So Confused

Monday, August 20, 2012

I've been looking into getting new exercise shoes, and I wanted some that would work for walking and strength training. The problem is that I'm extremely limited on money. I was looking at some shoes from the c9 Champion brand at target, and I came upon shoes categorized as interval shoes. I have no idea what interval shoes are, but would they work for what I'm looking at? And if shoes are categorized as activewear and running can they still be used for what I want for them? emoticon

    Interval shoes means they can work for multiple disciplines. Some people use intervals for cycling and something else, walking/running, etc. The most important thing will be to make sure that they have the proper support. You don't want to take a walking/cycling shoe and then use it for running too. It isn't designed in the inner structure for that.

I haven't used those shoes, but I have gone through numerous pairs of athletic shoes from Target. My latest pair blew out (quite literally - the sides came apart) last week. When I pulled out the insole - the whole support frame in the heel had cracked. And I don't run! I used these for walking and taebo.

If you can find another way to invest in something with a little more structure, it might be worth it in the long run. I know where you are at though. I lost my job and can't justify even paying $20 for a pair - let alone $80.

Hope this helps.
