Running with Nike (sorry adidas, I just did it)

Sort of nice knitting from Nike

Have been shopping for a new pair of running shoes for a few weeks after a mild slip while running at the KLCC Park during one of the weekends. 

I have flat foot, so arch support is crucial for great support as well as less injury.

Have been checking on adidas Malaysia online store but could not get anyone to reply to my questions – mainly whether the selected shoes are for flat feet.

Anyway, went to these outlets – Nike, adidas, New Balance and Asics in town, after trying few of them, I kind of like the Nike LunarGlide which is quite comfortable.  However, I may also thinking of getting the adizero, perhaps online later.

I have tested it this morning with a pair of arch support socks from adidas, the verdict, can feel the differences in the following:-

  • Less aching during the run, especially to the knees, in fact none at all!
  • Shoes hold my feet really well, maybe something to do with the knitting pattern
  • I could feel some sort of channeling of stress away from my legs while running, not sure how this happened, but it feels good

Ok, will continue to run with these shoes and share more later.
