    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)

    For running shoes? I recommend Asics all the way.

    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.

    Right behind you, but i'll be gone before you fini
    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.

    Asics Nimbus or Kayano (spelling may be wrong)

    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).
