Are you a runner? Help!

I just bought two new pairs of running shoes and need your help in deciding which pair to keep. I'm not the type of person to wear a pair once and fall in love with the way they fit right away so it's hard for me to try something different. I just bought two different brands and would love some input.

[one] Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14

[two] Asics Gel Nimbus 15

I should probably mention that my biggest set-back as a runner is my ankles and shins. I over-pronate and get shin splints occasionally if I run a lot more than normal. My current pair of running shoes is the Asics Gel Nimbus (10 or 11) WITH super feet inserts.

Have you tried either of these shoes? Which do you prefer?

  1. I've never tried either shoe and my preference is minimal so I'm no help at all. As far as brands go I do love my Brooks Pure Flow. Thanks for linking up with Fitness Friday! Let us know what you decide :)

    1. Thanks for the input! I think I like the Brooks better myself =)

  2. I love the colors of the Asics but I would recommend you go to a running store where they can analyze your foot patterns and see if you over pronate or supinate and then make recommendations of shoes/brands based on that. Many places have a treadmill they have you get on and run for a minute or two to analyze it...super helpful because no runner is the same when it comes to shoes!

    1. thanks for the input!! I actually have been to a place where they watch you run on the treadmill and then get you a shoe for your needs..... I over-pronate and the guy put me in this pair of Nike's which I hated!!!! So now I'm under the impression that it's better for me just to buy a shoe myself and try it out --- the brooks above I bought because I heard it was a great running shoe and it said it was good for over-pronating.
