they're so cute-but I didn't know anyone that tried them, so I thought. Do you think you would be okay running in the EasyTones or do you think the RunTones are necessary?
