    Question Good running shoes?

    OK, I am looking for a pair of running shoes.

    1. Can anyone recommend a good pair?
    2. What brands should I look at (Nike, Puma, Adidas, ect.)?
    3. Are Nike Shox good?


    THANKS!

    Nike and Reebok worked best for me.

    I like Nike more, but you have to be careful, b'coz some of their shoes feel really heavy. I like light and airy ones.

    Easy Spirit (?) has some really nice sneakers too. Check them out.

    Jess go to Roadrunnerssports.com and use their dog helper to choose your perfect shoes. I think you can return them even after they have been used up to a month. I have not purchased from them in a long time but they used to have this. Currently I am using a Saucony Grid Fusion. LOve them

    Nike fits me better than any other running shoe since my feet are narrow. I wouldn't recommend Shox though since they are heavy.
    Is there a local shoe store that will custom fit you for shoes?

    I'm gonna go shoe shopping tomorrow...hopefully I can find some shox that are half mesh, that way they will be cooler and not so heavy.

    IMO, Shox are NOT good for running.

    I think Asics are one of the best brands of running shoes.

    You just need to get the right style for you, based on the pronation of your foot, like whether you have a high arch or flat one....

    P.S. My hubby bought Nike Shox because he thought they'd be great, he has bad knees and they actually made it worse!!! Shox are nothing but looks and not performance.
    You can put your boots in the oven,
    but that don't make em biscuits...

    ok i work for niketown san francisco.... depends on what ur looking for. our shoes are broken in to 3 sections the first is stability, second is cushioning and the third is light weight. stability is used only when you over pronate or u need the extra arch support... and in that case you would probably try the structure traix but if you have a neutral foot and you want A LOT of cushion then you would want to try the vomero 3 or 4 or the air max 360 or the air max 2009 which is the upgraded version of the the 360s. last is the light weight shoes which are for people who run NO MORE than 5 miles a week . if u are one of those people that like the light weight then u should try the lunartrainers which right now arent the greatest looking thing but they are very light.... or you could try the nike air starters which have the same cushioning as the vomero but in a more of a light weight shoe.....


    i know its A LOT to take in but if u have ANY question just PM me and ill be able to help you out....


    GOOD LUCK ON TRYING TO FIND UR RUNNING SHOES.

    Nike is the best, i use it with Nike+ and my iTouch and it's really great.

    Don't buy the Shox, it's not a good choice. You should take the "Lunar Trainer".
