If you’ve just started running and aren’t ready to shell out $200 for a pair of high-tech shoes, going budget is not a bad idea.
“Budget” in this case refers to past-season shoes that are sold at a fraction of the original price. They may not boast the latest technology, but they are made for running and in mint condition. Besides the price, you should also consider the fit, comfort and your running style.
When in doubt, always consult the store assistants. (If they happen to be none the wiser, read our running shoe guide here.)
