I've Just been out for an easy 5 miles, breaking in a new pair of trainers for London in two weeks, and my mind wandered and I ran through parts of a broken bottle. After a few steps i could hear something was stuck on heel, so stopped to look and found a rather large piece of glass, approx 1.5cm, stuck in the heel of my trainers.
I removed it, and although there is no part of the sole missing and it all feels as firm as the other shoe, i was wondering if the shoe will be ok.

Im probably worrying about nothing, but was wondering what others, more knowledgeable, think.

What shoes are they ? I have heard of people popping their Nikes (and clogs) as they have air bubbles as part of their design. But it sounds like yours are ok.

Thanks for reply. Theyre asics 2160 and although they do have a visible air section it appears undamaged, so hopefully they'll be ok.
I think, with two weeks to go, I'm just getting a bit nervous and anxious for things not to go wrong.

I didn't think that shoes had air pockets nowadays.  They sometimes have clear sections, but I thought they were solid.  Most of the cushioning comes from the foam rubber so I wouldn't think that that will be damaged by the puncture.
