I am a neutral runner who runs fairly high mileage (over 2000 miles per year). I've been wearing Asics Gel-Nimbus shoes for several years now - 7's (my alltime favorites), 8's (ehhhh), and now the 9's(still ehhh, but better). I hear the 10s are being released soon.<br><br>
I think it's about time to experiment with some other neutral Brands. What other brands and Models might you suggest I check out?<br><br>
Thanks, Bill

I got a pair of Brooks Adrenaline 7s free when I ran Akron last year. They're pushing 400 miles and for the first time since I've started running, I'm thinking about getting the same shoe twice in a row.<br><br>
BTW I switch shoes a lot because I'm blessed with very forgiving feet. Any nuetral shoe has been fine; I even trained in flats for a while until I realized I could only get 250 miles on them. Anyway, I switch because I've always bought whatever nuetral shoe was on sale. <a href="http://www.holabirdsports.com" target="_blank">www.holabirdsports.com</a> has them (the Adrenalins) for like $67.

Bill,<br><br>
I've been running in Asics Gel-Nimbus for a number of years now....don't know how many pairs I've gone through... usually get 400 miles out them. Last year I got a great deal on a pair of Brooks Glycerin's at the Carlsbad Marathon and really like them..... I think they're a little lighter but have as much cushioning and last longer.....I've gotten about 500 miles out of both pairs.<br><br>

Have you bought from this company before? Their prices look good on the Brooks Glycerin...... how's their shipping .... do they get their shipments out quickly?

I bought a bunch of running socks from them once. Great service, cheap prices, fast shipping... I'd definitely buy again based on that one transaction.<br><br>
NFI in them...<br><br>

I hover around 2000 per year, and I switch between Aisics Cumulus, Landreth and Mizuno Wave Riders. I haven't used Waveriders since the 9's and I know the 10's got some funky reviews from friends of mine who wore them. I think they are on 11's now, so I might give those a try at some point.<br><br>
I can usually squeak in about 450-500 miles out of the Landreths, and 500-550 out of the Cumulus and Mizuno Wave riders. I'm a fairly light weight guy, tall but thin 150 pounds.
