June 28,2013. Please Help Me with my new running shoes!!

Hi Everyone!

I’m in the hunt for new running shoes.

>>Please Comment down below with your favorite running shoes!!!!!!<<

I always used Nike, but this time I want to explore and trying something new. That may be change my performance and gave me a new experience when I’m out running.

My running shoes:

  • Nike Lunarglide 2: I used them for a few runs but now I only use them when I’m doing my workout at home or to going to a game.
  • Nike training Nike Free fit 2: My actual running shoes. I like this kind a sneakers because the fit on my feet are amazing. the only thing that worry me is that the sole is slim and when I run more than 2.00 miles my feet start to getting numb in the front part. I don’t know! If the slim sole that helps me to grab the pavement well, is affecting me for not having a good cushioning at the moment my feet impact the pavement.

What brand?

(Saucony, Mizuno, Asics (I already try them), Brooks, New Balance or Nike)
