Running Shoes for Women that Really Make a Difference

Here’s the thing, I have severe knee issues. So bad, that I have problems walking up and down my own stairs of my house.

That’s what years of being a fitness instructor and even more years of skiing semi-pro can do to you.

For the past 1.5 years, instead of continuing my fitness passion, I’ve been busy practicing my sitting-at-my-computer exercise too concerned if I do anything it will make my knees hurt even more.

One thing I have been doing, while feeling sorry for myself, is researching different shoes to offset the pain. I mean, come on, we’re in the age of fitness where every ailment can be worked with.

And that’s kind of how I stumbled upon – ASICS

I’ve heard of them before, but until you really NEED to get good shoes, did I actually do research.

Since it’s hard to tell how great they work off their website, I decided to go nuts and get three different shoes to try out.

1. The Roadhawk FF2

No idea where that name came from – What I loved most about the description here was –  they are smoother, speedier and have a more protected stride, even at a faster pace, these running shoes combine technologies that promise reliable comfort and style.Running Shoes for Women roadhawk
I also loved the color!

2. Gel – Cumulus 20

Here are the features that stood out for me –  increased landing surface to accommodate every foot strike, produces a gentler, more comfortable ride as you look to run further and smoother heel-to-toe movement.

3. Gel – Kayano 25 

THIS IS THE WINNER FOR MESo when I got this shoe, I was really conflicted. The main reason, it’s quite different as it has a really hard back. Something I never tried before.But when I read about it, and the features such as:
FLYTEFOAM® technology employs organic super fibers that resist compression, providing enduring bounce on even the longest runs. The signature GEL® technology minimizes impact and protects your joints.

I knew I had to try it.
