Back in 2015, I purchased the Reebok Yourflex Trainette 5.0 in pink and grey with memory tech. For the past two years I’ve worn these faithfully for every hike and day trip, which is probably much too long for my only pair of shoes. When I first tried them on I was shocked. Reebok made

Zenith and I <3

both cute and comfortable shoes that I felt great wearing. I’m talking cozy x 10. The memory foam insoles make every step feel like you’re walking on clouds. It’s been the most pleasant experience with any running shoe I’ve ever owned.

At the time I loved the pink and the style of the shoe, however, fashion has since changed in the past two years. I hope I can find something as comfortable soon as I prepare to get new shoes for my day hikes and adventures with a little more fashion conscious and low key look. I saw some of reeboks newer designs in gray and black and was instantly smitten. I realized many of my clothes were dark toned and this flashy pink wasn’t great for what I needed. They’ve held onto their color quite well given two years of harsh wear, they have been everything I needed.

My only issue stems from my weirdly wide feet, Fred Flinstone wide. After a particularly long hike, my pinkie toes would go numb and I’d start limping. Unfortunately, this is an issue I face with almost every pair of shoes I own. Anyone know of any shoes designed for such Fred Flinstone tootsies?

What kind of shoes would you recommend? Have you had these shoes? What was your experience?
