Just bought some Mizuno wave paradox from pro direct running, a/w '14 colours and also s/s reduced from £105 down to £45 (ladies).
Other shoes in last season colours also on there at bargain basement price, brooks adrenaline trail runners for 35 quid .
Not sure Gideon, I really doubt it'll be waterproof. But as jackets go, I'd say it's a bargain for that price.
More for the cross trainers / triathletes than the pure runners, but wiggle currently have ladies DHB 2014 Ride London cycling tops for £3 http://www.wiggle.co.uk/dhb-womens-prudential-ridelondon-surrey-100-jersey/ Currently have sizes 6,8,10,12.
Might be useful as a cheap top for someone!

More Aldi running gear on the 16th.
I only found out recently that a club mate of mine gets most of his running shoes from TK Maxx. I find it can be a bit chaotic looking through stock but definitely worth a look. Last time I checked they had (last year's model??) Brooks Ghost and Brooks Transcend (I think) going for 40 quid. Various Nike models in the past.
I didn't buy any shoes but I did pick up five pairs of socks for six pounds.
Even better than TK Maxx, Start Fitness had their usual stall at the national road relays yesterday, with lots of "last year's model" type bargains. Brooks Defyance 5, 35 quid. Thank you very much!

Wouldn't be seen dead in Sports Direct
If you are after some thermals, gloves hats etc then Sub Zero Store have some bargains at the moment. I should have a very happy (and warm) hubby after buying him some decent baselayers for his winter training.
Sportspursuit have the white/silver Newton Men's Distance S IV for £67.99 today, which is a hell of a deal.
(It's a very fast 2mm drop road shoe with very mild stability, so fine for the neutral crowd too. If you're not used to lower drops, you'd be wanting to ease into it with shorter runs.)
If you're not a SportPursuit member, you could send me a private message with an email address, and I could send you an invite, which would wangle me a fiver when you order However, if you've no wish to accidentally subsidize my running gear addiction, then you can always register normally (which is quicker, I suppose).
I bloody love me some Newtons, trying to tell myself that I don't need yet another pair, even if it's a killer deal.
"deadly2", new user, first post, check. Appears to have something to "promote", check.
We have an astroturfer, repeat we have an astroturfer, open fire!
(Also, astroturfing is stupid. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth, as you just remember that the brand is slimy and dishonest, using sock puppets to push gear.. )
Kattefjaes - Thanks for the heads up. I recently got a pair of Newton BOCO AT's (trail shoes) and whilst they are perhaps closer to 'normal' trainers than 'true' Newtons I quite like them so have been having a look at these.
In doing a bit of reseach on these I see that you can get 50% off a range of styles directly from newtonrunning.co.uk so I think I'm going to treat myself to a pair from there (trying to decide between the Gravity @ £70 or Distance @ £67.50 - I have to confess, I'm struggling to tell the difference in them or which might be faster over the longer distances - I would have thought 'Distance' but I'm not so sure!!)
Yes - that's where I got mine from, I meant to post on here but then forgot and they all seem to have gone now. I've only done 3 x 10 milers in them, just down the canal towpath so not extreme off-road but with some soft muddy sections with lots of leaf mulch and I quite like them!
Oh, good catch, Phil! Ok, that's horribly tempting.
Yes, the Distance should theoretically be the "faster" ones, they have a lower weight, lower drop etc.. They both list as having POP1 lugs, which are at the more extreme end.
Bear in mind that the lugs on the Distance and Gravity will be pretty hardcore- which will make them feel REALLY weird when you walk, though of course they feel amazing as you run, assuming you're a mid/forefoot striker.
I love my Motion IV to bits, though- easily my favourite shoes. I really am not going to try and dissuade anyone but the most committed heel strikers from sipping the delicious Newton kool-aid.
