I recently bought a pair of running shoes from an Aldi store, stop laughing!!. They were only £6.99 (!!!) and it seemed silly not to buy them. I could wear them to cross country events (obviously not to run the race in though) as these are usually a quagmire anyway. I could also maybe use them for some off-road runs and the odd race such as the Black Rock 5 in Fife which involves running in the sea. I wouldn't risk any road running though. So will I get my moneys worth or could I have gotten better value for my money by buying something else.

New here. Hi, by the way.

Welcome to the forum, Martin.

I have to say I think I would be dubious, your shoes are the most important investment, not sure I would take the chance... :confused: Hope they turn out ok.

I bought a pair of those trainers too... but just for work. They are comfy but I wouldn't do much running in them myself.

It depends how much you do I guess.

You could try them for a while but be aware of any unusual aches and pains.

I know specialist running trainers can be quite expensive but it's worth it if you do a lot of running and you want to have the best chance of avoiding injury.
