Runner's Almanac - 2.75 miles in new shoes

I have been running in Asics Gel Kayanos for about almost 2 years now. I started in the 14 model and then purchased the 15 model a couple of months before the LA Marathon. I liked the 15 model immediately. But it's been almost 300 miles and the shoes have reached their expiration date. So I purchased the latest model - 16 - and went out for a run. Sadly, it isn't the same feeling as when I got the 15's. Notably, it is not as cushioned as the previous model. I called Frontrunners to see if there were any 15s left in my size and there weren't. the helpful salesperson told me not to worry about it and see how they feel the next time. To be continued...

Happy shoe shopping!
