ASICS Gel-Kayano

5.0 / 5.0

I'm a heavy guy, I need to do a lot of walking. I spent a lot of money buying shoes of all different brands only to find out that they weren't the right shoe for me. I finally bought the Asics Gel-Kayano 17 They are perfect ! I was so happy with these shoes that I decided to buy another pair to keep at the office.

Pros: lightweight, good arch support, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable

Brooks Beast

5.0 / 5.0

I have now used the Brooks Beast for the past 7 years and no other shoe has come close to it. In this time I only had 2 pairs lasting around 3 and a bit years each. I did all my sport in them, indoor cricket, athletics, touch footy and training for rugby league. It is great for my wider foot and the support is second to none. Great for gym, running, walking and everyday use.

Pros: durable, comfortable, good looking

New Balance 993

5.0 / 5.0

I've bought several pair of New Balances before but the 993 are by far the most comfortable ones. The medium width is perfect for a normal size foot. I found the shoe that I will purchase over and over again.

Pros: lightweight, comfortable, good cushioning

Nike Air Max Tailwind

4.5 / 5.0

What an awesome pair of shoes! They are very comfortable, feel padded and snug inside and lightweight. Smooth ride, cannot complain. Im not sure why another person put a neg comment about these, they are by far one of the best pair of Nike's. I hope they continue this style, very happy

ASICS Gel-Nimbus

4.3 / 5.0

I just started running when my bike got a flat and I didn't want to change it for some reason ( avid cyclist, averaged 50-60 miles a day). I just started running in some old Asics and I went to a running store and they suggested I get the Nimbus 12. fresh out of the box, i ran 16.5 miles when before I would run about 8 miles and have knee pain. no pain up to 22 miles. I love these shoes and have ordered my 3rd pair when I haven't used my second pair yet. I'm in love with running and I owe it to this shoes!

Pros: comfortable, good cushioning, breathable
