  1. As a cross-country runner in high school, ASICS was something we were all about! What a great company for running shoes. I still run, and recently got a pair of New Balance running shoes that have been really awesome, and seeing as they are a great company, I was surprised to see them not make the list. Thanks for the great information. The only thing I would have liked to see you cover was the price difference between the shoes you listed, but great job overall!

  2. Thank you for bringing this information about the running shoes i personally get interested on the adidas since i’m a adidas lover but for some reason i click on the page for the price and where can get it but page wasn’t found can you please tell me where to look for it and the price thank you.

  3. Thank you for this wonderful post, the post is straight forward, easy to comprehend and well detailed, thou I don’t engage in too much sporting activity, but I know the importance of running shoes. Among the listed shoes I think my favourite is Brooks Mens Adrenaline GTS 19, so many wonderful features about it. 

    1. Thanks so much for your nice words, really encouraging. Maybe you should try one, doing sports is very good (doesn’t have to  be extreme sports). One thing to note is the way several brands use technologies in making shoes now which makes life easy for the user

  4. Hi, It is amazing to see all the new technology the brands come up with to make the running shoes more comfortable and also to give one a safer run. Having good running shoes is so important. I have usually stuck to Nike or Adidas but will have a look at the other makes now.

    Am not a man but I like to wear a good shoe and my son is keen on jogging so will send him to look at this site.

    Thank you for doing this research.

    1. Please do show him and encourage him to leave his own comment too. Would love to know what he looks forward to when he thinks of jogging/ running shoes.

      And yes brands are competing real time now with several technology advancement in making shoes, area which was not given so much importance in the past. But it is actually good for the buyer we now have choose from the best.

  5. Thanks Ab, with Christmas and year end celebrations around the corner, I’m sure running shoes will be one of the things on every healthy conscious mind.  The accumulated calories will have to be burnt off early in the new year.  These running shoes look very comfortable but are there some for women as well?

    1. Thanks Juliet, quiet funny but you’re right.

      The calories have to go somewhere don’t they?, the body has to stay healthy. What a better way to start the year healthy and strong. 

      This generation, running shoes are now more about the health benefit and design than it used to be before now.

  6. I really like the Onemix. The con you gave isn’t really a con to me, it looks likes it’s going to tear apart but it won’t. That is perfectly to me. I like the colors. 

    I need new shoes to run and walk, and I do that à lot, so I need good ones. 

    I will show this to my wife and perhaps she can give it to me as a Christmas present, who knows.. 

    Thanks for sharing it. 

    1. Thanks for your comment Emmanuel

      It is a con because the fear of an expensive shoe looking that way can fear potential buyers away, but those that have successfully gotten their would enjoy it as it is. So a CON to the sellers and potential buyers and a PRO to those that have theirs already

      If you show her will it still be a surprise 🙂, maybe you show her this post Best Christmas Gifts for men 2018- A guide to what guys secretly want. then let her surprise you afterwards.

      Cheers.


  7. My son like to run, hike, bike, you name it, he does it.  I look at his ragged shoes the other day, and I thought, “I know I’ve gotten his presents already, but I’m adding running shoes to the pile.”  (He is 25 after all, but as every Mom likes to say, “He’s still MY baby.”  LOL).  So his name is Thor, which should tell you he is unique.  I named him appropriately, as he has more character than most.  He does suffer from some back pain, and I think it’s got to be his shoes.  I’m looking at the 

    ONEMIX Men’s Lightweight Running Shoes look like they are going to fit the bill.  They’re unique in their look, and they seem to have the quality I would want for him and, honestly, a super inexpensive price compared to what I’ve seen out there.  This is great for a last-minute thought.  I might not get it by Christmas, but that’s ok.  I think he’s going to love them the next time he ventures out.

    Thanks for writing up these choices.  I appreciate the research that went into this article.

    1. Thanks for the nice words and for sharing your thoughts.

      I’m sure he will appreciate a new pair of running shoes which has health benefits for it’s users. And I’m sure you will love the ONEMIX brand.

      Cheers 🙂🙂
