    reccomend me shoes

    Post by amherst_xc on Thu Oct 23, 2008 8:21 pm

    so my season is slowly coming to an end with my last race on sunday, which also means after my slow 2 weeks i will start running again and need to get new shoes soooo.....


    i need a new pair:)

    looking for
    -light weight trainer, yet still has SOME cushioning
    -not 100 dollars
    -would be found at a specialty running store, not online
    -looks good;)

    the last 2 pairs of shoes i had were..
    - saucony grid sinisters 2 ( i ran in them for track, i LOVED them.)
    - brooks adrenaline GTS 8 ( ran in the all summer and through cross, liked them a lot but found them a LITTLE heavy)

    who really cares about trainers? just buy them from a brand you like, and make sure they aren't too heavy or too light.

    spikes are different though.

    The Brooks GTS 8s are a bit heavy but all in all are pretty good. I say go with the Brooks Ghost or Defyance.

    Why don't you run with shoes like mine? I use two pairs of shoes. Asics Gel-Oberon (which has lasted me pretty long) and Nike Zoom Streak.

    i was about to make a sarcastic comment, but that would only be denying the fact that the victorys are an orasm in a shoe and i want to do it with them too.


    BUT were talking about the lunar trainers. Not victories.
