I've had a think and come to the embarrassing conclusion that I have never worn a pair of shoes out (I'm still running on and off in the pair of original Lunarglides I did Glasgow to Edinburgh in) and instead I buy new ones for the technical reason that they are "shiny". I have a lot of shoes to use up!

Think its psychological ... Nothing better than running in new, fresh bright trainers. Like new fresh sheets.

It is a bloody good thing Emelda Marcos never took up running.
