Yes, I am in the market for new running shoes. I have recently read all kinds of articles – ones that say medium-priced running shoes are as good as high-priced (good thing with the economy the way it is), ones that rate different shoes. Now comes the shopping part which is what I hate.
I am huge Avia shoe fan. I have been since my days of Jazzercise in the early 90’s when my shoes were always ankle high as I have weak ankles. My most recent runners are Avias but I need to find more. I also think I need to try on others, just to be sure.
The good thing, other than I just plain like them, about Avias is I can usually find them locally for between $30 and $80 dollars. JC Penney, Kohl’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods all carry them and usually at least one place has them on sale. The current pair has lasted me well. I have put over 500 miles on them since last November and they only recently really started bothering my feet.
Off to find runners…..
