So, I have a new pair of Altra One2's that I got this summer thanks to generous customer support at Altra. They're not quite in the rotation yet but they've been out on the town for a few miles just to get a feel for them. (*Disclosure: these were Shoes-to-get-shoes, not Shoes-because-I-needed-shoes). Tonight I pulled out the shoes they are going to replace in the lineup my very lovely and been good to me so far Brooks Pure Connects which I have loved since October when I picked them up at my secret cheap shoes source (Marshalls).
They're pushing 400 miles on them and tonight they started to feel it.
But my question is (because this was nagging in my head as I ran tonight)
Did they feel older because I have a new pair just itching to get some miles on them and that have that new-out-of-the-box feel that always makes it easy and fun to go out running, or did they feel older because, well, they're older.
(And Pete you probably can't comment on this since I imagine that with the fleet of review shoes that your shoes never age and you have found the shangri-la of new-out-of-the-box running shoes, review samples that magically keep arriving at your doorstep)(kidding)
