I'm not sure the actual time limit on returns at my local running store, but I did bring a pair back after about 2 weeks of trying to get used to them (they were Saucony Progrid), switched to Brooks Adrenaline's which I have stayed with.

Roadrunner Sports (both the stores and online) has the best return policy I have seen. Take the shoes out for several runs to really try them out; I had to go up a half size when I started running longer distances, so that is something to consider too.

Check out A friend of mine bought trail shoes, didn't like them. Zappos took them back, even though she had been on a muddy trail run. Our local running store says you can only wear them on a treadmill not outside if you want to return them. Check out the policy whereever you choose to buy your shoes. It can add up if it turns out you need a different pair.

What kind of guarantee does your running store provide? My local one provide between a 15-30 day guarantee. Maybe you could ask?

I am asking for advice. I rotate between 2 pair of Asics Nimbus 12 which I like how they feel when I first put them on but as I run farther distances, the blisters and rubbing on the side of the foot are bothering me. I have tried on other shoes, walked in the stores in them, went on Runners World shoe find a solution to my problem. I liked how the Saucony Progrid Kinvara 2 Running Shoes felt at the store but I am leery because they are not suggested for my running profile. I have heard lots of things about people who bought what was suggested by the running store and it turned out that they did not like the shoes at all. I don't like to waste money. It would be great if I could go on a 10 mile run and see how my feet feel afterwards before buying a shoe. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
