Spring is here and several new models of shoes are out now. For bargain-minded runners, this means it’s time to stock up on the old models. When the new models come out, the manufacturers usually drop the prices of the old models. If you act quickly, you can save 20-40% off the regular price.
Here are a couple of examples. The Asics GEL-Cumulus 12 just came out and is priced at about $100. The old model, the Asics GEL-Cumulus 11, is priced at about $65. That’s a great buy.
The Asics GEL-Nimbus 12 was just introduced and is priced at about $125. The Asics GEL-Nimbus 11 is currently priced at about $100.
The Brooks Addiction 9 just came out at about $100. The Brooks Addiction 8 is currently selling for about $80.
The Nike Zoom Vomero+ 5 just came out at about $130. The Nike Zoom Vomero+ 4 is selling for about $100.
The list goes on and on. Check to see if there is a new model of your favorite shoe out and see if you can pick up the old model for a great price.
