Best extremely durable shoes for Women who land on their heel

There are durable shoes and then there are extremely durable shoes. Extremely durable shoes can withstand pavement pounding and trail climbing. They're shoes that go past the traditional 300 mile replacement mark and allow you to get up to 600 miles. And while we wouldn't recommend giving them as heirlooms to your children, extremely durable shoes truly can withstand the test of time.
