    hi guys,

    Bought a new pair of running shoes two weeks ago, Asics.
    Not really convinced as I used Adidas for a long time ( the ones with foam) now I'm running on a gel and I still need to get used to it.

    What trainers would you advice?

    the first day I used them I had a painful lower back, could also be the result of sleeping on a couch with a slight hang over. ^_^

    Cheers.

    Vibram five fingers! I want to try a pair of them out, they look mad (gloves for your feet basically)
    I use Adidas shoes atm, when i wear these out i'm going to get a pair of Nikes (Lunar Glides), as i've heard nothing but good reviews about them.
    It might be worth trying to get a to a specialist running shop and have them reccomend you a pair, as they look at how your foot falls when you run and reccomend shoes based on that, and as you (potentially) are getting back back from the ones you're in atm, it might be worth it.

    Idd, might do that in couple of days, still have the old ones but they are almost falling apart.

    It depends on your foot, etc. If you go online a lot of brands (adidas, puma, etc...) will give you shoe recomendations based on your pronation, width or whatever.
    I really like adidas runners. Some of the lightest shoes I've ever had. I also wore a pair of under armour running shoes...I really liked them.
    People get really hung up on brands or technical reviews. Honestly just find something that's comfortable and go with it.

    I wasn't really talking about brands just about the getting use to running on gel.
    I love Adidas as well as they have superb light trainers. Will pop by the running store and see how they can help me.
