Due to this, I suggest NOT buying shoes from sites like The Clymb unless you already know EXACTLY what size and model works for you. Purchasing items like hammocks or camping supplies have a very low risk of needing a return VS something like a pair of shoes. </p><p>Bonus: For many websites, if you sign into the store, add the item(s) to your cart, and wait for a day or two the site may send you a follow-up discount. Online stores will know when you’ve added to cart but not purchased, and they will try to entice you with a 10-25% off code. </p><p>And I’ve found some great stuff at Plato’s Closet and other “stylish” used stores, like a brand new Arc-Teryx jacket for $40.</p><p>Here in South Dakota when it gets under about 30 degrees I’ll do almost all of my running wearing a giant Columbia jacket that I got at a thrift store for $10. It can be -5*F and I can wear this jacket with just a t-shirt under it and be plenty warm.</p><p>If you want brand new athletic gear that’s fairly inexpensive, Target has some great options as well!</p><p style=”text-align: center;”><a draggable=”false” href=”http://www.runningwarehouse.com/CustService/returns.html” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Don’t get stuck with a useless pair of shoes – Running Warehouse.com</a></p><p>Nothing is more costly than spending $100 on a pair of shoes that you hate. It also must be mentioned that some sites like RWH and I believe at least Nike have great return policies. While I don’t recommend buying shoes with the intent to wear them, I know RWH will let you return a used pair of shoes for store credit. I’ve purchased 5 or so pairs from them at once and returned all but the pair that felt best while jogging on indoor carpet. RWH also apparently has non-expiration coupon codes!</p><p style=”text-align: center;”><a href=”http://holabirdsports.com/”>www.HolaBirdSports.com</a></p><p>Houston L replied to my <a href=”http://eepurl.com/dh0KjP”>newsletter</a> when I shared this post to recommend Holabird Sports for discounted last season shoes. If you have a model that works well for you, checking out last year’s stock and getting one or two more pairs for cheap after the new ones come out is wise!</p>
