No offense, acole, I dig Jazz, but running in them? My feet and calfs (calves?) hurt just thinking.
They're Saucony Grid Jazz 8
s, actually, but this particular pair is
shot--I've pounded the midsoles into oblivion and they now feel like wooden clogs. Â It's actually my shins that hurt. Â I could tell they were really toast yesterday when I had occasion to run a short way in the Dino Certo monks I got from Lance (great shoes.); those actually felt better. Â The original attraction of the Grid Jazz was the $35 price tag;Â I'm headed off to The Runner's High this week to pick up something more suited to me. When I first started running I went 2.5 years wearing an already-old pair of Asics gel crosstrainers, which I also used for mountain biking. Â When I finally went to the running store for a replacement, it was because the soles had worn down into the midsole, and because one of them had completely detached from the shoe except at the toebox. Â The look on the salesgirl's face was absolutely priceless.
