Even if you're not a runner (or much of a walker), you know a good pair of kicks can set you back A LOT of money. And it's not like you can keep a pair forever. In fact, many experts think we should replace our sneakers every six months or so.
So if there's a way to save on these essentials, then we're all ears. And recently, RunRepeat.com (a site that reviews running shoes) came out with a survey that compared roughly 189,000 shoes bought online with their in-store prices. The site's discovery: If you buy sneakers online, you'll save 38 percent per pair (or $46.20). And if you buy last year's models, you can save an extra $15. That's a total of $61 per pair!
Of course, you might have to take a chance that the online models won't fit, or be as comfy as you'd like. Then you'll have to return them. But if you've been wearing the same type for years, and know your shoe size, then there's a good bet you'll score an awesome deal--a whopping 86 percent of all running shoes are for sale at discounted prices online, according to RunRepeat.com.
