What does everyone wear for running shoes? I wear asics gel nimbus and love them but am tired of paying 140 every three or four months for a new pair. I am running around 25 miles now and am in need of a new pair please help!

Hi Mandy! Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. We have been having issues for months connecting on here.  It's hit and miss. 

Since you know the Asics work well for you, you can try runningwarehouse.com online and other discount places online for better prices.  Frequently you can find last years model of the same shoe you love for half the cost.  I wear Brooke Adrenaline and always manage to find an older model for around $70.  Just google it.  You can even find stuff on Ebay.  They sell brand new shoes there and I've had great success with it.  I found a pair for $50 on Ebay.  Good Luck!

I had a fave pair of shoes, but they were pricey. So I tried something cheaper. Big mistake! Ended up injured and having to buy more new shoes. If it's not broke don't fix it.  e

I am not set with one brand.  I always go to my running store and try on shoes.  Then I go and try to find them cheaper somewhere else.  But I agree with Jade, I tried cheaper brand shoes and hated them.  I ended up giving them away and buying higher priced ones.
