Saying "Asics" is like asking, "What's better a Toyota Camry or Chevy?"



Well, I didn't think people actually ran in anything other than the gel models so yeah. The gel models.

Frees are terrible for running

Frees aren't a bad shoe. I just prefer asics for running. Like poopsonsaban said, people have different preferences.

Nike

Well my opinion doesnt matter cause I prefer them because they just look better than asics and I'm not a runner but they are comfy

Never been to fleet feet, the shoes varsity recommended still give me blisters. They may be great for my stride, but they fit like shite.

Go to a shoe store that actually knows how to tell you which type of shoes you need. Usually this will involve you taking your socks and shoes off, dipping your feet in water, and walking a few yards on brown paper to see your stride pattern and where you settle weight on your feet.

There are 3 different types of shoes for the 3 types of foot mechanics. Each brand has different models for different foot types.

In Lafayette there is Tri Running. Look for somewhere that will tell you the type of shoe you need, then you can get those types from anywhere. I know Academy lists it on the slider in front of the shelf model.

I don't know any real runners that use Nike


Go check out the starting line at a PRO distance or sprint event, you'll see some Nikes. They run in shoes that are PAID for, and pay them to run in. Those guys can run in sandals. As for the rest of us, who don't get paid to run, well we run in these;

re: Nike vs asics. Better running shoe?


I've trained for three marathons using both Nike and Asics shoes. I sustained some sort of injury every time in the Nike Lunar Glide shoe once distances got long and never in the Asics Nimbus shoe so now I just buy Asics. Learned the hard way by trial and error.

Everyone is different though and has a different running style so I'd go to a legit running store and have them look at you run on a treadmill and then give you a few options.
