Runner feels sick after parents sell his trainers with his orthotics inside

19 year old Scott Ashton had been out for a run and slipped his trainers off before he went into the house. Somehow they got mixed up with the items in his parents’ garage sale and were sold for $2. It wasn’t particularly the $200 Asics trainers that Scott was upset about but the orthotics inside the trainers that are worth $700.

Flat footed Scott, who gets severe back pain if he doesn’t wear his orthotics, is now pleading with the buyer who accidentally bought the trainers to return them see article here

So tip of the day: if you give your worn out shoes to a charity shop or sell them at a boot fair, make sure you take your orthotics out first
