Which Pair?????

Case 1:
I have had my eye on these boots for almost a year now. I thought that they would match a leather jacket that I have (the burnished black pair... I think they look brown). I want them for the motorcycle. I want to be a bit different and not just go with the basic black boots, coat and chaps.

Cost: $220 plus applicable taxes

Case 2:
I am at about 250 miles on my present running shoes. I should be in the market for a new pair. I am switching brands so I would like to get the new ones while my weekly runs are still relatively short. There is nothing worse than trying to break in a new pair of shoes on long runs.

Cost: approx. $160 plus taxes

What do you think?

Today I did a 7 mile run and may do some leg work if I get the energy. My hip flexors are sore after this run. I am going to run again tomorrow and do some trails and hills. I will have to take it easy as I am not used to consecutive runs, and I don't want to ruin a good thing! Tomorrow I may also do an upper body workout.

Breaking new shoes in...if your doing that you've got the wrong shoes!

I say go for the boots!!! You still have a few good miles left on the running shoes - next pay cheque get the runners.

Adidas stopped making my favorite runners. So I have been searching and searching..... no luck yet (5 pairs later).
