Ah man, these definitely make me a cliche, don't they? I was hoping my Free 5.0 v4s would last me another year, but the soles had worn straight through and I figured I should get a new pair for the good of my feet. Rebel was having a buy one get the second half price sale on shoes, and my mother really wanted to buy a pair (she heard about the sale and went and examined my old pair for defects, otherwise I'd probably still be in blissful ignorance right now). Since they didn't have them in beautiful blue and red, I went for a fail-safe black and white and the price worked out well.
To be honest, I still like my old pair better, but I'm just being sentimental and picky . I've only been for one run in these before I was struck down by a cold, but they're definitely feeling better on the feet than my last pair - so it was probably time for new runners anyway. I guess I'll keep my old pair to wear just for walking around on non-rainy days.
