Everyone loves a steal -- but when it comes to your running gear, sometimes it's important to spring for the real deal. Here's when you can save versus when it's time to splurge.

When shopping for shorts, keep your eyes out for some serious savings. "Tons of brands are making running-specific shorts with fun additions like mini pockets for your keys," says Matthews. "You can definitely save and still get a good value, so long as they don't ride up." But if you prefer running in tights, splurge for the better quality. "You can feel the difference between a pair that's made right versus one that's not," says Matthews. Choosing a pair that's breathable and reduces chafing will make long runs much more bearable.
