I need new shoes

on Wednesday, July 5, 2006 at 9:27 PM

Did a recovery run this morning of 4 miles. About 10min/mile. HR below 150. Pretty cool out.
My right ankle was sore before the run, but stopped aching as soon as I starting running. It's sore now. Hopefully it's not sprained. Usually when I feel a twinge, I know that the support in my shoes (Brooks Adrenalines) is gone and I need to go shopping. I figure I got about 300 miles out of this pair. I like the Adrenalines cause their relatively light and good for racing, but I don't like that I have to replace them so often. I've read people getting 500 miles on their shoes. I think I'll try a different model this time but will probably go back to the Adrenaline in the fall.

I liked the Brooks Adrenaline a lot (they were wide in the forefoot which was good for my Taylor's bunions) but after a few pairs I had to switch seakers b/c the Brooks were bothering my achilles on one foot. I'm not sure where your ankle is hurting but wanted to mention my experience. Have a good week!

I wear the Brooks Adreneline as well and like them they have been very good to my feet and legs. But I agree I have about 300 miles on mine and they are looking more worn out then some of the shoes I have had in the past.....I think the are updating them this summer or fall.

Thanks for the feedback. I like the Adrenaline a lot and hope they don't change it too much. They're the lightest stability shoe that I feel give me enough support. I also have also looked at the Brooks axiom which is even lighter but it looks like it wouldn't hold up for even 200 miles.

I've run Asics GT series for 7 years - until I moved up to Gel Kayanos two months ago. They're great stability shoes. I don't have experience with Brooks Adrenalines. 300 sounds a bit low, you should be able to get at least 400 on a decent shoe.

I ran in the Gt-2090 a few years ago and probably got about 500 miles on those. I like them but found that I got the same support from the adrenalines but at a lower shoe weight. But I guess what you gain in lightness, you lose in durability. I'm actually thinking about buying the Asics GT-2110 this time around.
