Buh-Bye, Gym! Tips For Transitioning From the Treadmill to the Road
Saved 12/08/09 to RunningSugar

What's Your Favorite Sneaker Brand?

I usually choose sneakers based on fit, style, and price, but my heart remains true to a few brands I fell in love with when I first started running, including New Balance, Nike, and Saucony. If you had to choose just one brand of sneaker, which would be your fave?

I used to run in Asics but now am a Mizuno lover.

I have always ran in Asics or Nike, but I just bought my first pair of Mizunos a couple weeks ago. They are quickly becoming the best running shoes I've owned, far better than any Nikes I've ran with!

Mizuno's and thinking about switching to Nike to save some money on the next pair as knee pain and shin splints are a big issue for me. Love that I have that multiple pain issues in my early 20s

I've had adidas, asics, saucony and nike and my favorite for both comfort and ability to hold wear and tear is definitely asics. My favorite for distance running by far.

I have been wearing the Asics 2130 series since Jan and will only change when they upgrade. I think I might try the new 2150 s

I feel like some cultish hipster because I love my Ryka's. They're the only brand I've used in the past 4 years.

New Balance tops my list.

New Balance--They're reasonably priced and they work the best for me because I overpronate a LOT.

I'm a Saucony girl - for me they work way better than Nike, Adidas or New Balance when it comes to preventing shin splints. I'm not a regular runner yet so I haven't tried any of the more expensive brands.

I'm on my first pair of Brooks & am so in love with them.

Usually, Asics or Saucony, but I recently got the NIke LunarGlide (in purple!), and am in LOVE with them. I never bought Nikes before because they didn't ever fit my feet as well as Asics or Saucony. I don't know that I'm permanently "on the Nike side", but these are awesome. :)

I chose New Balance since I love my NB running shoes...but my cross trainers are Under Armour - and I adore them!

I love asics! I would say for moderate runnings they are perfect! Brooks are a little more sturdy for hard core runners, they seem to hold up longer.

I wanted Asics to work so badly for me, I bought 2 pairs and they felt comfortable when I put them on, but they gave me blisters in like 3 places, and a small cyst on the top of my tendon(that went away when I switched back to Brooks). I love Brooks, they are super comfortable, but I feel like for how expensive they are, they wear down a bit faster than they should. So I buy 3 pairs at a time on overstock or sierra trading post whenever there is a sale.

I've worn Asics before but my main brand is the always reliable, Nike.

My whole life I was a die hard Nike fan....I just switched over to Asics.

I have been a fan of Asics for years now, they are the only running shoe I will wear because there is never any breaking in period and they fit perfectly.

Nike. I have wide feet and the Nike shoes are the most comfortable I have found for my feet. They also offer great support which helps my knees.

I was quite satisfied with Adidas, but bought Salomon trail running shoes for this winter and I love them even more.
