My old running shoes are falling apart, i need new ones. I was thinking about buying nike shoes, but what kind of running shoes do you think are the best?
hahaha oh god i want a pair so much!! i think ill go and try a few pairs on when i have time, loralora
I looove my Reebok reeflex's!
They're really light, they're not thick/padded on top, so your feet can breathe & they're flexible, so you don't feel like your shoes are changing how you foot falls when you run.
But I suggest you also try the 'Reezig' shoes - equally light, my mom has them & loves them. Nothing too different from the run-f-the-mill running shoes, but way lighter.
Wow, Reebok should pay me for all the publicity I'm doing for them!
There is no easy answer for this. People have amazingly different feet and strides, and if you're serious about running then the little things matter.My old running shoes are falling apart, i need new ones.

That's a lot of great advice .There is no easy answer for this. People have amazingly different feet and strides, and if you're serious about running then the little things matter.
Go to a running/triathalon specialty shop. Foot locker and the like don't count. Have one of the employees look at your feet and talk to you about your needs. Try many different kinds of shoes on. If you have any issues like shin splints, etc., then I also recommend having them analyze your gait. A high quality shop should provide this service, for free, and often with video.
I cannot overemphasize the need to try on a variety of shoes, with someone knowledgeable helping. Trust me, I've spent so much money over the years, just buying the new brand or what some person on the internet recommended.
All that said, I've learned that certain models of Asics are practically tailor-made for my feet.
I recently bought the Asics new balance and they feel great!I always go Asics but I've been eyeing a pair of new balance (the more natural ones supposed to feel more like barefoot running)
However I would suggest making sure you get a good shoe for your foot no matter what brand. Some stores will watch you walk, see if you overpronate ect. and can help recommend a good shoe. I have low archs so for some activites I need lots of support but since I usually wear flats and other flat shoes and my feet never hurt I'm thinking of trying the barefoot style.
But definitely go more for how it fits and feels rather than looks of the shoe. If your feet hurt, you won't want to workout and that's a deal breaker.
