Whatever you may call them – sneakers, tennis shoes, workout shoes, running shoes, etc., there are some really good deals going on right now on athletic shoes. Since I workout outside most of the year, mine get beat up and dirty way too quickly. I love getting a new tennis shoes (I’m from Ohio originally and that’s what we called them growing up), but it hurts to spend over $100+ on a new fancy pair. Especially if you are a runner and can’t wear the cheaper brands or styles. But I suppose it hurts more when my group fitness instructors make me do upwards of 50 burpees in a class, but that’s a whole different type of pain. #isecretlylikeit
Nike.com has an extra 20% off all clearance items, including shoes and apparel for women, men and kids using code MOTION. You can also get free shipping if you sign up for a Nike+ account (details here).
I have this exact pair of Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 print shoes and I’m in love with them. The pattern is just enough fun to make the shoes interesting, but since they are black and white they match with everything. With the promo code they come down to $75.98 (originally $120).
A couple pairs of sneakers ago, I owned Nike LunarGlides and they were maybe my most comfortable pair ever. They have extra stability in the back for those of you who pronate or just like added support. I made the mistake of purchasing a stark white pair with hot pink accents. They were awesome looking for about a month or two when they started to turn a sad shade of dirty grey. RIP white LunarGlides.
I know a lot of serious runners hate on Nike’s, but I’ve always been a fan. I have no problems wearing them for my bootcamp-type workout and they always have the best styles in my opinion. This pair of Nike LunarGlide 7’s is also $79.98 (originally $125) and are great since they are starting out grey.
When I purchased my print Nikes above, I tried out this exact pair of Asics GEL-Quantum 360. They were ridiculously comfortable, but I ultimately went with the Nikes because I know they work for me. However, the bright color on these is awesome and I know there are a ton of Asics fans out there.
Right now, Roadrunner Sports has 25% off all shoes for the entire family. You have to pay $1.99 to join their VIP program (more info here), but that also gives you free shipping plus a 90 day trial period on your shoes. That means you can wear them for a couple months and if you decide they aren’t for you, you can return them. Amazing, right? How many times have we all purchased shoes that ultimately end up hurting our feet?
A ton of real-deal runners confidently state they can only wear Brooks. I know I’ve ripped on Brooks before in the past, but let’s be honest, we all know they aren’t the most attractive shoes ever made. Most people buying Brooks are doing so because they are great for your feet. I actually like these Brooks Launch 3 in Tokyo Dragon. See, it is possible to wear good-looking comfortable shoes!!
Finally, how cute are these floral Asics Gel Noosa shoes, which are now 25% off at Nordstrom? They come down to $100.59 with no code required. Nordstrom is always ridiculously amazing about returns. I guarantee if you wore these once and hated them, Nordstrom would take them back with no questions asked. Plus free shipping everyday.
Any other brands of athletic shoes that you love? And what do you call them where you are from?
