These Ugly Running Shoes are...Indestuctible!

Indestructible Out Soles

These ugly running shoes are indestructible!  What gives?

Despite my best efforts, the out soles of these Ugly Runners haven't shown any wear.  I've recently run on some gnarly surfaces including rocks, concrete sidewalks and in heavy rain.  Nothing, not a scuff mark to make a difference.  I have noticed that they don't like the rain though...no traction at all.  Another strike.

I know, I know...I should bite the bullet, get rid of these ugly things and pick up a Snazzy pair.  But as you know I am a cheap bugger loathe to spend money on myself (I can hear Sally warming up right about now).

And of all the things to skimp on:  Running Shoes!  Back in the day when I was competing in Triathlons I thought nothing of spending over $1,000 on a special Giant Tri Bike (I told you it was back in the day...today that same bike would go for $3,000).  And it was nothing to buy special Aero bars, pumps and bottles without a second thought.

I guess since I've bought so many running shoes over the years that the thought of wasting money on this one ugly pair has caused this angst.

'Shoe gods where are you when I need you most?'

Until next time...
