The most important running gear is the running shoe. You get it wrong and you are doomed! Wrong running shoe equals, bad performance and risk of running injury.
For this year’s Nairobi marathon I decided to try out two types of shoes, Nike and Asics. I bought both and tested each on a 15K training run.
The Colour of the Running shoes
The Nike running shoe blue colour looked beautiful, the kind of shoe that turns eyes at the starting line. As for the Asics, the colour is ordinary white, nothing spectacular.
Performance of the Running Shoes
The Nike fitted nicely but when running it didn’t feel as good as the Asics. The Asics might look boring but I felt more comfortable running in it.
I have decided to wear Asics running shoe during 2008 Nairobi marathon.
