Unfortunately, I am just your average runner who spends for his shoes. Once I reach my planned 50 to 60km+ / week mileage in preparation for my first marathon, this means that I need to replace my shoes every 4 months! This is an expensive proposition considering that a good pair of running shoes costs at least Php 5,000 (around US$ 110).
What is the solution then to this predicament? Well, last week, I just read that there is such a thing as a 1,000 miles shoe. I told myself, if this is indeed true, I think this is the immediate solution to my problem. Imagine, that's 1,600 kilometers! With a mileage of 60 km per week, this pair of shoes will last at least 7 months!
I have listed below some of the highlights about this pair of shoes.
- 8 years in development in collaboration with the Army Physical Training Corps.
- Awarded with the rights to bear the British Army's famous crossed swords insignia.
- Costs around 95 pounds which is roughly 6,600 pesos.

I find it a very appealing pair of shoes because of its style and dark colors. Now, my biggest problem is, how can I get one?
