I got my new shoes yesterday so I took them for a spin today. They were comfortable, and my hips don't seem to hurt today so I think my shoes were due for replacement. Unfortunately, even though they were the same size as my last New Balance pair, by the end of the run my toes were hitting the end of my shoes...so back they go and I have the next size up on order. Hopefully nothing will change much but the length. I am kind of surprised that I needed new shoes already; this pair only had about 280 miles on them, but I guess that is pretty close to 300. I'm not high mileage so I was hoping to get farther into the 300-400 mile range, but I suppose construction quality between brands could vary, etc. I don't know that is is worth paying more for something else to get another 100 miles...But I did try on some really nice Sauconys once. Maybe for the next pair. Turned in another 3 miles today in 38 minutes.
