Running Trainers

Found 19th Jul 2017
I need a pair of trainers for running each day. I'm looking at Adidas and the styles of either Mana Bounce or Lite Racer.

Any recommendations please? I'm new to this! Thanks

Nike have good sale on their website
It depends on your running style, brands are meaningless, are you neutral, do you over pronate or under pronate. If you are running everyday you need to get gait analysis and the right trainers, go to a running shop.

Also you sound like you are new to running, doing it everyday will cause injury as a beginner.
Saucony is a very good brand for running. Like running on air. They have high absorption, the more expensive ones.
Nike Air Max are the best. Don't buy into the asics and saucony rubbish- Nike Air Max are the strongest and most comfortable. They are expensive, and not primarily designed for running I suppose, but they will protect your knees, ankles and ligaments better than any other brand.
They will deliver strength to your upper body (that inferior trainers will take way when you run in them) that will increase your power and endurance.
You won't hear this everywhere, but it's true. I've ran thousands of miles for years in all types and brands of trainers. Nike Air Max are light years ahead of ANY other trainer..

Also there's so many variations of Air Max, which ones do you suggest!

My husband used to buy nike air max to run. He used to run 9 to 10 miles every day. But they stopped being good running shoes so he had to switch to saucony, which are more expensive but are better shoes for serious running.

You'd need to replace every 10 to 12 months as they'll lose their buoyancy. Air Max 90 are as close to the original as you will get. Newer designs (of Air Max) are not the same- despite having lighter materials and more ergonomic, aerodynamic designs.
I suppose if it ain't broke don't fix it!
Listen, if you decide to buy another pair, fair enough. But you may at some point buy Air Max, and then you will see the difference with experience.
Good luck in your new venture!
Get as much air as deeply into your lungs as you can!
Seriously don't go and buy Nike Air Max's! I doubt any serious runner uses them, they are heavy for a start. They are fashion trainers, same as the two you mentioned above. Running shoes look like running shoes not something you are going to wear to the pub. For that money get yourself down a proper running shop and get them to test how you run and recommend a shoe.

They must love seeing you come along.
You need to go and try some different brands on in store. Nike for example do not fit my feet well and so are uncomfortable for sports. Asics have the best fit for my foot shape so I always buy those.

It's not about which brand is best it's about which one gives your feet the correct support.
Go to a specialised running shop and get your feet checked and try some trainers on. Trainers are so personal and fit differently to each person. I've loads loads of brands over the years, Adidas, Asics, Nike, Brooks, On, Scott, Saucony and loads of others but I've never seen a competitive or club runner start a race in Nike Air Max.

For what it's worth, trainers don't need to cost the earth and you'll get approx 350-750 miles for them depending on the shoe choice and your running style. My Adidas road shoe is about £60 and I get through 1-2 pairs a year. My trail shoes have a harder live as they are always being smashed on rocks, flints and getting soaked and drying so I generally use 2 pairs a year.

this. anyone thinking of running more than a mile once a year should go to a running shop and get their gait tested to get the correct type of running shoes for their running style in order to give proper support.

And remember if they get dirty you can always wash them in the washing machine. No matter what your wife says

Do not buy Nike Air Max to run! Worst piece of advice I've ever seen on here.

Go to a running shop and get fitted for the right shoe for your running style. That is the only option.
Get some cheap discounted New Balance running trainers, buy 2 pairs when they're on offer.
Buy these for running click. NB trainers normally come 1/2 size smaller so don't forget to factor that in if you decide to buy a pair.
Posters telling you to go get your gait checked out are giving the best advice here. Feet are pretty complex things, for instance I need a neutral shoe with a big toe-box, this rules out a lot of trainers, the best people to advise you on which shoe's best for your feet is someone who not only sees a lot of feet, but sees a lot of shoes!

Pick a local running shop (not sports direct) with a good range of brands and they should steer you right.

Posters giving a specific shoe are giving you bad advice. It's like insisting someone to buy a Ford S-Max knowing only that they want a car for driving...

Decathlon do foot analysis for free as far as I know. You don't have to buy top brand neither, you better replace them often depending on the number of miles you are going to run. I stopped buying adidas and nike a long time ago and switch to New Balance because they work for me (Saucony and Asics are good too). Once you know the type of trainers you need (supportive, neutral etc) check online for last year or 2 years ago lines and you should get them cheaper
