Well I wish i could have found a good pair of walking/running shoes for 0 bucks :) .. but typically I would opt for the on sale items. to my disappointment I was constantly suffering from shin splints and cramping in my calves. I would try arch supports, gel inserts, and nothing made it better. Then I FINALLY listened to the rumors about expensive sneakers.. and let me tell you I could have never justified 125 dollars for a pair of running sneakers that would get all muddy and beat up and worn out.. but the truth of the matter is that there was such a drastic difference for me.
I never would have believed it unless i tried it for myself.
I can walk for hours without shin splints. I can run and run, and I even tried a couple of times without really warming up, just to push the limits and no problems.
My ALL Gel sneakers have totally enhanced my fitness experience.
But hey! if you dont suffer I would go for less expensive. I'm just giving those who suffer an option of hope, there is hope for a better experience.
ENJOY! Keep fit! :)
