running shoe demo day coming to detroit!!!!

i gave a hidden teaser to an event i'm looking forward to in my injury post earlier in the week, but now i want to dedicate an entire post to it because i'm so freaking exciting!

runDETROIT is hosting a running shoe demo day. they're bringing all of the top shoe brands and allowing you to try any shoe you want, FOR FREE, for as long as you want on a running course they're setting up! you can try on as many shoes as you want for as long as you want. and there's no pressure to buy anything

how freaking amazing is that?????

i signed up immediately when i heard about it. with all the issues i have with shoes, and all the pairs i have purchased over the past year, a day where i can try on as many shoes as i like is a running dream come true for me. i'll probably spend all day there. i'm not joking.

if you're in the area, check it out! i wasn't asked to publicize this event in any way, i'm just so excited about it, i had to share because i'm sure there are others like me who could benefit from an event like this! there's also supposed to be nutrition, gps units and other running accessories to try. hoorah!

has anyone else gone to a shoe demo day like this? i have no idea what to expect!


  1. This sounds like an amazing event! The closest I've seen is at one of the running stores in the Milwaukee area that will host fun runs featuring a shoe brand and runners can try out that shoe during the run. But I really like the idea of trying out several in one go :)

  2. Sounds like a great way to try out different shoes with out being pressured by sales people. Have fun!
