Which Brand Of Sneakers Do You Prefer?

Some women are pretty particular about the brand of sneaker they wear. Whether you choose because of the style, fit, comfort, activity level, or price, nothing beats a great pairs of kicks.




So, what's your favorite brand? Do you love Brooks because they have sneakers with great arch support? Or maybe you have really narrow feet, so New Balance sneaks fit you snug as a bug.




Perhaps you love Reebok because they have sneakers with extra cushioning in the heel. Or are you a Nike fan, loving that you can design your own shoe?




I'd love to know which brand you love and why, so tell me below.

My feet are flat so I wear whatever shoes I can find that give me enough room.

Are the Payless Champion sneakers any good for walking/running? I want to start running, but don't want to drop a lot of money on a sneaker that I might not use often when I'm just getting started. Once I get a good rhythm I might invest in something better ... but now I am on a budget for workout gear.

I go for weight, not brand. I hate a heavy waking shoe. I like to be literally "light on my feet." :JOG:

I like the New Balance, they're comfortable.

I like Nike for looks, but that's about all they're good for; they make the bottom of my feet hurt badly! I can only wear them for riding my bike. I like New Balance or Asics for running.

I love my Brooks Ariel's for walking & cross training but no running. I have really flat feet and I wear orthotics in my shoes. I also go up a half shoe size from my regular shoes. I go to this great running store in my area where they look at your feet & what you are using the shoes for to tell you what works best for you. They actually said that walkers are tougher on their shoes than runners. More ground contact or something? Seems to makes sense.

I've been fitted several times and hated 3 of out 4, even after a trial run, gait analysis, etc. I have horrible dancers feet and find nearly everything but Asics (for runners and trail shoes) pure evil (Nikes and Reebok being the WORST). Um, not to put too fine a point on it. Apparently most Asics are made for medium to low arches and medium to heavy frames and I'm none of those things but they accomodate my "six toes". I also add the super feet green insoles. The shoe dog tool on road runner sports suggested on only pair of Mizunas, I still need to try the brand at all.

I've got a pair of Mizunos, and I absolutely love them. They're very comfortable, they support my feet nicely, and are well built.

Keen sneaks are my fav as they allow me to run through puddles and on muddy trails uninterrupted. They are waterproof and durable enough to trail run, hike a mountain or play in a snowstorm. Warm, dry, and snug as a bug in a rug my feet are. Plus keen sneaks are so cute!

Nike shoes tend to run a little narrow, I love mine, I tried new balance but they fell apart on me.

I love my New Balance running shoes. They were recommended to be by a PT who owns a running shoe store. They are light weight and really breath. When I got them home I noticed that had the pink ribbon emblem on them so some of the proceeds go to fight breast cancer. I wear Avia cross trainers for step aerobics. Very white and very...unattractive, but oh so supportive.

After years of using Ryka, K-Swiss and Nike, I just bought a new pair of Adidas Supernova GCS shoes two weeks ago. I know it's been only two weeks, but I looove these shoes. I see my feet being very faithful to them from this point on.

My best friend used to work in the sneaker department at the Sports Authority and she told me that Nike are the worst for your feet, but I don't know for sure.

Nike shox fit so well - very very comfortable and last long! When running, they feel so light!

I am a total Nike girl -- no other brand fits my feet. I have wide feet and no arches at all, but my Nikes always fit well.

I totally hit new balance but meant Asics. Duh. Anyway, I'm new to running and have had foot surgeries in the past. My Asics hold my feet perfect without rubbing my toes and scars the wrong way.

different brands for different things- Reebok for kickboxing Avias for running Nikes for lifting Rykas for aerobics

Asics 2100 series! They are the least obtrusive-feeling shoes I've tried yet.

My running shoes are Mizunos, because I have very narrow heels and those are the only brand so far that fits in the heel. My cross-trainers, though, are Saucony. Reebok and Nike don't fit me. They're built very straight, and my feet always feel like they curve inward when I'm wearing them. Hello, discomfort.

I always thought Mizunos were for volleyball only, so I was surprised when they turned out to be EXCELLENT running shoes. I've tried Asics, Nike, New Balance, and Brooks, and these are the best I've had. They're lightweight and they really breathe too.

The one time i bought new balance they hurt my feet. I have narrow feet two, although I HATE HATE HATE my toes feeling scrunched up so I buy adidas. I love buying shoes and looking at shoes, but when it comes to wearing them...i take them off as soon as possible! lmao _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?
