I take mine out for a couple of runs in the regular local routes. And a good thing too. Once I got a pair for a race and in the first local run, I had three blister before the first three miles was done. Those shoes went back.

I have a "new shoe ritual" that I follow each time. First, I wear the new shoes around the house for a couple of days, then on an outing or two. Then I wear them for a short run, and progress from that point. I have found that even if I stick to the same model, the manufacturer tends to 'upgrade' them periodically, which involves some changes.

Agree with Coach Nancy....If it's the right shoe and a good shoe, you're good to go.
Happy Running

Hi,

For some runners there is a transition period to their new shoes if they are changing to a different model. It is recommended that you run in them for a few shorter runs before doing a long run. That said, you should not have to 'break' them in. If they don't feel comfortable on your feet before you have even taken your first step, they are not the shoe for you.

Hi all!

I'm currently training for a half-marathon to be held on 5/5/13. I bought new running sneakers yesterday and am curious about the break in period. What is the best way to break them in? How long should I wait to wear them running and for what distance?

Thanks!
