I'm a total beginner who wants to lose weight through running around my local area. An article in the Daily Mail (hate the paper to be honest, but the article made sense) rated the Asics Gel Nimbus as the best running shoes for a beginner like me. I have no idea whether that's right, but the article is here:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1089076/The-good-trainer-guide-Running-cheap-way-fit--wrong-shoes-expensive-mistake.html
...and this was by far the cheapest deal for the shoes which best suited me.
AirMesh and Synthetic Leather Upper with 3m Reflective.
Asymmetrical Lacing, Biomorphic fit and Personal Heel Fit combine to ensure the perfect fit, improved comfort, reduced injury risk and enhanced performance.
I.G.S Impact guidance system allows the foot to perform in a natural manner and enhance natural gait.
The Solyte Midsole provides exceptionally light midsole with excellent bounce back and durability, Rearfoot and Forefoot Gel offers shock absorption and the Space trusstic allows more efficient foot function.
The shoe also features a Gender specific midfoot design. AHARplus heel reduces excessive wear on the heel. Removable duo density moulded ortholite sockliner.
