My First Running Shoes

I don't own a running shoe. I just borrow from my  Dad.

Sometimes, I envy the shoes of my jogging mates because they have shoes that  are really built for running.

So yesterday, I asked Sweetpea to come with me to help me choose and buy my first ever running shoes.

I am not a brand conscious person, but when it comes to sporting shoes, I really trust Nike.

I have nothing against  my old Reebok, but it seems to me that this new Nike  LunarFly+2 just offers more cushion and support. It has a low-profile, lightweight design built for comfort and to generally be adequate for most paces. The upper forefoot is my favorite. It is said to be built with synthetic leather and a breathable mesh support in order to stay sturdy and cool.

I had the opportunity to try them out this morning and I realized how light it is compared with my old Reebok. The mid-portion of the shoes is very soft and responsive. The only minor thing that I somewhat do not like so far is the rear heel sole, which is a bit lumpy for my taste. I bought it for 3,995Php at The Olympic Village, Gateway. I think it's a bit expensive (given the fact that I survive on a meager measly allowance) compared with other similarly situated shoes, but - oh well, that's the consequences of buying goods with brands.

Cheerio to daily running! :D

check mo Brooks and NBs bro. they have similar prized shoes and madami ka options- be it cushioning, motion control or stability. good shoe design though, mainit lang sa paa for me ang Nikes. lets go! lagyan na ng mileage yan!

the design looks "FAST". mabigat ba?i-log mo kilometers mo bro, usually after 300kms check mo na ilalim. depende rin kung heel striker ka o mid-foot striker. congrats!

@cmus sabi sa mga forums, 200kms lang daw ang life span nito, before it stats to behave funny. Mejo mabilis din daw mapudpod, and hindi recommended sa mga track runners. Hindi siya talaga "performance specialty" shoes, it's designed for the average runner. You can probably say, "jack of all trades."

@khant, Mas maganda yung selections sa women's section, ang dami mapagpipilian na colors. Tas narealise ko, oo nga pala, for girls, it's style over comfort (performance) ang basehan nila bumili. :D

nice looking pair. the price should be fair enough as it's the quality you're really purchasing.

yes there's a reason why they're called running shoes LOL. and i thought before na for advertisement's sake lang ang selling point na yun.
