A popular holiday gift maybe more affordable then you thought.

a study released in a danish medical journal shows that more expensive running shoes don't prevent injuries or make you run faster.

the journal of the danish medical association based its report on a survey of seven-thousand runners conducted by the u-s department of defense.

it concluded that expensive running shoes aren't any more effective than cheap ones.

in fact, it showed that cheaper running shoes often have better cushioning than the more expensive ones.

the survey concludes the same thing your mother would have told you- the main thing is to make sure your shoes fit well and are comfortable.
