I don’t own a pair of shoes as I live in trainers or crocs for short walks or the garden, and shortly before my birthday I invested in a new pair of trainers.
The ones I have been wearing were given to me by my neighbour as they were her husband’s and he had only worn them once. I have worn them every day for 26 months and finally have had to kick them into touch. The insides have now worn and split, though there is still a lot of wear on the soles. However, being diabetic, I have to look after my feet so it would be a little silly to wear shoes that could rub my heels and make them sore.
The replacements are a different colour, but the same make and when I tried them on in the shop, they fitted like a glove. I left them in the box and put them under the bed in readiness.
As an aside, we bought Hubby some new trainers a little while ago but when he wore them round the house for a few minutes, they rubbed his heels so we had to take them back.
I wore them today for the first time and was well pleased that they are as comfortable as the previous pair. I have no idea how far we’ve walked over the past two years or so, but we’ve done a fair few miles. I wrote this post early on in my blog and it makes quite interesting reading when you’re working out value for money. You won’t get much better than 26 months for free, but if I get as much mileage out of my new pair, then it will be £64 well spent.
