I get well over a thousand ( usually 1500+ ) out of cheap old Nike Pegasus ( often in the sale or even the teenage boys version to save the vat! - but I do have smallish feet 5's )

A man in the running told me once that I must only wear the ladies version of shoes 'cos they are 'geder specific' ( they were also £30 more! ) I ignored him - the shoes felt the same, fitted the same & lasted about 1500 miles, they cost me £27!

I know some shoes don't last long though & I've noticed with Lunafly's chunks of rubber fall off the sole sooner than peg's.

The first pair of 'proper' running shoes I bought I had to get the men's version as they didn't have the women's in my size - the sales assistant (and it was in a running shop) told me there was no difference at all, apart from the colour - so I reckon you're right to ignore that pitch!

Got something to say?
