As is customary, I present my running shoes for 2017 - the Nike Free RN Flyknit.
They may not appear to all tastes, but having adhered to and embraced the benefits of barefoot running in recent years, these should provide the stylish protection that my feet require when covering longer distances.
Although they usual retail for £110, upon visiting my local Nike outlet store yesterday, they were priced at £63.00, with an additional 30% off the lowest ticket price. As such, the price at the till was £44.10.
Upon purchasing the first pair, I considered the price too good an opportunity to pass up, so returned shortly afterwards, to purchase a second pair.
