Tried and fell in love with the adiZero Tempos!

www.adidas.com.sg/running

Dexter.. Wonder if the adizero Tempo is suitable for Neutral Runner who just need cushion?? What is the Retail Price??

I use adidas Adistar Contol 4. Tried out Asics and Saucony but still find Adistar the better one - especially for its cushion.

Recently switched from Mizuno to Asics. Frankly speaking, I kinda prefer Mizuno more.

then why did you switch?

I'm currently running on Adidas Supernova Cushion 6, just bought a pair of New Balance 767. But I'm currently down with a cold so haven't got a chance to test it out :)

I think Nike Air Zoom Elite 2 is a rather versalite and good shoe. Responsive and light but at the same time with enough cushioning. Currently my favourite pair, alternating 3 pairs of them with not much problem.

Asics is rather gd , i enjoy their GT series with the wider toebox. The DS trainer series seems too light for a trainer, but not light enough for a racer, with a narrow toebox, i dun really like it.

Mizunos have a lasting problem for me. 2 pairs of them hadnt last more than 7mths. Comfortable though.

NB are gd for the price, but i think they are generally nt too responsive....

Hadnt tried adidas yet....

last week i was trying all the shoes i had.apparently i ran on 3 evenings.first session was on the adidas megabounce i got for gym.i ran on the treadmill and it provides a very responsive ride indeed.every stride i strode,it pushes and bounces slightly.i can fill the springy feeling of it,despite there is still the lack of cushioning absorption.it didnt work well as a full complete solid midesole shoe.but neither did i regretted on the shoe.it still works very well for running on treadmill and for gym training purpose.

i also ran on the mizuno creation 8.slightly heavier than the new balance shoe i had,but the cushioning and respnse was ultimate.i would give it a 9/10 rating.cushioning was good.and resposnive when i ran around the nieghbourhood.it was nice and the rubber outsole didnt show any sign of wearing since i ran on it for quite sometime.it's a pretty good shoe and i was thinking if my next shoe would be a wave rider 11 next year.haha.

I was using my army issued NB shoes (what model are they?) for running up till 6 months after i ORDed. Quite good cushioning imo.

Changed to pearl izumi pace after that to try out, suited my running style well since i pronate a lot on one foot (my legs arent equal length due to my spine), so a shoe with good cushioning was suitable for me.

always wanted to try out the asics gel kinsei though, although the price is scary :(

Currently with Asics, just love their cushioning. However i also have another brand in mind, which is Mizuno, i own a pair of Wave elixer, which is quite good w/ its light weight. I will be keen to try out Adidas running shoes soon, they look really sleek and cool.

I guess what's important is to choose the right shoes (model) for comfort rather than brand.

I feel brand is more related to preference, budget and image.

Been using mizuno wave nirvana 2. No complaints so far.

Probably getting a pair of wave rider 11 soon.

I started with ASICS, don seem to go wrong when you are not sure what type of shoe suit you. Then moved on to BROOKS... ok, good value shoe (not the army one, those are good for walking only).

Next stop, New Balance, excellent range for different foot type, good price, wide toe cap and no more bruised nails.

Mizuno Precision, Runners World give good review so decided to try it. Felt like running bare footed at the recent Sundown, very thin cusioning at the fore foot.

Now using Zoot....

Mizunos are pretty good so far. Hopefully it continues to keep me (and my feet) entertained.

newbie runner here, just signed up for couple of runs. Just bought Adidas Response Cushion 17 1 month ago. Pretty good and comfortable cushion for me. I'm thinking of getting a new balance shoe for rotation and i happen to get a 30% discount for the real run 2008.

Considering getting MR757 or MR1062. Wonder how do these 2 compare? or anyone can recommend a new balance cushioning shoe. I've neutral feet and after running i realise I am a forefoot/midfoot striker.

    • 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
