Adidas vs Nike vs New Balance

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, May 23, 2008 | Published in


After a friend read my blog yesterday on the subject of working out, she asked what shoes I wear for jogging in the park. Well, what she really meant was which "brand" I wear.

To be honest, I really do not know which brand is the best. The famous ones are Nike, Adidas, Asics and New Balance just to name a few. I guess the most important thing is to choose one which is comfortable and suitable for your feet. Maybe that's why different brands are suitable for different people.

I am currently wearing a New Balance running shoe for my jogging sessions in the parks. So far, I like it. It's comfortable, and gave me good support. Here's the photo.

It may not be very stylish looking but for me, it's OK. I don't need a very stylish shoe for jogging. As long as it gives me good support and can last long, that's good enough for me!

Actually, why I ended up buying New Balance is because I like that they help me choose the right shoes for my feet. I bought this shoes at 1 Utama New Balance shop (it's at the New Wing - can't remember whether it's 1st or 2nd floor). The owner of the shop was very helpful. He measured my feet and told me I am flat- footed as opposed to arch- footed. It seemed that if you are flat- footed, you cannot wear shoes meant for arch- footed people, and vice versa.

I don't remember those sales people at Adidas and Nike ever gave me such advice. They just let you choose your own shoes. Although New Balance shoes are not cheap, neither are Adidas or Nike's.

So I would definitely recommend that New Balance shop in 1 Utama if you are looking for a good pair of running shoes. What's more, if you are member of Fitness First gym (and also other famous gyms - can't remember which ones), you are given a 20% discount. If you are a member of the Pacesetter's Athletic Club, a running club in Malaysia, you get to buy at a whopping 30% discount!

    I'd check mainly the reviews of the people who used the product in order to make a choice. I also believe that brand doesn't matter :).
