  • Hi! I loved your video! I really wanted to buy the adidas edge bounce in my country but they don’t sell it here. Could you suggest a similar adidas shoe to the edge bounce? I need that type of shoe for hiit, jump rope and sometimes short runs/sprints. Many thanks!

  • @Beverley: you might want to review Inov-8 F-Lite 235 v3 for a more balanced shoe for stability and agility… its seems to get better reviews in the Gym

  • Big tip not mentioned: always buy 1 size up from your normal shoes for running. Your feet actually expand from the impact. Especially if you’re having toenails go black or an unusual amount of blisters, your size is probably too small. This is also to help prevent bunions and dancer’s foot.

  • This is really outdated advice and there’s zero scientific evidence to back it up. In fact, a recent study found that having a gait analysis done prior to purchase was significantly correlated to increased injury rates. It seems the scientific community has agreed on arch height and pronation being poorly correlated to injury, so looking forward to the day the advice catches up with the research.

  • any proper running shoe review that does not include Hokas’ somewhere in the mix is fraudulent. This is not an expert review simply an average everyday joe.

  • I find Drop makes a big difference as well as the energy return of the shoe. I personally prefer a low drop as it helps me lending on the front of the foot rather than the heel.

  • One thing not covered is that a mid-foot contact practised runner normally needs 1/2 size larger shoe to accommodate any to expansion during distance runs 10k +.

  • Thanks for the awesome video this helps to know what shoes I can use for running or walking long distance… anyways we subscribed I hope we can get one back ��

  • Running shoes to do Sqauts?
    Never advisable. Better to go barefoot or a flat show like converse. Or lifting shoes.
    Never, ever with cushioned soles as they skew the bodies biomechanics

  • I’ve currently got some Nike zoom elite 9 shoes and I can only have two runners. I am looking for that second pair of shoes that will compliment my elite 9s well. What do you think I should get? Thanks

  • How about warn outside heel to center shoes case?
    I am having injury issue my under ancle + stiff under foot. It that because how I run?????

  • Its hard to decide for my first pair of running shoes ever when you talk so good about all the shoes. Everyone keep telling me to buy asics so I guess I’ll go with those. I just started running 2 months ago and I can now do 5 miles, but really hard to do in a pair of air max

  • Hey Jeff because of you I run in Adidas Ultraboost. I saw one of your reviews on this shoe and purchased them I haven’t looked back. Thank you!

  • Could anyone help me out? I never use to get shin splints when I was always running in great shape. Then I went through some health problems and had to drop working out all together for 2 years I put on 100 pounds it was bad. Now I have lost 35 pounds but I still can’t do anything running/jumping rope anything for more then maybe 2 minutes before my shins hurt unbelievably bad for the rest of the day. I noticed shoes with giant bottoms that are a little harder help the shin pain stay away. Could you recommend any shoes like that I could get?

  • This is good. Hopefully this covered what I really need to know. It really worries me to spend money on a mistake…
    For me its very tough to run because my shoes will just stomp into the ground. From that, just the impact of it going to the ground feels like it challenges whatever holds my leg muscles together. I’ve often questioned if I am even running correctly but it seems like I probably do know how and its just the stupid shoes I’ve worn over the years. (Another unpleasant foot problem is when you go in a certain position and a pain locks in where there is no stopping it even if you get out of those positions. The experience is it rises in pain. It doesn’t hit you with its worst at the beginning stage. I’ve had this problem since the 7th or 6th grade.:P )
    If this is a legit video, old people in their 50s and 60s (my parents) need to get into this. Good bang for your buck and helps your health of course. I think this foot education should get more exposure. No one should have any trouble getting this basic exercise. People need to jog.
    Lol. And I’ll plan a podiatrist appointment.

  • I shattered my ankle and I dont have alot of movement in it anymore:\ can any1 point me in the right direction for a good walking pair of shoes with a little more of an arch in the back?

  • And im still lost on what all this means. I can’t determine what type of foot I have so I cant figure out what shoe is best for my feet.

  • I love the PureFlows but am wondering if they’re a quality shoe. Thinking of going tot he Hoka Cliftons having absolutely loved trial runs in them but a shoe expert friend has said they’re a terrible shoe. Any thoughts on either?
    Thanks

  • I wish there was a research guy at GTN. The evidence tells us, although not strongly, that matching shoes to foot type is foolish, also that motion control is a fad that is passing and may lead to more injuries depending on foot type.What matters is shoe weight, cadence and heel drop depending on the structures needed to be offloaded, i.e low drops will place more load through the ankle complex. A specialised running shop is you best bet with someone who can analyse your gait on a treadmill however as they know it often comes down to comfort so please avoid places the make you walk over pressure plates and fit shoes based on your foot type-there is no evidence to support this practice.Reputable sources for running include Dr Richard Willy and Dr Simon Bartold  https://www.bartoldbiomechanics.com/articles

  • Thank you for this post,I have been struggling on and off with Achilles for a while and I have decided to come out of stability trainers into a more natural trainer and to walk barefoot more…fingers crossed i will be back out there running soon

  • Great video nice information about the shoes, overpronation. For a beginner do not go by the brand of the shoe, try different makes to find the one the fits you best. Also how often are you planing to run few days or weekly are you training for a race or just fitness. Also beginners should not run in racing flat unless you develop the experience to wear them, try a lightweight trainers if you want to use them to run races and they will not cause any issues with your feet.

  • So should I go for arch support or not? How to figure out which shoes have arch support? How to choose the correct heel hight? The talk is a bit all over the place.

  • This is a very nice reviews, you do really done your research mate!

    But IMHO, there is no such thing as a “best running shoe”, Like a lot of performance products, running shoes are a very personal product. Every runner has a different body type, running gait (biomechanical movement), daily/weekly distance (workload), conditioning, and speed goals. Furthermore, runners have different preferences in terms of the type of terrain they like to run on.

    The question you should be asking is: “What is the best running shoe for me?” and the answer will depend on a combination of the factors mentioned above.

    There are dozens of running shoe brands with excellent reputations: Nike, Adidas, Asics, Mizuno, Newton, Altra, Hoka One One, Brooks, Puma, Merrell, Salomon, and many more.

    What I recommend for beginning runners is to go to a local running store and have them analyze your gait (running mechanics). Try on a range of different running shoe models. Here is what you should be paying very close attention to:

    Level of cushioning: Most runners prefer a medium amount of cushion with a softer feel however, some runners prefer less cushion for shorter distances and for speed. More cushion usually means lower impact on each stride, but generally lower speed (in terms of your running pace).

    Level of stability: Some shoes are marketed as “stability” shoes, which means that they will help runners who are known as “pronators” with corrective structure. Pronators’ feet hit the ground with more pressure on the inside (instep) of the foot than the outside, and therefore, can experience some instability and occasional pain due to the repeated impact with the ankle joint at that angle. Stability shoes are made to counteract pronation and reduce the awkwardness of the angle at which the runner’s foot and ankle bend on impact. Other shoes are meant for “neutral” runners, whose feet hit the ground with more pressure/weight on the outside of the feet (towards the pinky toe), which is considered more normal (neutral). Neutral shoes will be far less corrective than stability shoes.

    Heel-to-toe drop: You’ll notice that some running shoes have very thick heel cushioning, and a sloping effect towards the toe. Many running shoes are designed this way to promote a forward “rolling” effect as the runner strides, and this is created by the net difference in the heel height to the toe height (for example, a 25mm heel height and 15mm toe height = 10mm heel-to-toe drop). Some runners prefer a large heel to toe differential… others prefer a “flatter” running shoe in which the heel is at roughly the same height as the toe, because they say it promotes a more “natural” running motion. This is really up to the runner’s preferences.

    Shape of the shoe: Some shoes are wider than others in certain areas. If you have wide feet, you’ll hate narrower shoe models and vice versa. Make sure you pay attention to the shoe shape especially in the toe area.

    Material used in the upper: Some shoes have very rigid materials in the upper (the section of the shoe holding the foot down… with the laces). Others have more flexible mesh. If you want more flexibility, you should probably choose a shoe with more mesh or fabric in the upper. If you want more durability, leather and other synthetic materials should be your choice.

    Of course, the other main consideration is the choice between Road running shoes (flatter sole) or Trail running shoes (rugged soles with more tread/lugs to help with off road traction).

    In summary, there is no such thing as the “best running shoe” only “the best running shoe for you.” Hopefully I’ve provided enough guidance here to get you started on the path to finding that shoe.

    Keeping the above aspects, and the brand factor ( for example, Nike, shown above ) in mind, I had prepared few of website giving you a deep reviews for the best running shoes. You can look through it before you hit the store.

  • I wear Xero shoes(minimalist shoes) and have worn them for over 9 months now. My feet and ankles feel stronger, I wear them all the time but lately I have noticed my left leg/knee I injured(shattered tiba, torn acl) nearly 10 years ago has been in a lot of pain and very stiff. Should I be wearing something with more support for work and training or is this unrelated?

  • Hi, I have wear on the outside of the heel and inside of the toe/mid-foot region on both feet. I always thought this was sign of overpronation, but maybe I’m wrong???? Any help is much appreciated.

  • Guys Brooks is always the best when you find the right model available. Asics is also top class. Nike is just a hyped up teenage shoe. Have nothing to do with running.

  • I just started exercising, right now I am doing more fast pace walking and doing short bursts of running every now and then. Would you recommend the same shoes? I bought a pair of Nikes and they really start to hurt the the arch in my left foot after about a mile

  • i didnt have a local running store just the usual sports shops where the assistants dont know a thing so i did the wet cardboard test as it was the next best thing lol.

  • I’m training and preparing myself for the military meaning I’m doing a lot of long runs (10k, 8 miles, 10 miles) but I’m also doing a lot of shorter faster 1.5 mile runs and 5ks. Would you recommend I get myself two different pairs of trainers? One for the long and slow and one for the short and fast?

  • I know that a 8-12mm heel to toe drop is most suitable for me. When I’ve dropped below that I’ve ended up with injury.
    My big tip is to find out what drop is suitable for you.

  • Hey I m having problem in my heel( plantar fasciitis) I am using Nike epic react flyknit 2 and Nike zoom pegasus, Nike cruzone, all are comfortable but react epic is the best of all till now my query is I want to buy shoe in asics and Brooks please recommend me I am having a store job so walking and standing for 10-12 hours so please recommend me the shoes

  • I was going to get some salomon speedcross 4 cs but i found the sizing to be a hair off for my feet. I ended up getting Adidas Kanadia TR7. It was tighter in the right places and looser in the right places. A bit less grip and a bit more expensive but it fit better so it was an easy choice. They are both amazing shoes that work well. As stated in the video, everyone has different feet so try a few.

  • If you’re serious about running -Mizuno
    Asics
    If you’re not
    -Everything else
    Two marathons and countless half marathons, 10k and 5k runs under my belt tried Brooks, Nike, Reebok, Adidas, and even S.W.A.T. tactical boots for shots and giggles and nothing is comfortable in the long run like Asics and Mizuno for around 80$

  • Brooks Levitate 1 Speed short runs

    ASICS Kayano 24 Stability
    UA Charged Bandit 3 overall good value
    Brooks Ghost 11 overall good
    Nike Pegasus 35 versiate

  • I’ve tried several different types of running shoes, I do every time I go to get a new pair. Just to see what I like the best, and every time I’ve always went to the Nike Elite. The place I go to get shoes will watch you walk and run to see if you’re neutral, supinate or pronate. Then they fit you for the size you need, they’ll also let you walk around the store and run around in the parking lot to see what you like the best. The Nike Elite 8, which is the previous model, was more of a built up trainer. Now the Elite 9 is built more like a race flat, it’s still by far my favorite running shoe that I’ve tried

  • What about shape of the shoe?
    The real eye opener for me was when I went to a specialist shop and found out that I need wide toe boxes (Topo shoes are great in my case).

    Another topic missing in the video is heel to toe drop.

  • Great vidio! Thank you, im about to run a marathon next month and im using the ghost 11 i do think they are great shoes, i will try other 2 shoes on your list so thank u again

  • Any good quality low budget neutral shoes recommendation? i am new to running been watching your videos from start and the app is also useful.

  • I’m almost flat footed but have actually strengthened an arch into my feet cause by focus training to get up towards my toe and pretend I’m a marionette puppet being pulled up by his strings. Any who I a question about the wear pattern gaitting. My wear pattern used to go diagonally across the shoe from outside heel to inside big toe. Thoughts?

  • Thanks for this video. It is super informative. As a running people often ask me about which shoes I like. The info on Asics helping people who over pronate is an awesome tip! I’m relatively new to You Tubing, but enjoy finding channels that offer helpful information like mine. Thanks!

  • What do you suggest for someone who works as a delivery driver for Amazon FedEx or ups I’m working for Amazon this year and I need some for the cold and rain that well give support while I can Sprint. I was thinking maybe the “Asics gel kayano 24”

  • Love watching GTN… There’s a ‘but’ here. There’s many theories on what constitutes an appropriate shoe, many propagated by shoe manufacturers. Certainly, there’s limited evidence to suggest that specific shoe technologies prevent injuries. The ‘wrong’ shoe may cause injury though. Key for me is a) comfort & fit, and b) ‘feel’. If you’re a bit quicker, then weight is certainly important too.

  • Great info and advise for those that run in shoes. I have just bought shoes for my 9year old twins who are starting to join me in some of my short runs.

  • Vibram fivefinger v-runs for life.
    There’s some absolute bollox in this video, 300-400 miles per pair! What the hell, my current v runs have over 2500 miles on them and are only just showing signs of too much sole wear, they weigh 140g each at size 46 (11.5 UK) and are super comfy for my usual 8-20km per day. I’m a supernator though, the majority of my wear is under the little toe metatarsal, overpronators probably wouldn’t be able to run as much in such mininal shoes.

  • Looking for shoes for my group fitness classes. As an instructor I go through them so fast & am trying to find a pair that will hold up longer than 3 mo!

  • dude. thank you and the team so much for this channel. it’s awesome. I fell in love with running again recently but hurt my knee immediately because I foolishly ran 4.1 miles after being inactive for about 4 years (10 min/mile pace). I was pretty bummed out but started looking for resources to help me start back up right again. Im healed now and am on a solid training regimen working towards a 17min 5k in about 3 months or so. Your channel is proving to be one of the best sources of info and tips by far.

  • hey bud!
    which are the shoes you both were wearing I your proposal run?! lol my wife really likes the color of the ones your girl was wearing! thanks man!

  • Working at a running shoe store, I thought this would be a fairly simple explanation of running shoes. Actually a very good basic introduction to different types of running shoes and how to begin narrowing down a shoe for you

  • My fav run shoes are from On Running, feels weird at first but when you get used to it, it’s amazing and you’ll hop on the On-Running train

  • Hey GTN,

    Still love your videos 😉
    Got a question for you: I’m 90kg (200 lbs), 187cm (6’2”), running 4-6 times a week 10-20ks each session. I have a stability Asics Noosa Tri 10 for track workouts which I love (actually I love Asics shoes allaround). I’m looking for a new pair of cushioned shoes for my longer, not that fast sessions. Do you think the Asics GT 2000 have enough cushion for me, or do I recommended to go with the Kayanos or even try a Hoka?

    thanks 😉

  • Do trail shoes work for running on the road as well? If I will be mostly running on a road but sometimes on a trail, should I go for trail shoes to avoid buying 2 pairs?

  • Love it. More of that please!!!
    I’d like you to be my personal trainer. I wonder what you think about running/walking in barefoot shoes/sandals. Cheers!

  • Do you have any suggestions for flat foot running. My foot arch is really low, would like to k on any recommendations to get me running longer. Thanks!

  • that kind of content is the reason people still get severe hip-knee-foot issues.
    Shoes won’t fix or support your weaknesses especially for long run
    if you can’t go barefoot/minimalist shoes don’t compensate with sophisticated shoes.

  • Is it possible that each foot behaves differently? My left foot seems to supinate, while my right is neutral. I use a couple of running shoes like Puma (Comet) and Nike (Flex Experience RN 7), but my favourite is the New Balance 574 Encap, since it’s the most comfortable.

  • it is really funny how measures the weights of the less cushioned shoe and the more cushioned shoe. the cushoined shoe is much bigger than the less cushioned shoe. they are not the same size! on eis around size 9 (42) the other is around 45(11,5)! of course the bigger will way weigh more:)

  • I don’t think I fit this mold. Any time I try a lighter shoe with less cushion I get shin splints immediately, I’ll stick with my soft shoes for race day.

  • Altra shoes <3. i love them. You have to train your feet first, but when you do that, you will experence the best running in your life...

  • Video says some people prefer more cushioned shoes, like a marathoh shoe, for 5 k races. As far as I know, most marathon shoes are thin and less cushioned. But i gues this is so for pro-marathon runners, right?
