Abs of Flabs
=I really liked running in them but at about 250 miles all the aches and pains started. New shoes, pain gone.
I've found more variation between models than between makes. In my experience, really simple, neutral shoes (like the Nike Pegasus, Asics Landreth, New Balance 755) last forever. The more stability and structure built into the shoe, the quicker they will break down.
That is indeed the smartest thing I've heard in the discussion. I don't see any reason the basic shoes can't last a helluva lot longer than most people suggest; but I'd guess that the more complex the shoes, the quicker something can break down.
