Retired shoes/cost per mile

There are many many running shoe reviews on the internet. A stat that I wish they would include were the number of miles and/or the cost per mile of ‘retired’ shoes. Shoes that have achieved their max mileage. Here are some of my retired shoes. I’ll update this table as I retire my shows.

Absolutely amazed by how incredible my #salming Greyhounds have been to me. Just completed over 950 miles on this single pair of shoes! I’ve never had a pair of shoes that even came close to half that mileage. All of my shoes wear on the bottom outside heel to the point where my gait and foot strike is altered, even though there is wear in that spot on this it’s not nearly the chunk that goes missing in other pairs. Also, the material on the outside toebox in other shoes tends to wear so much that it creates a big hole that exposes my little toe, even though the Greyhounds wore thin in that spot the hole was never created. And this is all with more than DOUBLE the mileage!!!! I’m amazed by the build quality of these shoes and how long they last. They’re so affordable too compared to other brands of this caliber. An incredible value! I highly recommend the Greyhounds (or really any other Salming show).

Day 200 of my #runstreak and with the help of @ginancapone it was a big one! Over the course of those 200 days I’ve racked up 1,400 #running miles, includes a bunch of 50k’s and marathons and even a hundred miler. On day 100 I celebrated by running a sub-5 hour 50k which gave me a huge PR so today I wanted to celebrate day 200 by running another PR! Gina pushed me to get sub 6min mile for the first time ever. Admittedly I’ve never actually attempted to run only a mile so I didn’t really know what to expect. We both feel I could be faster next time now that I know what it’s like and hopefully the track wouldn’t be as wet. Now to eat all of the eggs and bacon. . . @salmingrunningnorthamerica #salmingambassador #nononsense #RunSwedish #instarunners #marathontraining #trailrunning #runner #runningman #ultrarunning #mile #sub6 #pr
