1000 Mile Shoes

If you walk 1000 miles, your feet will hurt. No doubt about it. My shoes have over 1000 trail miles on them and they were so good to me I bought a new pair. The day in and day out grinding of these shoes and the fact that they haven't fell off my feet is impressive for a pair of shoes that most people say last only 400-500 miles at most. My Pearl Izumi SyncroFuel Trail 2 shoes have seen better days and it's now time to turn them into the rubber gods. the pictures show what a beating you put your gear through. For a lightweight trail running shoe that has climbed 6000' peaks and slogged through mud for days on end, I'm happy. Here's to another 1000 miles and more sore feet and mud.
