Another cool feature is the Shoefitr (one of my Hood to Coast teammates, Nick End, helped develop this). Stolen from the Shoefitr website:
"Shoefitr, an application that shows how a shoe will fit using 3D scanning technology to compare the internal dimensions of shoes. When a customer is shopping online and finds a shoe she wants to buy, she tells Shoefitr the size and model of the shoe she currently has. Shoefitr then compares the measurements of the shoe the shopper currently has to the one she wants and recommends the correct size. The application also provides recommendations of other shoes that would fit the same as the customer’s preference."
Basically if you are running in a certain pair of running shoes and wonder how a different pair compares, you can use Shoefitr to let you know. Enough rambling.
The point of this drawn-out, off-task post is to let you know Running Warehouse is having a good sale on their gift cards until the 17th. $25 gift cards are $20. $50 gift cards are $40. $100 gift cards are $80. And $200 gift cards are $160.
Here is where the fun comes in. Let's say you buy a $100 gift card for $80 and you want to get the latest color of the Kinvara 3 for $89.95 ($100 retail, plus tax, which will cost you about $110 in Tennessee). Let's say you also are a member of a running club that gives a 15% or a 10% (runblog10) off code. You can order the gift card (can't use the code on it) and then buy your shoes with the card when it comes in. After the 15% or 10% off code, you are now paying a little bit over $76 or $81 for your shoes, with about $24 or $19 left on your gift card that you paid $80 for. Not a bad deal!
