Results of Running Shoe Price Survey

Recently, readers responded to a survey that I conducted to find out how much people are willing to spend on running shoes.  Here are the results:

Most people are willing to pay up to about $100 for a pair of running shoes, perhaps as much as $110.  Some people are bargain-hunters (I’m one of these) who wait for sales or check out the outlet stores for the lowest prices.  Others are willing to pay top dollar for the latest zero drop running shoes.

Where do you like to buy your running shoes: in a specialty running store, in a sporting goods store, in a outlet store, or on-line?  What do you do to save on running shoes?  Tell me in comments.

  5. runsweetrun said: Those results are about what I expected. I fall in that $90 - $110 category. I usually buy my shoes at a specialty running store. I still consider myself a runnig newbie and like their professional knowledge and input.
