Paying for running shoes

I read with interest this NY Times story about how much to pay for running shoes. “Fit first and price last” is the mantra that most experts seem to agree on. I have to agree, but my bias has been toward not paying attention to how high the price is, as opposed to not paying attention to how low the price might be.

I’ve bought my shoes at running stores exclusively now for the past ten years, but after reading this I remember the first pair of Nike’s I was wearing when (in college, I think) I started running for exercise and for for and for stress relief. I bought them at Marshall’s for $40. Maybe I’ll give it another try!
