Ever since I started working out I have always incorporated running into my routine. Whether it be 10 minutes or 30 minutes I always add a run into my cardiovascular routine. I feel running helps me feel more energized throughout the day and not to mention burn a ton of calories!!!
The shoes that I have been using for almost 5-7 years now is the Asics brand. I love this shoe. I used to use new balance, but they did not give me as much support and I used to get blisters on my ankles. Asics, knock on wood, as provided me support throughout my running and other workout routines.
These are the Asics brands I have used:
Asics Gel Nimbus 14
Asics Gel Nimbus 12
Asics Gel Keyano 18
If you are a runner definitely try these shoes out! The Gel Keyano 18 is the new one and it is expensive, but it is worth it. Depending how much you run the shoes will actually last 6-9 months. I would recommend getting an insert that matches your cushioning needs. It helps the shoe fit better and actually last longer. When you get an insert sometimes you can just replace the insert and the shoe itself will last you another 3-6 months.
