It may be the same model but updated? They often make small changes.
I always buy the same trainers (Asics Kayano) and do feel it takes me some time to get used to them everytime.
You have to bear in mind that a brand new shoe is different to an old one, even if it it is exactly the same!!!
It is new! It will be stiffer in lots of different ways. Probably the same as your current shoe felt when it was first out of the box but you had nothing to compare that one to.
Some people's bodies can cope easily with these small differences but some can't.
So it might just need a bit of breaking in. Wear it walking as much as you can and go back to your old shoe for now and gradually introduce the new one in for your shortest runs first.
Best of luck.
I wasn't talking to you Bear!
And your case is completely different.
"Have had exactly same problem with my shoes"
- No, Susiebe's new shoe was exactly the same as her old one - style and model number.
A new model, even though it has the same style name can be very different.
But that's not what this thread was supposed to be about.
