For working out I love Nike Shox ( they’re nice looking as well as great running shoes. They have lots of support and there are different types for different fitness activities (running, walking, etc.). For serious runners, I reccomend Asics ( which are less about looks, but GREAT shoes for working out. For wearing every day I love Converse ( and Vans (, but they have very little support so I like to use Dr. Scholl’s gel arch supports ( in them.

My favorite shoes for running are Nike Shox. They are great just for running. When walking in them or wearing them for a long time, they tend to hurt my heals.

I love Vans loafer-style sneakers. They come in lots of colors and patterns and they are slip-on.

I wear Asics Gel Cumulus–they support my high arches better than any running shoes I’ve tried. (Addidas is also good… my soccer cleats feel like comfy house slippers!)

You should NEVER wear your running shoes for regular activities. Walking wears them in a pattern inconsitent with the way you run, and can lead to increased joint pain while working out. Always best to have two pairs–catch a buy one get one half off sale, and you’ll save money AND they will both last longer! I always buy a pair of cute New Balance sneaker for everyday wear.

I love working out in my Nike Shoxx. I own several pairs of them and they are great for my knee injury. If I’m just hanging out and want to go casual, I love Pumas! They are cute and comfortable.

i love my asics there’s absoultly amazing, they give great support and cushioning

Jen on

I love my custom designed Nike Shox for running…they’re cute and supportive. For just hanging out I like Pumas.

I’m with most of the women on here…I wear both Nike Shox and Asics. Like someone just stated, Nike Shox are great looking with good support, but for those serious about running, you can’t go wrong with Asics. They are so comfortable and have great cushion/support. I love both Nike Shox and Asics. As for the everyday sneaker, I wear Nike and Sketchers. I don’t wear sneakers all that often, if I do, it’s mainly when I’m working out or if I change from my heals into sneakers (only if my feet hurt and when I’m driving home from work).

Jamie on

i like vans and pumas

NEVER buy work out shoes based on appearance. Shoes are designed for not only our feet and activity but more importantly our step. Road Runners catalog used to have a great selection and easy to read chart to determine your shoes needs. I was a condiotning runner in my off season from swimming and I ran track. I found Asics and New Balance to not only fit the best, they weigh less making your steps less heavy and they LAST. Nike makes crap products- they fall alpart. Sorry to be so blunt about them.
