To all those experienced runners out there, what sneakers do you recommend for distance running?
I’m buying new sneakers to try and alleviate pain that appears to be shinsplints, so quality cushioning seems to be paramount.
Regarding training, I’m currently doing a simple 2 mile route and am completing it in about 18-20 minutes. My plan is to increase that pace to about 15 minutes and then increase the distance.
My current goals are simply to increase cardiovascular fitness and lower my body fat levels, but I’m considering running a marathon (or at least the half) in January, so my training may make a sharp turn toward long distance this fall…
While Nike’s are great, I’d like to hear a bit about some of the other hardcore running brands…(I know a lot of guys who do a lot of running think Nike is crap.) That said, I’m considering the Nike TurbOZ because they look nice and purport to be light and feature the SHOX cushioning…opinions? I’m also wondering about the traditional, classic grey New Balance (991?), of which my impression is that it is a great running shoe.
