... still cheap, even with 150 trainers every 3 months. I keep coming back to a mate of mine who had run for years without issues in 130 shoes. When he changed to something cheaper, he ended up with physio bills that more than offset the difference! If the shoe works for you, it is worth paying for.


Who cares about the landfill eh?! And, manufacturers tweak their latest models year on year - it can be difficult sustaining the same sort of shoe. It sounds like your mate needs more resilience Wink

Where's ttowel when you need him? Last I heard he was wearing 30 quid end of line shoes, pink or purple women's model for the best bargains, in his pursuit of the sub 2:30 marathon...

Personally I'll keep on with minimal shoes which can I can wear into the ground without going uneven, my coach and inspiration being a certain M55 world record holder https://olderyetfaster.com/100
