New Shoes!

I also just bought a new pair of running shoes which is always exciting for a runner.  I got the new Nike Skylon 11, which is a show based off of the Nike Free.  The main difference with this shoes is that it is a very neutral show or is does not provide a lot of support.  

More runners have been going to this more neutral shoes or minimalist shoes because they actually help to strengthen the foot and allow you to have a more natural running form.  The way they work is the sections are allowed to move independently which allows more flexibility in the shoe which is a more natural feel and does not restrict the foot as much.  I have done one easy workout in them, 5 miler on the treadmill and so far I love em. But the real test will be my first 20 miler in them.  They are very light weight and feel like there is nothing there, which is a good thing.

  1. Today while I was surfing the Internet, I came across several articles talking about choosing the perfect sports shoes. I was particularly interested in basket ball shoes that offer optimal support and cushioning and are light weight and flexible. What I found is that Zoom Kobe IV is an ideal option as it offers all the above and is also one of the top rated in the Nike brand.

    So if you are on a serious look out for a professional basket ball sports wear, maybe you can try this brand as you would definitely want your shoes to last long. Also, the brand plays an important role when buying good shoes as it would not be good if your shoes fall apart while you are playing and you end up hurting yourself. So make sure you are get yourself the best brand and also that can offer you all that you need for playing comfortably.

    So if you have those old shoes, then its time you look out for a replacement and enjoy more comfort.
