Stories, training, and the good times that follow this Ironman Triathlete.
Runner's World shared an infographic on the history of the running shoe. Check this out:
That varus wedge from Brooks in 1977 caused me and a million others to have knee problems.
I purchased a pair of the New Balance 990 back in 1982 (The first $100 running shoe). They weighed about 5 lbs. each. They were well built, but just "too much shoe"
Yeah, New Balance couldn't sell the 990's at $75, but found that at $100, they couldn't keep them in stock! People assumed that the most expensive was the best and you get what you pay for. Before that, Reebok had the "26 Pound running shoe" (British pound - about $87 at the time)as the most expensive.
