I've narrowed down the choice to
Asics Cumulus 11
Adidas Supernova Glide
Nike Pegasus 26
All three feel OK on my feet, and all cost about the same price. Does
anyone have any opinions, positive or negative, about these shoes?
store has a 60-day return policy, so if a pair doesn't work out, I can
return it and try another pair,
They will actually let you wear them for 60 days and then let you return
them or do they give you 60 days to get around to trying them and
deciding? If the first case, sounds like a great store.
so I'm not too worried about getting a
"wrong" pair, but I do hope that my first choice is my final choice.)
It's close to impossible to assume what works for others will work for
you . You can collect wars stories(data) but their experiences may not
match yours. Many years back I was wearing a model that most hated. I
bought about 10 pairs and loved them. I've also experienced the reverse,
everyone loved them and I found they sucked.
May I suggest that once you find the shoe that you like, try to buy
enough pairs to get you through you next significant race(s). You don't
want to try to find a new pair too close to a race. Murphy's law - the
next model is out and they don't have your size in the old model. And if
they tell you the new model is the same or better - the check is also
in the mail.
I just bought three pairs of shoes to get me through my spring races. I
also have a new pair still in the box. I race and train in the same
model so have only one brand/model to contend with. I bought two of the
old model that I know work to cover my race, and one of new pair of the
following model. I will work in the new model down the line so I know
one way or another I can move to it. If I time it right I buy most of my
shoes as the new model comes out, very cheaply. I paid $65 for the old
and $99 for the new. I go through 4-6 pairs a year.
Yes Dot, I'm staying with the Brooks GTS9 with the new 10's. I'm not
going back to the Asics until I see if they removed the brick midsole
they added to the 2140's in the 50's.
