It’s time for new running shoes, as mine are a bit snug from having had a baby and they’re getting old. Right now, I have NB 992’s. Before these, I had NB 991’s (same thing, earlier model). And before that, when I was running long runs (marathon training and actual marathon), I had a pair of Asics can’t remember the model number, but I paid an arm and a leg for them and they were worth every penny. So, do you have any particular pair of running shoes that you think are way better than any others? Should I just get another pair of 992’s (I’m not running more than 5 miles at a time)? TIA!Linda
I have finally found my shoe. I to run with my toes pointed outwards my feet roll inward (if you can imagine that!) I now wear Brooks GTS. They have support under my arches to lift the insides of my feet to match the of the outside, are wide. I was having terrible knee issues after running until I found these. suggest finding a sporting goods store that can personalize your running shoes. I hear they study your feet, the way you walk, and check your footprint to find you the right fit. We don’t have anyplace here that does that, but I would pay to have that done if I could. Good shoes can make a huge difference on how well you run.
I wear Brooks GTS Adrenaline too. I have flat feet that roll inward too (overpronation) . . but I hate motion control shoes, so these work well for me. They provide arch support for me but do are not as heavy and as rigid as motion control shoes (which are what I really should wear). I’m on my second pair them. always try to go to a running store to get my shoes like the pp said. They will look at your feet closely and most even have a little mini track in the store so they can watch how you run. LOL . . . I end up being training for new employees a lot of time because my feet are so flat. I have the honor of being the worst overpronator one running store ever saw.
I have Saucony Hurricane’s. They were EXPENSIVE $130!!! I did a gait analysis at this running store called The Running Store. They laced me up in my running shoes that I was wearing at the time and put me on the treadmill. The treadmill had a camera at the base and the associate had me jog at a comfortable pace for about like 30 seconds. Then, he showed me frame by frame what my foot does as I hit the ground and come off. LOL! I felt like I could really spoil myself with my running shoes since it’s the one thing that I just LOVE doing for myself. My advice would be to find a store that does gait analysis so you can figure out what shoe fits your foot best! 🙂
