I don't buy running shoes as often as I should. I generally just keep an eye on them, and when they start to feel uncomfortable, usually in the heel...well, then I start the search. And I usually go by looks first, fit and feel second. <—Totally not right, at least by pro running standards. But, whatever. I always end up with a pair that works great and feels wonderful. Perhaps I'd feel differently if I actually went to one of those fancy running shoe stores and got appropriately fitted for a pair. Or maybe I can use the following.
Also, I think I swallowed a cherry pit today. <—Totally, definitely not right.
Question: How do you buy your running shoes? Do you get fitted? And how often do you replace your running shoes?
