I had been wearing the same old ratty gym shoes for the past several years. Dont know why I didnt upgrade them earlier but I finally have a new pair that will be my dedicated gym shoes. Since I spend about 7 hours per week at the gym (in a good week) it seems like a sound investment. $60 and free shipping on Amazon which is good for Nike....I think. I hate to buy Nike but I will admit they are super lightweight and comfty. Glad I splurged. Have you bought anything fun lately? What kind of tennis shoes do you use?

I buy champions from payless for that very same reason. They last a lifetime. I had the pair i wore today over three years. I wash them and they are bright white. I will buy more when they are looking old. They look brand new.

Nice. I dont think Ive owned Champions before. Are they light weight? My last ones were a brand called Tiger. Lol. I cant even remember where I got them to be honest.

I bought myself a new pair last week. They are Kangaroo. I never bought that brand before but they are really like on the feet and comfortable. They also have little zipper pockets on the side.

I had a pair of Reboks that just wouldn't wear out, I loved them! The more expensive shoes are by far the most comfortable and they also, last a lot longer. In the long run, you won't be sorry for investing in a pair of Nike gym shoes!

@maezee Once in a while, they last and last. But, the brand name shoes are always comfortable.

@kobesbuddy I dont totally agree. I last bought a pair of Under Armor shoes that were about $70 online and they were terribly uncomfortable! But I think it just depends on your feet.

@maezee Whenever they wear out and that varies. I go to Big 5 sporting goods which always has a sale.

It is nice that you can buy Nike with a nice price as usually this brand is very expensive. I bought Echo Dot lately and I look forward to receiving it soon.

@maezee It is a gadget from Amazon. You can regard it as a smart speaker.

I can't afford expensive running shoes like you have. I've bought the cheap ones and have bee wearing them for almost 2 years.

That works too. I thought 60 $ was pretty reasonable especially considering I hadnt boight them in about 3-5 years. I know plenty of people who pay in the hundreds for their shoes.

I'll bet those shoes feel really great. Shoes are the most important thing we wear. They are definitely worth the splurge. There's no price too high for a good pair of tennis shoes.

As a matter of fact I did. I bought some new slippers and love them. Now, I have two pairs. I don't use tennis shoes. I like yours and I like Nikes.
