So last season! Save money on your running shoes

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Before you hit the ground running for those new athletic shoes, it's a good idea to shop around. Some new sneakers can cost hundreds of dollars.

Eyewitness News Consumer Reporter Patricia Lopez checked out deals in stores and online to find out where you can get the lowest prices.

One hugely popular brand of running shoes is Brooks. The brand new Brooks Glycerin 15 running shoe is selling for $150 a pair. You will not get a discount on freshly released merchandise, so look at last season's models.

These Brooks Glycerin's are discounted 20 percent off to $120 because they're last season's model.

To get a rock bottom price online, go back an additional season. The Brooks Glycerin 12 is almost 50 percent off at $79.98, but sizes will be limited.

Daily runners and exercise fans told Patricia because they have to change their shoes every six months they have to save money. Many swear by the clearance section on athletic shoe sites as the place to find the deals.

Great deals can also be found at physical stores, specifically Academy's clearance section. Patricia found prices slashed up to 70 percent off. Again, these are last season's models.

When we compared athletic shoes for men, several online sites were really competitive. Zappos, 6pm and Academy online all had similar pricing structures.

Don't forget when shopping online that the best deals have free shipping and free returns.
