Running Shoes

6:57 AM

I have this thing where I always absolutely destroy my running shoes. As in, they start ripping and separating from the sole. I'm pretty sure it's because I have wide feet, but either way, I can go through a pair of running shoes likethisfast. And did you know that running shoes are expensive?!

About a year and a half ago, I decided (after ripping through my Nike Frees in about 3 months and some Sauconys in 1) to just give the Champion shoes at Target a shot because hey, if I'm going to burn though running shoes in a couple of months, they may as well only cost me $30, right?

I am now here to tell you that THESE THINGS ARE LITTLE FOOT HEROES. I've run about 2,500 miles in them, and they are only now being laid to rest. Now, I know any serious runner will tell you to change out shoes every x amount of miles or x number of months, but I run recreationally and on a treadmill, and I don't have arch or gait issues. So these cheap-o shoes are PERFECT for me.

Champion brand has my heart forever. This weekend I went and got 2 new pairs (buy 1 get 1 half off!) for a total of $54 (1 pair was 36). WORTH IT! I figure with 2 pairs, I can get crazy and wear them in public sometimes without being afraid to put extra wear and tear on them too quickly. And with bright, flashy kicks like this... I think they'll be seeing at least a bit more than my tread belt :).
Happy Monday! XO
