New shoes bought yesterday at Sweatshop. My left knee was beginning to ache again so I knew my current Asics shoes must be wearing thin, which they were when you examine the depth of the blocks on the soles, so have now purchased some Brooks Adrenaline 15 GTS shoes.
My first proper pair of running shoes after having a gait analysis at Sweatshop about 2 1/2 years ago, I over pronate slightly, were Nike Structure 15's I have run over 700 Km in them, I purchased my Asics GT 1000 last December so they have only lasted 10 months covering about 560 Km so whilst I liked the lightness and comfort of this make they don't seem to have the longevity of other brands when running on pavements and paths which is the majority of my running. The description of the Brooks adrenaline shoes looks good for the support they provide and they seem more robust than either the Asics or Nike shoes I tried on in the store. The store manager has a pair each of the Nike Structure and Brooks Adrenaline for his running so I should be in good company. Not been out in them yet just wearing them around the house to get used to them, then plan a short run tomorrow followed by park run on Saturday morning.
Hoping they will be fine and that my knee will return to normal as it always has after I switch to new shoes.
PS I am doing squats and exercises to strengthen the muscles supporting my knees before anyone suggests this as I know we all look after each other on this wonderful forum.
