Think it’s okay if I wear these around with my pajamas? How long do you take to break in new shoes?
No idea on how long it takes to break in shoes, I got new ones about 2 weeks before my first half and it was little rough. Love the history of your shoes!
Love this! Have fun breaking them in, in the funnest way possible!!!
I break in my shoes by going for a run in them!! It honestly shouldn't be much of a break-in period if they fit right!
OMG love these!!! I don't break in shoes–I usually just go! PS: I'm hosting a virtual 5k, if you are interested!http://bugsbees.blogspot.com/2011/08/virtual-5k-for-coffee.html
Very nice! I just put mine on & go. No real break-in though I don't wear for long runs until I've done a week in shorter runs first.
Gotta love new shoes! I am running in my first pair of sauconys and loving them.
I just got a new pair yesterday. I wore them around the house and out shopping for a few hours yesterday and again today, I am going to do 5 miles in them tomorrow. I hope that isn't too much too soon in them! Would love to hear what others say. And PS- I love your blog! I just got back into running myself and am hooked!
Break in shoes???? That's an old wives tale1 LOL… I just start running…..
I'm in the “Just Do It” camp 😉 Go run!
I never break in my shoes. I wear them only on shorter runs – up to 12k – until I know they're okay and then they get put into the shoe rotation.
