Thread: good running shoes

    Default Re: good running shoes

    my humble suggestions is to go nike women and see wat suits u

    i've been in nikes shoes for more than 10 years of running...i would say they are quite good

    i used 2 pairs of shoes to train...alternating them which both lasted abt 1.5 years

    good tractions, light (depends on which one u get) and design also not bad

    for all you know...you just walked past me!
    Oh, your office is near there too?

    Yup, Asics is not cheap but it's the support & cushioning is very good. Mizuno is slightly cheaper and offers support & cushioning which are almost as good as the Asics.

    Next you may want to consider is New Balance. Think there is a boutique in Suntec.

    to prevent any loss of use due to wear and tear or manufacturing fault. buy at least 3 extras.

    so in total 5 x (5) x 3 = 75 pairs approximate

    nice. bracketing and burst sia!

    Check out www.sgrunners.com

    They dish out good advice on shoes in that forum.

    My view is shoes are very important for runners. There are different type of shoes for different foot type (flat foot, high arch, neutral etc.). If you choose the wrong type, you'll have injury once your ramp up your running mileage.

    Every brand has different models. And each models serve different foot type. So it doesn't mean if you have flat foot you have to go for brooks etc.

    In my view, the way you run (how your feet strike the ground) plays a more impt part in choosing the type of shoes. So go to those shops that have those experts that can analyze your foot strike while you run on the threadmill. Eg. runninglab at funan, and a few shops at novena square provide those kind of services. Again, check out the sgrunners site.

    Lastly, the design of the shoe is the least impt factor in choosing the shoe.

    Ah, I'm too late. Actually, a good running shoe is the one that fits you most. Different brands suit different feet shapes.

    Good that you like your new Asics

    Sorry to OT,

    you might want to supplement your running/training with some Glucosamine tablets,
    it helps to replenish the worn and torn in your knee.

    I used to do a lot high intensive running and neglect the food supplement,
    until I run into trouble with my knee.
    Now I take Glucosamine regularly, and I have no problem with my knee any more.

    BTW, I used to wear New Balance shoes.

    i'm not a pro runner.

    but i am very determine to run at least 3 times a week.
    i've also signed up a gym package with personal trainer.

    i hope the above brands make size 5.
    i always have problems getting shoes that fits.
    there is a mizuno at MS also? Its on the same level. Can't go wrong with asics. Light and provide good support. Its definitely cheaper to get running shoes at queensway if you're in the area.

    U are right. I just ask them, do you sell product that is 'no good'? However, having said that, I was too served by salestaff who was honest and helpful. I once failed to listen to them(I thought they were promoting another product) and ended up facing the consequences.

    So do some homework before buying.

    Those Glucosamine tablets can be purchased at Public hospitals at a fraction of the cost as compare to private clinic.
