>Gears and Wears>"Breaking In" New Shoes? Truth, Myth ... or It Depends?
Needs more cowbell!
I am new to running (~4 months and currently at 15 miles per week, my longest runs are 4 miles). I just bought a new pair of NB 1222 last night that I haven't had a chance to run in yet.
• Do some dus...and some CX...and some tandem gravel...and some podiums...
• 130#s (or less)
I've never had to break in shoes. To me, shoes never feel better than the first run in them. Everyone says not to do it, but I've even worn a new pair right out of the box in races--marathons even--if it was a make and model I had owned before and knew treated me well.
The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
In fact, you just inspired me not to break in my next pair, just to see what happens. If I get hurt, it's your fault. Hope you feel good about that.
Mikey, ever run a marathon in shoes right out of the box?
The Logic of Long Distance
I ran your marathon with shoes just out of the box. Figured new flats were better than old trainers...
