Running Shoe Link-UP



1. What brand and style are your favorite running shoes?

Asics Gel Kanyo 18

2. Why are they your favorite?

I have an old ACL injury, also a torn meniscus..neither of these were ever fixed with surgery {though they needed to be} because they didn't do surgery like that if you weren't done growing back in the day...well it turns out I was done growing and they should have done the flipping surgery! I also have a sciatic nerve issue, AND shin splints due to those injuries. I have gone through a TON of running shoes, the a sic kanyo is the ONLY one that stopped my shin splints.

3. Have you had any bad experiences with other brands? Which ones do you avoid?

I've always loved nike, I have narrow heels and they are prefect. BUT my shins are a hellish burning fire when I run in them. The Nike Free Waffle are my favorite comfort wise, but they are not for running that's for sure!

4. Do you have more than one pair of running shoes for different types of workouts?

I wear my nike free waffles, sambas, or other flatter shoes for weight training & body pump.

For running, my ascis.

For turbofire...I am barefoot.

5. Have you ever been fit for a shoe by a specialist? Did you find this helpful?

Yes, that's how I decided to buy the Asics. They were a perfect fit, and stopped my shin splints, so I would say VERY helpful!


  1. Those running specialist make a world of difference! Love the purple too! Happy Tuesday girl!

  2. I have got to find a specialist to fit my foot! There is such a big difference between the Asics and Nike. Those are the two I have, and I prefer to run in the asics, they have to much more support and hug my entire foot...the Nike's I feel like my foot just sloshes around aand that could get ugly injury wise.

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. After reading the links today on the running shoes I think I've finally decided to see a running specialist. I cannot decide if I should go for the Brooks, Asics or something else, so I'm going to let someone else decide. Love you blog, btw!
