One of my favorite things growing up was when I got to go back to school shopping and get a new pair of shoes for the year. Those days, I opted for a cool pair of Vans. I thought I was just SO COOL.
Now I get excited about new running shoes! I picked up a pair of Saucony Guide 7‘s at Running, Etc this weekend. They offered to show me other shoes, but I like my old standby shoe for now. Why fix what ain’t broke?
I’ve been wearing the Guide 6’s since 2012 but hadn’t updated to the 7’s yet. I realized that I have been wearing my last pair way past their welcome.
Other than some slight changes to their color schemes, I haven’t noticed much of a difference. I’m not a shoe expert – I know there are probably some structural changes, but none that I can notice.
Any other Saucony Guide lovers out there? Do you have a “standby” favorite running shoe? What kind of shoes did you like to wear as a teenager?
