I've come up with some perfectly reasonable (to me) justifications to warrant a few new pairs of dress shoes in the past couple months. When it comes to running shoes, though, I'm much more reluctant to part with my money.
Maybe it's because running shoes don't make my short legs look a mile long? Maybe it's because they don't give my calves that nice shape? Maybe it's because they all seem to kind of look alike? Whatever the reason, I always have a tough time spending money on running shoes.
According to most sources, running shoes should be replaced every 350-550 miles. I have no idea what that translate to in the gym since I'm definitely NOT a runner, so I replace my running shoes every 6-9 months or so, depending on wear. My current shoes were starting to hurt my feet, so I figured they must be within the 350-550 mile range.
I was surprised and elated when I discovered some Saucony shoes on sale at Marshalls and Ross last weekend! Last year, I stepped out of the box and bought black running shoes - a first for me! This year I found two great pairs of shoes: white and black to match every workout outfit!
