  • I keep separate shoes just for running. Sometimes I retire my old running shoes to everyday status, but I have other shoes for every day. My running shoes are expensive, so I don't want to wear them out by wearing them everywhere, or wear them differently than how I run.

  • My running shoes were over $100 so I only wear them for running. I am not going to risk possibly altering how they fit on my feet while running by wearing for daily wear. I have 2 pr of running of those are over a year old, so I will wear them around the house or to pick up dd from school as I don't usually run in them anymore. I have walking shoes and regular ole' shoes that I bought at Walmart for $5 ( the really low tennis shoes).
    I run in my Brooks Ghosts as they were fitted to my feet.

  • I only wear running shoes for running. I never wear running or tennis shoes otherwise. I wear high heels most of the time.

  • Different shoes for different purposes. You would never wear tap shoes for jazz ballet would you? Or high heels for gardening would you? The shoes are specially designed for impact on certain surfaces and using different parts of the foot.
