I never really cared what type of sneakers I bought. I based my decision on price and what they looked like. I learned first hand why you can’t do that running distance. I wore a pair of sneakers I hadn’t run in since last year. I don’t know how I ever ran 5ks in those shoes. 1 1/2 miles in my toes went numb and the balls of my feet were screaming. When I got home and took my sneaks off I could hardly bend my toes. I still managed 4.5 miles but I won’t be running my 8 miles in those tomorrow.
Looks like sneaker shopping when, if ever the budget allows.
