Kind Runner: The Answer to that Pile of Old Running Shoes


As a runner and coach I am always asked about shoes: what kind to buy, where to buy, what to do with old shoes? So what are the answers? I always tell new runners to talk to an expert and get fitted without regards to color or style and be open to what the expert suggests. I love buying online, especially now with a 3 year old going to a store running store is work! What’s better than ordering shoes while sitting on the couch and drinking coffee at 5am?! This is where Kind Runner comes in…

Kindrunner.com will be launching on June 1st. An online running store founded and staffed by runners/ expert running shoe fitters with 40+ years of experience in the running industry. They will be able to get you in the correct running shoe from the convenience of your home! Complete with product guidance and product review videos too!

And now to second and in my opinion best part about KindRunner; their effort to change the world for the better! This is what sets them apart from other online running stores
J KindRunner is the only place on the web where runners can trade in their old running shoes for new ones. For each old pair sent in you will receive Kindness Cash Rewards that can be applied to any product on the site. KindRunner will then give your old shoes to their shoe donation partners that include Soles 4 Souls. Your old shoes will be repurposed and given to non-runners who need them for basic transportation and protection from disease and injury, they will go to places throughout the US and beyond. Look at just a small portion of my old shoes, I know we all have these just waiting for a new purpose!

Less than 1 year's worth of shoes!
So what do you think about KindRunner??!!  I am very excited to see them launch June 1st - and was thrilled when they asked me to be a KindRunner Ambassador!  I really believe in the mission of this company and am excited about sharing it with others!  As an ambassador I will get the opportunity to try new running products and share them with you guys also!  

Head on over and check them out FacebookTwitterInstagram, and YouTube! You may even win a free pair of running shoes! They are giving away a year's worth of running shoes to you and a running partner of your choice (3 pairs each)! To enter all you have to do is sign up on their email list (make sure your chosen running partner signs up too). Also, once they receive 500 likes on their Facebook page they are giving away a free pair of shoes to one of their followers! Seriously, what is better than free running shoes?!

Do you have old shoes in your closet that you need to get rid of? What do you do with old running shoes? 


*I am an ambassador for kindrunner.com. I will be doing campaigns involving product reviews and giveaways provided by kindrunner. As always all the opinions expressed will be mine.

  5. Anything that ties in me buying something/doing something that betters my life and doing something for charity at the same time is a winner in my book! Just like Toms Shoes... love the philosophy and love this philosophy!
