Cheap neutral shoes (for 55mi per week) (Read 619 times)

    Any tip for a cheap road shoe for a neutral runner doing 55 miles / week ?

     

    My K-Swiss Ultra Natural II are rapidly reaching the 500mi barrier and my budget is rather low this season. I have seen some models under 50 EUR like Nike Dart IX, the Mizuno Crusader 5 and the Saucony Grid Tuned. I need them basically for the medium and long runs on the ropad and for the marathon races, for speed intervals and the races below half marathon I use racing flats.

     

    Thanks for the advice !!

      I always buy my shoes in the last years model - I watch when the new model comes out - I keep a daily watch on internet and usually can get my Asic 1100s (Maybe 1140s now) list price of $69 USD for 39-49 USD.  I then buy enough for the next year.

        How many pairs would that be for a mileage maniac such as yourself?
