Do You Wear Running Shoes When You're Not Running?

Do You Wear Running Shoes When You're Not Running?

When I was in college, running shoes with jeans was quite a popular look. But although I wear casual sneakers for everyday comfort, I reserve my running shoes for running and working out. How about you?

I wear running shoes for walking a lot and going to the gym and doing circuit training with weights free form and machine... I felt stable in them and just to wear with my shorts and jeans. Am I suppose to wear proper shoes? They come in cool colors, cross trainers are boring and not vibrant.

javsmav is right. If you run, running shoes need to be for running only! Your foot pattern when you run is NOT the same as when you do your everyday errands! Running shoes really need to be reserved for running and running alone.... I have chronic knee issues and along with the addition of orthotics my ortho strongly reminded me not to mix gym shoes, running shoes, and casual shoes. It may cost more up front, but it tremendously makes a difference!

i don't usually wear running shoes unless i'm at the gym, but there have been times that i've gone hiking or something and have chosen to wear them for the added support. i typically wear pumas if i'm wearing sneakers on a daily basis, and most of my pumas are more of a fashion sneaker than a function one -

I have two pairs of running shoes. One is a old pair that I used to run in and the present pair that I currently run in. The old pair I would wear when I am doing house stuff or going to the grocery store. I leave the pair that I am running in off and only use it when exercising.

I only wear running shoes for running to preserve their useful life! If I'm standing or walking around and need comfort/arch support, I wear my dansko clogs - I actually think they are MORE comfortable for my feet/knees/back if I'm just standing or walking, and they blend in with non-workout clothes better than my running sneaks.

I never wear running shoes or sneakers unless I'm at the gym. I wear heels pretty much all the time, or flats if I'm looking for something more comfortable. I know, I know, I'm ruining everything but I can't help it, they're so pretty.

I did the first year my daughter was a newborn. I was lucky enough to get my damn clothes on that first year, let alone my workout shoes! ..So not so much anymore, it makes me feel like a bum.. Now if I really have to bum-it I'll wear glitzy flipflops to the grocery store or whatever. (My husband hhhhhates flipflops though. He calls them slutslippers, lol.)

I'll wear my old ones for walks, and my new ones for running only. I don't wear sneakers when I'm not doing something active.

I only wear running shoes when I'm running or walking, every other time i'm either in heels for work or flip flops and flats for outside of work.

I wear my retired running shoes for errands sometimes because when they're too worn out for running, they still look OK on the outside. But I try to wear my current running shoes for running ONLY.
