How do you tell the difference in trainers for running and those that are just for fashion(i.e. for day to day use)..

And also how do u tell the difference between trainers for girls and those for boys..

    I hear boots are in fashion. Seriously, I see so many people wearing boots now, I don't feel that individual anymore. Time to switch to ballet shoes.

    Basically if they're sold in "High Street" stores (size?, Schuh, Office, Foot Locker, JJB, JD etc.) they're not really made for running. Even the new Nike/adidas/Puma releases that you see that advertise themselves as being a revolution in running technology (eg Nike Shox) aren't actually used for that purpose by proper runners. For running shoes go to a specialist sports shop - the top 3 brands (not necessarily in this order) are probably Asics, New Balance and Nike.

    Technically very good running shoes.

    Which Asics do you recommend for running on road and for people with flat feet?

    Saucony and NB make the best running shoes IMO.

    I am a bit of a sneaker collector and when I have to run in a pair of Air Max 90's (like across the road) I think they feel really good - better in fact than any of my New Balance.

    This is my signature.

    Try a specialist running shop for decent running shoes, some places video you running on a treadmill and suggest running shoes based on your form.

    Asics
    Saucony
    New balance
    Brookes

    ...all specialise in good running shoes.

    Spot on. For training I use either boots, a cross trainer or specialist lifting boots (rarely). For out and about any old ****.

    Try and find a specialist running shop, dont under any circumstances trust the advice of a saturday kid in your local JJB etc.
    Theres an excellent running shop near me called "Running Bear" the first time i went in here the guy looked me up and down and said, hmm you're 12 stone and a size 10 shoe? He was spot on, then had me running up and down the shop outside to check my gait, advised me that I was overpronating a little and reccommended some trainers according to this.

    SHOX FOR RUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a pair and used them ONCE for am cardio, what a mistake. You might as well cut some pavement slabs in the shape of your foot, tie them on your feet and go for run, even then will it be slightly more comfortable!

    What about the Nike trainers which you can bend back and forth without ruining the sole or material on it? Anyone tried those for running, if so, how did you feet feel afterwards?
