Go to an actual running store to get fitted so they can set you up with the right arch support, etc. I get mine from Running Room.

I agree about the new shoes and going to a specialty store. I recently went to Fleet Feet, my wife had been going there to get special shoes for her foot issues. I had a good experience and they take their time finding the right shoe. We dropped $100 on Nike Pegasis II. I've kept the label so I can buy another pair online when I find a deal on them.

so I went, they recommended Nike Pegasus 3d, brooks something or other and some other one, I tried them all and a few others and ended up with the Pegasus. I'm not telling the wife how much I spent on running shoes, but the bonus is after spending that much it's more incentive to keep going. I wish they had a treadmill you could try them on though, hard to be sure when you just try them on but are not running.

I'll add, for what these cost I'll not be wearing them for anything but running! I've not spent this much un shoes since I was in high school and bought Air Jordans, damn

Yes, they are running shoes and that is it. Expect about a year out of them and then have to buy another pair. Think of them as a tool, or a saw blade or something, they wear out with use.
If your wife pitches a fit let me tell you from experience the medical cost of repairing fucked up feet from bad shoes far surpasses the cost of a decent pair.

sorry I'm late to the party on the discussion on running shoes (crazy busy day yesterday). I also support the local Fleet Feet. Here they let you go for a run right then and there with them (hard to do with the kids, but they've come on a short jaunt with me through the parking lots)....but they also let you return them within a few days if you don't like the shoes after a run at home.

I absolutely recommend that you only use your running shoes for running...except maybe to break them in a little for two or three days. Like T said, they're an investment/tool so you only want to use them for their intended purpose. However, when I get a new pair my 'retired' ones become my gym shoes or my daily kick-around sneakers.

The mileage you get from shoes depend on frequency and the individual. A fat @ss like me may only get 300 or so miles out of them, whereas a beanpole may get 500+. A girl at fleet feet once showed me a good way to tell when replacements are needed (besides development of shin pain): look for creases on the rubber on the inner side of the shoe at the heel (not the inside of the shoe, but the inner part of the foot....like where Dorothy clicked her heels). Creases mean the rubber/support is beginning to breakdown and will not support as much and will lead to the shin pain. She also showed me how some manufacturers know this and design the rubber portion with fake creases to help hide that fact. I thought that was funny/interesting.

You know, with as much as I have researched and learned about this, you would think I'd be *good* at running, lol.

You're in the danger zone, now. Out of the habit. Go back, even for a half hour, but go back.
