Now, when it comes to running shoes that's a different story! I have three pairs of shoes and I love them all! Unlike Mike, who still hasn't determined his brand of choice (and to be honest who knows if he will), I am a Saucony-girl through and through!
When we first started running, however, I went with the cheapest shoe I could find. I also went with one of the brands that I wore while on cross country in elementary school (I went to a K-8 school) and high school, Nike. Don't get me wrong I LOVE Nike clothes but their shoes aren't for me anymore.
I decided that I wanted to get the Saucony Kinvaras and the rest is history! I ended up LOVING them and also bought Saucony Mirages for my long runs. When Mike and I signed up for our duathlon and realized that the run legs were going to be on trails I bought the Saucony Peregrines.
Three pairs of shoes for three different kinds of runs and I wouldn't have it any other way! I would love to try the Kinvara TR for shorter trail runs too, I know I'm addicted!
There's always room for more running shoes!
My love for Saucony has also started to trickle into my running attire as well. I just bought a Saucony tank top that I am going to wear for the Rock 'n' Roll Chicago half marathon this weekend. It has a pocket for my energy gel and keys so I can wear my compression shorts during the race without having to use my SPIbelt! Plus it is bright green, love it!
I never thought I would be the type to have brand loyalty, but there is no denying it, I'm hooked on Saucony!
Do you have brand loyalty when it comes to your running shoes?
