For those of you who invested time and money last year on finding those perfect shoes… You got the professional fitting, the shoes worked out great… bingo! You’re done, right? You’re all set to go for this year.
Well not so fast… the good news is your shoe shopping will probably go quicker this year… the not-so-bad news is yes, you need new shoes!
The cushion in running shoes starts to break down over time. Just like your oil in your car needs to be changed every 3,000 miles or 3 months, your running shoes need to be changed every 500 miles OR once a year.
So check out the FAQ page for a list of friendly local stores who offer us a discount, and If you just loved your shoe from last year, chances are you will do well again by buying the current model. However, don’t assume this, because a shoe with the same brand and model name can change from year to year. If you didn’t love your shoe from last year, a description to a shoe-fitting expert can quickly help them to find your better solution. Happy shoe shopping!
