There are so many trainers/running shoes/sneakers out there sometimes it’s hard to work out which is right for you, so I’m concentrating on the two that I use every day because they offer support, cushioning and are excellent for running, walking and anything to do with the gym.
As someone who has had problems with heel and back I’ve learnt that there are two Nike trainers for me – Nike Air Zoom Pegasus and Nike Vomero and I don’t bother to look elsewhere because whichever version I wear they are always very comfortable, cushioned and supportive.
The reason these two have become my all time favourites is down to the cushioning, which is excellent in both. I also use special insoles for extra arch support – Foot Active Casual are very good.
The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus – in different guises - has been around for about 30 years and still continues as Nike’s ‘bread and butter’ trainer, because it is so good. And now Nike have brought it out in a multitude of colours. It’s cushioned and springy and is such a comfortable ride you’ll never want to take yours off.
Nike Vomero is a slightly more cushioned trainer, and usually a slightly more expensive shoe although when it comes to discounts it depends on what stock the store has so it’s worth having a browse. As I said I’m not a runner so the subtle differences between the Pegasus and the Vomero are lost on me as both offer the cushioning and support I’m after.
Where to find for less – it’s not necessary to buy the latest version and colour of Nike’s trainers as they’re released – the differences aren’t that noticeable unless you’re one of those people who just has to have the very latest. If you’re willing to go back a season you’ll frequently find them at lower prices. RunnersNeed is a very good place to check out for lower prices as is Sarenza.
If you want the absolute latest in version and colour then you need to check out the Nike UK Store where you’ll find the widest choice of all and some very good discounts at sale time.
