I’m somewhat loathe to admit the amount of time I’ve spent over the past week scouring the web in search of good deals on running shoes and related gear (and even more importantly, Christmas presents for the kids!). So far I’ve only made one purchase (the new GPS watch that my saintly wife will be giving me for Christmas – finally upgrading from the Garmin 205 to the recently price-dropped Forerunner 610), but for shoe junkies there are plenty of good deals out there.
Below are some of the best among the running-specific sales that I’ve come across (update 11/27/2012 – I’ve removed all expired Cyber Monday only sales, remaining sales are still active – I will continue to update Holiday sales here as needed).
I’ll disclose that all links below are affiliate links, so any purchases you make through them help to support me and Runblogger.com – you save some money from the sales, and I get a small percentage of any purchase made. The content on this blog will always be freely accessible, and I purchase about half of the shoes that I review myself, so advertising and affiliate relationships support the work that I do and help to justify the time that I put in (which can be considerable!).
I greatly appreciate your continued support, and thanks for reading!
