I REALLY need some new running shoes, especially now that I'm actually running. Lack of cushioning is becoming more apparent.

I remembered this thread, searched for it, and found this:

OK, so after perusing the shoe finder, the REI site (useful!) and Zappos (good reviews, though they don't carry Nike), I think I've narrowed it down to the Nike Air Max Moto or the Nike Air Pegasus.

First problem -- they only come in one color.

Second problem -- the colors are both godawful. I've always gone with Bulls colors for basketball shoes and running shoes, it's my thing -- red, black, white. Now OSU's colors are red, white, gray (and of course black gets in there too), that's cool. These are light grey with chartreuse highlights (ICK) and gray with boring blue. :-(

I guess fashion has to take a back seat to function sometimes.


Guess what color the 2007 Air Pegasus comes in? Red and white! Yee-haw.

Gonna get me my first new running shoes of the 21st century...

I just recently switched to Brooks. Love them. This is the model I got. click Even for non-runners, like me, I can't recommend highly enough going to a good running store and having your feet and gate analyzed.

I would say.. All it's depending on where you shop, you could end up staring at a wall full of running shoes with phrases like "motion control," "stability," or "minimalist." having no idea where to begin. Instead of trying to choose a shoe on your own, it's always samrt to visit a specialty running store where you can find the best running shoes for your based on your unique foot and gait... Smile

Bought a pair of Brooks Dyad 8s at Marathon Sports yesterday.

It used to be that I would monitor the shelves of shoe outlets for wide
sneakers that wouldn't rub my hammer toes or my bunion. Call it
frugality.

But after an injury and a visit to the foot doctor, I got my last pair of
runners from a store with knowledgeable staff. It was worth it, even
though I paid about twice what I would have paid at the outlet.

On a recommendation from my youngest son and after seeing them
featured on a local TV show, I tried Marathon Sports. I got excellent
help from the salesperson. He checked out my gait and stance and
brought out an armful of shoe boxes. The third pair was the winner.

Today I'm jogging with Two-Mile Mike. We'll see whether these shoes
are as good as I think they are.

@George,
So far, so good.

It was 68 and sunny. The trees are just beginning to show their autumn
colors. Our pace was slow and comfortable. My shoes felt extremely
cushiony, but that's probably because I ran my last pair into the ground.
A nice run -- the only hard part was going back inside.
