I tried them on and they were comfortable, but strange because of the midstrike thing. But I am worried about stress on my knee, until my body adjusts.
I have the sketchers go run shoes and omg they made the biggest difference they are so comfortable I can go on forever I have a knee problem as well and they helped with that also cept now I have to watch I don't overdo my miles so my knee hurts. I love those shoes I bought 2 pair

I had some nikes I bought before those and they gave me terrible blisters after a few miles it was **** the sketchers feel like heaven on my feet after that they don't rub on your feet cuz they are so soft and flexible like a glove just love them make sure u get the perfect size I tried them on and walked a while in the store to make sure I had the perfect one

Thanks so much! I really liked them, but have never tried something on like them before. Comfortable, but weird at the same time. LOL I wasn't sure if they would feel great at first, but then become painful later.

I completely agree! Even if you don't buy one from there and want to come home to look for better deals online, going to a running store can give you some great info when it comes to shoes! Everyone't feet are so different, different shoes would better for some than others. It also depends on the kind of running you're doing! They're going to be your best source of information! Good luck!

Really the best thing for running or walking is to head to a running store. There should be someone there that will watch you walk with your shoes off--to see if your feet pronate to one side or the other. Typically this is the culprit for knee pain and other pain when you walk or run. Shoes are very important. You can also get more information on the internet about foot pronation--what to do--and what type of shoes you should be wearing. It's really a good idea to try on a lot of shoes to see which ones will work for you.

When buying running or walking shoes always buy a half size bigger as this prevents the toes from rubbing on the shoe...

Very good point--I too buy exercise (aerobic) shoes 1/2 size larger than what I normally wear--and I go a full size bigger with hiking boots--as I wear thick wool socks when doing that.

Black toe-nails and pain are the common denominator of using too small of a shoe.

Ilene thank you for this advise I will be doing that. I went yesteday to buy some which I tried wearing today and they didnt work. I think I will be going back for some New Balance I bought some Ascis(spelling?) because they claim to have. Gel cushion but I think the new balance were much more lighter which I think wiuld be easier to walk in

I like the gel cushion too--but I just go buy those cheap--clear flexible insoles you can get at Walmart--Walgreens and even my grocery store sells them-- (that are really made for heels and pumps) and put them in my shoes. They're so thin that you don't have to take out the existing insole. I just love them anyway.

Just got fitted for the very first time! I recommend that anyone starting to jog should go through the experience. I've been wearing size 8 1/2 shoes for years. I found out tonight, i have two different size feet. Although I now feel like bigfoot, my runnning shoes feel perfect! I can't wait to run tomorrow.
