Good running shoes are worth every penny you spend on them. Try to cut back on spending in other area's of your life and put the money you would have spent into a "shoe jar". It may take a while but eventually you will have enough for quality shoes.

Check with your doctor first before embarking on a running program. It sounds like you have some health issues and they may prefer a different form of exercise for you. While I love running, there are people out there that love swimming and biking just as much. It becomes real expensive real fast if you injure yourself and lose work...

There are benefits to having good shoes. But, if you run in your shoes & don't have problems, then it really isn't a problem.

Don't give up! I'm poor, too! I have a pair of Nike shoes that I bought for $20 because they were "last year's model". I would suggest going to your local sporting goods store and telling them you need a running shoe that is on clearance, and the salesman will hook it up!

Actually, right now I'm walking/running in a hiking shoe because it's less worn out and provides better foot support. I'll be shopping for a running shoe in maybe about 2 weeks.

Do I really REALLY need to buy expensive shoes for running/jogging? I reckon I'm probably flat-footed and know that you have to buy shoes for 50+ which is more than I'd pay for gym/swimming membership. I thought jogging would be the cheaper option but I cannot afford a pair of shoes that expensive!!?

Also apparently I have flexible joints or something like that and tend to just dislocate every joint in my body or pull tendons or ligaments (?lol) atm I still have a dodgy knee from dislocation a few years ago and a bad ankle that I think I keep spraining. Maybe I should give up now actually!
