Hey,

I would like to buy Nike running shoes with the Nike+ (Apple) sensor
for jogging (also treadmills).

But i've bad knees and sometimes problems with my achilles tendon... :-(

Can you please recommend a shoe with great shock absorption?

...Air Zoom Moire, Shox turbo, Air Max,...etc

THANKS

Weird you would post a question regarding running/jogging in a tennis forum, but anyways... I'd suggest you look into Asics Kayanos. They are supposed to be highly recommended for people with feet and leg issues. I'm thinking of getting a pair myself... although, technically, I'm fine with my Saucony's for now.

New Balance 992 (or 991 which is an older model). My 60-year old dad runs 4-5 miles every morning and swears by them.

Is nike+ a must for you?. Then I would go to the Air Max 180. If its not, try the Air max 360, Those are by far the best running shoes I´ve ever tried. A lot more comfortable than the 180 (more expensive though)

I suggest ASICS and get a $3 running wallet that you tie into your laces, stick the sensor in there. it works fine even if it moves around a bit in there.

Have you by chance happened to try the Adidas Megabounce+ ? If anyone has, please let me know what you thought of it.

I recommend the Brooks Adrenalines. A large part of our almost state-level HS cross country team wore them. Really solid, lasted us through summer and the better part of the season. With an average of 40 miles a week, we needed solid shoes.

Those are the ones I wear.


P.S. You don't need nike shoes for the adapter. My mom and older sister got an AnyShoe adapter, and it works for them just fine.

I still havent, but they seem to be really good, hopefully I will get a pair soon. IMO another great running shoe is the Puma Complete Taranis, really comfortable and stable.

I highly recommend the above for excellent cushioning. I started running about 3+ years ago on some NB shoes and didn't know how bad they were until my 1st pair of Nimbus. I truly enjoy running in my Asics and would not consider anything else. Hope this helps.

Back then, I used running shoes for running and tennis, but then my knees started to hurt. If your knees hurt a lot, try using tennis shoes for most of your running activities.

My results were extremely dramatic. A day after using the tennis shoes, I felt great in running and tennis. But as my knees healed, I used running shoes to get more distance (though I still use tennis shoes if my knees hurt).
