My only choice shifted from Adidas to Mizuno now, cos it more suit the Asian's feet.

:Party:

I've been using Asics since the day I turned "serious" abt running. But recently I bought my 1st pair of Mizuno.. I think my preferred brand is gradually shifting from Asics to Mizuno...

I almost switch to Adidas from Asics. especially the latest Super Nova Control (stability) and Rotterdam (light weight trainer) are awsome. I dont say Asics is no good. But now I found some poor quality with several pairs.

adidas produces good racing flat i guess.i've been wearing the adizero for about half a year,wear it only for races eg pacesetter 30km and the upcoming bi-s.it is both light and responsive.i guess it is on par with most other brands.

once i went to their boutique at suntec, to my amazement, i saw and held the lightest pair i ever saw,its paper light.its almost zero cushion at a mere 99g as told by one of the staff.

Realrunner,

Which brand of trail running shoes are U wearing now?

Blurmax's Blog

While I was drafting, I realized you are based in HK. So I need to amend my comments

In fact I do not wear trail running shoes as I run only in Singapore. Since those trails are relatively well maintained and less rocky.

Once I wrote in another topic, when I went to Whistler, Canada in summer time, I ran along rugged, rocky, steep and even bear walking trails with ordinary running shoes. But my shoes worn out because of sharp rocks. In such situation, definitely you need heavy duty trail shoes. My favorite in this line is Salomon or Montrail since it was durable, less slippery, and harder mid sole, which enables you feel more stable. In any types, unfortuantely I do not like Nike. actually its outsole of every nike's traill line is very slippery (I don know WHY?). and the sole is easily come off.

I have a hunch that most people that voted have not seriously tested all the brands...

Personally I have not tested Asics :P becos it is so *&%#(* expensive

But I have tried, Adidas, Nike and New Balance so far...

I think the top of the range shoe for each brand will be comparable in terms of performance lah

I've been using Asics all the while. Their Gel Nimbus series have been doing quite good job for me. Thought I find it a bit too hot shoe for Singapore climate. I've also tried New Balance 1024 and 1061 but they only bring width 2E locally which is way too wide for my narrow feet. Mizono are out of picture, they just can't handle my 90kg worth of goodiness :rolleyes:

Recently I've discovered Saucony, their top of the range seems to be pretty good! And it comes at a fraction of Asics price. Now testing it for tear&wear over long distances and if it performs well I'll be switching over! :cheers:

I recently bought my first mizuno persuit less than 2mths ago, ran less than 200km with it. to my surprise its already worn..at the heel outer edge (slight pronation). my previous shoe is asic GT2100, ran over a year, (about >1200km) and has the same wear at the heel.

is anyone using mizuno persuit and have the same problem? or its just a bad batch i got. disappointed with this pair. :Sigh:

I am using Asics Kayano 12 and Saucony Triumph 4. I used the Asics Kayano for marathon events. As for the Saucony Triumph 4, I used it for short and training. Both pairs make me run crazy.

Cheers !

i'm eagerly awaiting your experience with saucony, simply because asics is getting too expensive for me to buy, and i'm contemplating getting a pair of sauconys.

i don't EVER want to use a worn-out shoe again.

you try Omni 6 moderate. which is close to asics 2000 series. actually last week i tried several models including this, it is good, in terms of snug fit and stability. since i need a bit lighter and responsive one for serious training (e.g. speed work and race pace run), I bought Nike Air zoom elite. but if I choose one for everyday, easy running, I will pick this model.

Using the right socks will be beneficial.

You can try to get WrightSocks.

Because it is a double layered socks, it should prevent blisters.

    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...

    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
