I really like running but I don't have the right shoes I think because my ankle hurts badly while and after a run.
I have another question too. Can I use running shoes for my workouts too or should I buy extra training shoes ?
Thank you guys that you take the time to read this.
Keep foucsed and strong.
Nike makes great running shoes if you're willing to shell out. I really wanted the Nike free run 5.0+ but they're like $100. They come in all sorts of colors and are super light.
If you run outside and train in a gym you might want to get separate pairs of shoes, but if you hit the treadmill, you should be fine :)
I always use asics they are the best to me♥ love em!
I have a pair of adidas and new balance that I use for running shoes. I wear high top shoes like chucks and reeboks for the gym bc I strength train also.
avia, there very light and comfortable
First off, most people run the wrong way. Our natural way as human beings is to run barefoot. Since this is most uncomfortable, there are a few ways to get around it. First, you can start gently by running with any comfy tennis shoe that fits properly & start with short distances running on the balls of your feet. The second is to purchase a "barefoot running" shoe ( there are many out there these days after Vibram came out with the Five finger toe shoes). One reason your ankles are hurting & will continue to hurt is because of the impact you cause on your joints (ankles, knees, & hips) with running the way you have for so long. With"barefoot running" you will slowly turn back the impact on your joints & allow then to heal.
Caution: do NOT just jump into barefoot running without slowly increasing your distances. If you do, you will not be able to walk for about a week because you will be so sore.
Brands to consider are Brooks, Vibram Five Fingers (running), Adidas has a pair I believe now. Stay away from the big names like Nike or even some others bc they don't focus on quality, just cosmetics. The important thing is that they fit tightly & comfortably around your feet. Go try a bunch on & order over internet for a better deal (zappos or shoes.com).
Some people swear by Minamilist shoes like the nike's one (can't remember its name) & vibram 5 fingers. Others on tight budgets swear with cheap flat converse with a medical gel sole padding which u can find in drug stores (at least in my country they do) or buy it online. The padding might be a little bit expensive, but the good thing is, The shoes will wear off but not the padding
For other workouts, u can simply wear the shoes that u r comfortable in. I have pair of reebok's train tone & they are picking dust. They costed me 100+$ . They hurt my knees badly when I tried to use them in weightlifting & running.
Btw I weightlift barefoot!!!
Asics have some good ones
