Have you ever wondered about the benefits of racing shoes vs. trainers? Take a look at this post by Jerry over at iRunnerBlog where he provides a breakdown of both styles of shoes along with recommendations for their use.
As for myself, I have to admit that as I have pushed myself to go faster I have wondered about the potential benefits of using racing shoes. However, I have never purchased a pair of racing shoes because quite frankly I am not going to be winning a race anytime soon.
After reading this post I am tempted to want to try a pair of racing shoes to try for tempo runs or speed work and maybe eventually a race but for now I will stick with my New Balance 760 trainers.
