Looking for a Deal on Running Shoes?

As a runner, you know your shoes are important. Having quality, well-fitting shoes is key to injury prevention. If you are a typical high-mileage runner, you replace your shoes every 3-4 months, give or take. Problem is, those shoes can be expensive, and at 3-4 pairs a year, the cost can quickly add up. Specialty running stores are great if you are unsure of the type of shoe you should be wearing, as their staff can steer you in the right direction. But if you’re like me, you already have a favorite brand and possibly even a favorite model, that you consistently purchase. If you’re looking for a discount on your favorite shoes, head to places like The Sports Authority or Dick’s Sporting Goods(I consistently find shoes for less than $50 there).

Asics Gel Cumulus a Top Pick for Neutral Runners

If you are a runner with few mechanical issues who is looking for an all-around great training shoe, the Asics Gel Cumulus may be for you. The Cumulus is designed for the neutral runner looking for a straightforward, no-frills shoe that will withstand many months of training without falling apart. One runner had this to say about the Cumulus:

“The Cumulus was a my first pair of ASICS, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I needed a shoe that would get me through a few months of training without breaking down or causing me some sort of injury. And, when it was all said and done the Cumulus met all these needs and lasted longer than expected.”
