I was hoping someone could give me some advice for a good pair of Running shoes to purchase. I am planning to start doing some jogging now that winter is here and it is going to be somewhat chilly to ride my bike much.
Please bear in mind, I don't plan on running any marathons or running any 4 minute miles. I'm well over 200 pounds, my primary reason for the running is to improve my fitness and to maintain my cardiovascular gains I have made from biking this summer. I'm not even going to try to fool myself by saying that I am going to be running, I will be JOGGING.
I am looking at two primary concerns for a pair of shoes.
1. Shoes which would give my feet adequate protection. I suppose this primarily means shoes which have adequate support in the sole area ie. a thick sole. Remember I already told you I was a pretty heavy old boy, therefore adequate padding is important. Weight is certainly not a consideration, as in reduction in the weight of the shoe.
2. Secondly, I am not rich and after I just spent over $1000.00 for a new bike a couple months ago, I'm afraid my wife might just kill me if she found out I spent over $100.00 for a pair of running shoes. So cost is certainly a concern. I definitely don't want to spend over $100.00, and I would like to spend down around $50.00, if anything in this price range is available which would suit my needs.
Brands models and approximate prices would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
