Post running footwear

Hello everyone,

I was looking for some advice or personal preference on post running footwear.

I hear different people suggest all sorts from sandals to barefoot. I'm looking for something I can slip on after a race to give my feet a break.

I've seen these from Solomon, which aare supposed to be before and after sport shoes:

  • you don't need anything special - just comfortable.  don't waste your money on anything special

  • Exactly. Post running shoes ? Just a way to part people from their money.
  • i always take a pair of old flipflops

  • Thanks folks. To be honest, i did think it was a bit of a gimmik but I mainly wanted to see what other people did. I used to just keep my shoes on I ran in but I don't want to do that anymore. What do you all wear?

  • depends on the weather and what I'm doing.  at home - barefoot or slippers; out - fit flops or another pair of comfy footwear in colder weather

    Thanks for this. I think flip flops are for me. I spend 90% at home in barefeet but wanted something when I'm out and after a race.

  • I said Fit Flops - not flip flops.  they are the much comfier - and much more expensive versions - of flip flops.  www.fitflops.co.uk 

  • Ah, thought that was a typo. Look comfy but not cheap image

  • some on sale at the mo though....half price for many styles image

    believe me, once you've tried them you'll love them.  I now have some fitflop shoes - on my feet as I write

  • Aren't they for girls ????
  • nope - loads of mens styles Cougs.   get with them bro... image

  • What about crocs??

  • errm - how would you like your death??  slow - my preference - or quick??? image

    go wash your mouth out and never utter that word again

  • image Why whats wrong with them?

  • "recovery shoes"...this really is a gimmick...flip-flops, sandals, slippers...anything that feels comfortbale is fine...

  • Thanks guys. Slippers, GENIUS, never thought of that. Although I'm barefoot at home so will need to get a pair.

  • Crocs flip flops in the summer, cant beat the crocs image and I have a pair of NB 110's that sit in my car that i use the rest of the time, they are comfy to wear without socks, for some reason i never took to running in them but they are my favourite post run shoe if it's too cold for flip flops!!!

  • Wearing slippers after a run? Do you think I'm gullible or something?
  • I'm a fitflop sort of a girl. My OH has men's fitflop sports sandals which he loves. They are not cheap but he wears them on holiday/summer.
  • oh yes fit flops = so comfy (if expensive) after a loooong run where your feet think about divorcing you.

  • Lovely, but can I do the gardening in them?
  • Board shoes for me, although my son disowns me if I walk around town in them. (£6)

     

  • So the disadvantage of board shoes (whatever they are) are you look like a pratt. So what are the advantages? Apart from being cheap
  • i actually wear my vibram classics home from a race, or merrell's, 

  • Take a look at Xero Shoes (formerly Invisible Shoes) - www.xeroshoes.co.uk

    Simon.

  • what about post run headwear?

  • Depends on whether you win or not. If you win, you'd need to wear the crown.
