#notetoself Pay closer attention to the letter next to the shoe size when you’re ordering shoes online. Because it means something.
I decided to treat myself to new running shoes as a reward for writing in The Five-Minute Journal for two weeks straight.
(Well…I needed the shoes anyway, but this was a good excuse!)
So I ordered these cute Brooks Ravenna 9s from Amazon, thinking I’d get them in time to break in on my Saturday morning run, but alas…they aren’t on my feet.
Only as I was tearing into the box did I see that it was marked “WIDE” and “7.5 D.”
Apparently, the “D” means wide, for people with wider feet, which I didn’t realize when I put them in my cart.
I always get regular width shoes, which are sometimes marked as, but it’s usually just implied, width “B,” so back these go.
I did briefly consider keeping them anyway, because I was SO looking forward into running in them today, but better safe than sorry. These cuties are going back, and I’m going to re-order them in regular width.
