It’s a sad, sad day in the Dailey household. Today I’m retiring two pairs of shoes; my Nike Structure’s from every day life and my Free’s from running.
My Free’s aren’t at the point where my legs are getting super sore or tired after running or causing injuries, but I’m starting to wear out the bottom of the shoe at the ball of my foot, and that’s a pretty good indicator that they’re on their way out.
Haha I’m actually really bad about wearing shoes/socks/slippers out like that. For some reason I always end up with holes right at the balls of my feet. That’s exactly why my Structure’s are done.
So now my Free’s are going to be my everyday shoes and I guess I’m going to try to donate the Structure’s. I’m not sure if anyone will take them because they’re in pretty bad shape, but it won’t hurt to try.
I’m kinda sad that my Free’s running days have come to an end. At this point in my life they’re my favorite shoes to run in and this was my second pair. On the bright side, they’re soooo much more comfortable than the Structure’s, so now I have a pair of comfy everyday shoes.
Down side, now I only have my Lunar Glides to run in and they’re not as fun. Luckily they aren’t too bad though, and I’ll be good to run in them exclusively for a while.I just really prefer the Free’s. Oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do.
Where do your shoes tend to wear down first?
When you retire a pair of running shoes to you get rid of them right away, or do you continue wearing them for non running activities?
What’s your favorite type of shoe?
