I have a dilemma at the moment, I bought some asics gel nimbus 14's a couple of weeks ago which are very comfy and are broken in as I have done about 50 miles in them, but I don't know whether to wear my Nike zoom elites for the Birmingham half marathon on Sunday??? I've never worn the elites for more than 6 mile runs but have done a couple of 10 milers in the gel nimbus 14's. Any ideas???

I would take a small risk and go for the elites. Any major problems would have been felt after 6 miles and I've never gone on to have a problem with shoes that felt fine after 6 miles.

Thanks for the advice, think I will go for the elites as they are lighter

I have had problems with shoes during a half marathon that I didn't have problems with on 6 mile runs but that wouldn't stop me experimenting with new ones during a half in the future! 13 miles isn't too long if they don't suit!!! Go for the Elites!
