I ran 7 miles this morning in my new Clifton 3’s.
I was trying to hold out for the new Hoka One One Clifton 4’s (due early Summer), but my knees were starting to give me some grief over the last week or so. Fortunately, the Clifton 3’s, which I was currently running in, have dropped in price. So, since I knew the exact size I needed, I picked up a new pair at Amazon for under $100.
It’s a great shoe, and my “old” pair lasted me around 450 miles (since January) – for comparison, I changed my Brooks Launch at 380 miles. I’ll look at the Clifton 4’s again in a few months. They have apparently made them more durable without sacrificing the cushioning.
My old Clifton 3’s will not get to rest just yet — I’ll keep them handy for running in the rain, muddy trails, etc.
How often do you retire your shoes?
