So, I'm looking for some new running shoes, but something that I can afford in my budget. I'm looking to buy some Gel-Kayano made by Asics, but they're a little out of my price range. If anyone knows where I can find a site to buy some discounted shoes that would be great. Thanks.
My only source of advice is to scoop up a couple of pairs of the "older" edition when the newest edition is released. Zappos is a good source. Just make sure you've been fitted for the right shoe. Try Holabird Sports too.

I have a great tip for you! Buy the most expensive, nicest pair of shoes that you want. Make the purchase at Sports Authority and then pay the $30 for insurance. If you run more than 400 miles this year, it will destroy your shoes and you can get a full refund. The only money you won't get back is the money you spent on shoes. So, you'll be getting the best pair of running shoes they carry for only $30!!! Hope this helps!
I'm going to do this myself John thanks

Similar to John's advice, if you're a VIP member of Road Runner Sports (costs a mere $1.99) you get a 90 day wear them and return them guarantee. So you can put a bunch of miles on your shoes and return them.
All you pay is tax (if it even applies to you) and $8.99 return shipping - for two pairs too if you buy them!
Check them out at RoadRunnerSports.com
Good luck finding a pair that works for you!
