I’ve had a few friends ask me why I wear my more worn down shoes to run when I have some nicer looking ones. Colors and styles may look nice but function > fashion ANY day ESPECIALLY when working out! My black ones are pretty beat up but I can run longer and more comfortably in them than I ever could with my new ones. Picking out running shoes is all about practicality, not pretty colors! The only reason I bought those shoes on the left is because they were 20 bucks at Marshalls but sometimes it’s better to save money a little longer and invest in a really good pair of shoes than end up buying a pair you’ll barely use.
