Anonymous said: I'm in the market for new running shoes. I'm looking for a neutral shoe with a lot of cushioning. I've tried several, and I know Asics are too narrow in the toe box and New Balances just don't feel right for me. I was wondering if you or any of your followers can recommend something new for me to try. I live too far from any specialty running store to feasibly go to one again.
Asics and New Ballance would have been the shoes I would have suggested. If anyone else has any ideas, post on this message 8)
My Asics have the best cushioning. I wear the Asics GT 2000 (probably more of a stability shoe than a neutral shoe). You’re right, they can be a little narrow, and I ended up with half a black toenail because of that. I have a pair of Saucony’s that have more room in the toe box, but I feel like they have less cushioning. A lot of people love Brooks, but the pair I have doesn’t have a ton of cushioning and I only wear them to the gym, I don’t like wearing them out running.
It really depends on the model of shoe within the brand. Good luck!
