Shoes in rotation (Read 258 times)

    Just curious what you all may have as a 2nd pair of shoes in rotation. If so do you use a lighter pair. I have been using the GT2000 and just purchased a pair of Gel Blur 33 2 as my 2nd pair.

        I have various versions of Mizuno Wave Precision in rotation, separated as treadmill and road shoes.  I recently found a couple pairs on sale as closeout (discontinued) with the help of a fellow RA member...so I'm good through the end of the year.


        I use various flats, in addition, in rotation for workouts.

          Main shoe is now NB 980 and I will occasionally rotate in a 730 for speedwork or short racing... fit and offset is the same, but the 730s are considerably less shoe. Nice setup if you can get it, and at least the 730s are cheap.

            I like to walk/hike/jog/run/sprint on track, roads, trails and mountains


            I like different shoe. I use these in rotation currently.

                I used to be monogamous, now I am a total shoe whore.  So sorry Asics.

                    My 2nd pair of shoes in rotation is...whatever my old pair of shoes is. Lately, that means I rotate between two identical pairs of Adidas energy boosts.


                    I buy new ones as soon as I start to sense that my primary pair is wearing out. Because I have the lumbering stride of a gimpy ogre, this is roughly every 300 miles. I alternate between my two pairs equally for another 100-200 miles, then I relegate my older shoes to strictly "rain duty" - which means they still might see another hundred miles before I toss them, get a new pair of shoes, and the circle of life begins anew.


                    With so many models priced at $150+, this gets super expensive.
