    Default Which sneaker

    I need new sneakers I currently have a pair of Nikes but am thinking of switching to Sketchers (mainly because my memory foam flip flops are so comfy) but would like to know which brand others recommend

    Depends what they're for? I have the Skechers gowalk2 which are like wearing a pair of socks but not supportive for exercise. I have a nice pair of asics for anything more than a gentle stroll. Currently have the asics kayano. Previously had the gt2160 most comfy supportive sneakers I've ever had. I got them when I started going to the gym and my feet were killing me and straight away they were better.

    I like my Nike free runs. If you aren't sure what to get, why not go to an athletes foot store and have them do the fit test thing where the computer analyses how you walk and recommends the best shoe? My DH did that and loves the pair he got as a result.

    Recommendations are pretty much redundant when it comes to runners for working out because the right pair for you will be different to the right pair for the next person. Gait, foot structure, arch height, the type of exercise, your weight etc will all affect the type that's best for you. Agree with the recommendation to find a store who specialise in fitting runners.

    If it's just for casual wear, sketchers are pretty damn comfortable. I also have a pair of Adidas Boost which I like but I never wear for exercise. I have Asics for that, fitted by a podiatrist who works at a small sports store near me.

    Same! Highly recommend getting fitted by a podiatrist if possible. That's how I got my first asics, the podiatrist checked my feet, toes, walk, jog etc and out of all the shoes in the shop he suggested about 3 that would suit! I went with the asics because my super large feet need a 10.5-11 😖
