Got a New Year’s resolution for 2010? If so, chances are you plan to either start an exercise program or up the ante on an existing one, which is one of the most common goals people set for themselves. If you’re like me, you definitely love the results from working out, but you may need an extra kick in the pants to really get started – particularly after the free-for-all love-fest we call the holidays. Of course, a cute pair of workout shoes can certainly provide motivation, especially when they are on sale and go along with another popular “spend less, save more” resolution many people make. If you aim to slim both your waistline and your spending, try these sales out:
Check out the athletic shoes at Amazon, where you can typically find great sales (albeit pesky alternating prices for every size and color). Get really low prices in their under $25 or $25-$50 section. The classic Reebok Nylon Running Shoe (pictured above) in white/light grey or white is $31.75 in most sizes.
Get an extra 20% off sale items at Shoes.com, including their selection of women’s athletic shoes on sale. Use code WINTER at checkout until 1/4/10. The Fila Storm Watch above is $45.60 before coupon, $36.48 after.
Or, peruse the women’s athletic shoes at Shoesteal, the clearance site for Shoes.com, for extra-good prices. Then, get another 20% off at checkout with coupon code BUBBLY20 until 1/10/10. The Asics Gel-1120V in red or blue is on sale for $59.99, but falls to $47.99 after coupon.
There’s always a deal to be had at 6pm. Check out their selection of running shoes on sale with prices starting at $17 from brands like Kangaroos, Saucony, Nike, Asics and more. I like the Kangaroos Magnolia in three color choices for $32.78 (retail $59.95). Update: 6pm has Nike shoes on sale for 60% off today 1/5/10 only.
Kohls has plenty of working out shoes on sale and they take another 20% off with coupon code ATHLETIC20 until 1/7/10. The Adidas Duramo trail running shoe is on sale for $44.99, but drops to $35.99 after coupon. Update: This coupon code excludes Skechers Shape-ups, but you can use new coupon codes JANSAVE15 for 15% off any order or JANTAKE20 for 20% off $100 until 1/6/10. They both work on Shape-ups. Update2: Use coupon code EXTRA20 for an additional 20% off any order, including Shape-ups, until 1/19/10. That takes another $20 off Skechers Shape-ups priced at $99.

The New Balance for Nine West collection is on sale at Nine West. You’ll also enjoy an extra 30% or 50% off at checkout, making these stylish kicks as low as $25 with free shipping. The New Balance for Nine West Dedra is reduced to $34.99.
Update: Piperlime is taking an extra 20% off sale items today, 1/5/10, only. The coupon code is TREAT4ME and you can apply it to their selection of athletic shoes on sale. I love the pink New Balance 993 for $89.99 (regularly $140) before coupon, $71.99 after.
Update 2: Get $10 off any pair of athletic shoes at DSW using coupon code FIT10 until 1/13/10.
