I got new running shoes for Christmas! Both pairs are Reeboks, which is basically the only brand that I wear. This morning, I wore the super cool black pair, above. Tomorrow, I'm wearing the super light white pair, below. I may still get some miles out of my old shoes. I've been keeping track, and they have 300 miles on them. Most places say shoes should be good for 400-500 miles, but I'm pretty hard on my shoes, because all of my miles are on concrete, and because I'm still not a lightweight. Anyway, the black pair is really comfortable. I often get some chafing from new shoes, until I get them broken in, but I didn't notice any this morning.
