A few weeks ago, I received a fun little package containing, what has become, my new favorite footwear.
Inside, were a pair of brand new Therafit shoes, waiting for me to break them in.
I wrote on my initial thoughts of these shoes when I first received them; however, since then, I’ve had the opportunity to really get some good use out of them, which now leads me to tell you how I really feel.
Just a quick background on the concept behind these kicks:
Therafit shoes were developed by Dr. Lisa Masterson, co-host from the television hit series, Doctors, after she recognized that women are on their feet constantly and for most of that time, they are running around in shoes not conducive to this lifestyle. She wanted to create a shoe that was not only affordable and comfortable, but one that women would actually want to wear. The main concept behind Therafit is simple, the 12 hour shoe for the 12 hour day.
It’s been about a month, and I can honestly say that I’ve had the chance to test them out in most conditions. In the winter, I do most of my running on the treadmill so that was the first place I put them to use. I also should mention that when I run, I prefer a shoe with a lot of stability, particularly in the heel. I suffer from calf tightness and knee problems, and I’ve found that the root of this issue comes from improper shoes. I’ve tried to go for a minimalist approach in running shoes, but it only led me to injury.
The Therafit shoes were ideal for running, due to the significant focus of shock absorption in the heel itself. I ran with comfort and ease and felt no pain what-so-ever following my run.
Aside from working out, I’ve also been wearing them during everyday activities and errands. When I see clients at the gym, I’m constantly on my feet and these shoes provided maximum comfort for hours.
So really, what sets these sneakers apart than any other durable, shock absorbent, comfortable shoe?
Therafit is unlike any other shoe on the market right now due to its Personalized Comfort System (PCS) that is built right into the shoe itself.
It’s better for me to show you this first hand rather than try and explain it…..
(Please excuse the less than desirable appearance. This was the first time in 3 days that I felt well enough to shower, so it’s not my proudest moment)
