New running schoes: Asics Dynamic Duomax

running shoes
It was that time of the year again. And I hate that time of the year.

The time that I have to go out and buy myself a new pair of running shoes.

'Pretty' doesn't enter into the equation

Don't get me wrong. I lóve shopping for shoes. Just not for rúnning shoes. Because it's not about the pretty colours. It's all about getting the right and sensible shoe. And 'pretty' and 'right/sensible' usually don't meet when it comes to running shoes.

But I had to face it. The holes in the heels of my Saucony running shoes were so big, they were causing big blisters every time I wore them. Even when I put on really thick socks.

Let's try another brand: Asics

So off to the running shoes store I went. I always buy Saucony's but this time I asked the shoe guy for another brand. Because of the holes-in-the-heels problem I have always have with my Saucony running shoes.

He sold me a pair of Asics running shoes. Asics Dynamic Duomax to be precise. They feel good.

Let's hope they don't get holes in the heels!

Here are some pictures of my new running shoes

I run about 6 times a week. My running shoes last me about a year.

I tend to go through 2 or 3 pairs of running shoes a year. I love Asics Kayanos, Altra torins and Brooks shoes. I also have some Mizunos I really like right now. I skip around a lot. Enjoy your new shoes!

I go about 350 miles before getting a new pair. I love my asics!!

I hope mine are going to be great too Sue. I do like the colour!

That's i nteresting Christy! Do you run lots of miles? And doesn't running get expensive if you have to buy 3 pairs of shoes per year?

I buy a pair of running shoes about every 9 months. I currently own (now, as I just bought another pair) 4 shoes, but they all get rotated. My Sacouny's are my racing shoe, but will get replaced around june.

I've never bought a pair of running shoes - but I go through walking shoes pretty regularly, and it always feels so hit or miss. By the time you know they're not quite working for you, it's too late! Thanks so much for linking up to Awesome Life Friday - I hope you'll come back again this week!
