Running Shoes?
Posted April 18th, 2013 - 3:25 am by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
Does anyone know where in BA can I get a good pair of running shoes with personal assesment?

I started running, I am loving it but now having feet problem. I really need to get a new pair that fits but I don´t know how to choose one.

Please, someone?

Thanks so much!

I was investigating and I just bought my perfect pair! Depends what kind of foot you have, your weight and how much you run. Always I was running with normal or bad shoes and now I'm gonna start with these new ones. We are in similar situation. Now I'm going to sleep but you can send a private message to speak tomorrow! Best, Nico.

Thank God that I am not alone. The thing is that now I have my thigh muscle injured and blisters because of not wearing the appropriate running shoe.
I need to find out which brand Nike, Adidas or Reebok makes the best ones depending on what I need.

Hello, Carolina.

I'm not an expert in this matter but can I tell you is that what you need is to be sure the shoes can absorb the impact when you run. That means that shoes with a very slim sole (those shoes became popular because they were very cheap compared to the good ones) are the worst since all the impact is absorb by your shoe and your knee.

I bought some intermedium (and closer to the cheapest) at an Adidas shop and they work excellent for me being heavy, (+80 kilos) so I'm pretty sure they will work perfect with you :)

Those brands like Adidas and Nike between others have lines of shoes dedicated to running. There are brands decidated exclusively to running but they barely import in Argentina.

I hope you find this info useful :)

Good luck!

In my opinion, expensive running shoes are a rip off!

To combat muscle injuries, I think stretching is very important, massages, and taking it slow at first before increasing the amount of running you do.

A normal pair of sneakers will do, that's what I use. Sometimes I run barefoot for a change (many running coaches and researches recommend doing a bit of barefoot running once a week, to strengthen foot muscles).
