In my last affiliate fatblogging post, I mentioned how I was in the market for some new running shoes, and I asked for recommendations with affiliate links.
It was nice to see the altruistic responses, where lots of folks encouraged me to go to a store where they would perform a gait analysis, and have the salesperson pick out some shoes based on my needs.
I found a local place called The Running Company – they have stores all over NJ, as well as CT, DC, MA, MD, NY, and TX.
The guy at the store I visited (Westfield, NJ) was really helpful and gave me a gait analysis, as well as looking at my current running shoes to determine how they were wearing.
They are super light and comfortable, and they include a little compartment for the Nike + iPod Sport Kit, which I use.
I’d definitely encourage fellow Internet nerds to refrain from buying online and getting a proper reccomendation for running shoes at their local store.
