What is your favorite Brand for Running Shoes?

posted over 3 years ago | Report

I need to get new running shoes and was looking for some guidance from all of you. What brands are your favorites, and why? I have a pair of Nike+ but was looking for something with a better fit. Suggestions?

  • I have been running in Asics for probably the last five pairs, but my new shoes are Mizuno. I mainly switched because GoRun does not carry Asics and I was ready to get a lighter shoe now that I have lost weight. My advice is to try out some different shoes at GoRun and get their advice on shoes.

  • I would agree with Blaine, that trying on shoes and getting advice at GoRun would be a good idea. I got some Brooks Ravina's there and I like them probably the best of any shoe that was recommended to me at a store, but the my favorite shoe of all is still Nike Free. You can't get them around here at all. Have to order them and even then they are hard to find but they are the most comfortable for me. Unfortunately everyone is different and runs different and is looking for something unique for themselves so it's are to give recommendations. The thing that I did was to read a lot about different shoes and reviews of shoes. You can google for running shoe reviews and find lot of places that describe the difference in shoes and what runners like or dislike.

    Thanks Blaine. I had planned on going over to GoRun, just hadn't got over there yet. Just wanted to see what everyone's opinion was.

    Thanks Don... I have done a lot of research online and just wanted to see what you guys wear. You all have been running a lot longer than I have, so I value your input. I planned on going by GoRun to see what their recommendation is. Thanks again!
