Deal of the Day on award-winning runners

Planning to put in a lot of miles in 2013? Of course you are, and whether you strictly adhere to the 400-600 miles/pair rule or just replace them based on treadwear (hint: your body will tell you when to start fresh, trust me), chances are you'll need a new pair sometime this year. And there's no time like the start of a new year to invest in last year's discounted models.

Now through Monday morning EST, The Clymb is selling a number of great models from Saucony, Mizuno, Innov-8, Asics, New Balance and at deep discounts of up to 75%. Here's a sneak peek:

Women (click here for sale)
• Asics GEL-1170
Just a year ago, Runner's World named this shoe a Best Buy, noting its balance of value and comfort: "...it's a well-balanced shoe—sufficiently soft for heel-and midfoot-strikers but not mushy—and a great choice for long training runs and marathons." A value at $90, sure, but now you can get it for $50 (a 44% discount).

• New Balance 1080 v2
Our friends at Running Shoes Guru gave NB's premiere neutral shoe a solid 8 out of 10 score early in 2012, mentioning its unobtrusive, "natural" feel and decent cushioning given its lightweight build. They call it a go-to long run shoe, with the only drawback being its steep, $150 price tag. Now it's $80 (a 47% discount.)

Men (click here for sale)
• Mizuno Wave Creation 13
The Wave Creation may be one of the most technology-packed running shoes of all time, but its $150 price tag held it back from widespread popularity. This is despite accolades as a great neutral stability shoe from the likes of Runner's World and Running Shoes Guru. Now it's only $90 (a 40% discount).

• Mizuno Wave Inspire 8
Turning back the clock after a sweeping redesign on the 7s, the Inspire 8 won back runners who'd soured on Mizuno's moderate support line. This low-profile, breathable shoe has good cushioning and stability (with great arch support), but isn't too chunky to race in. And now it's marked down from $115 to $65 (a 43% discount).
