I would recommend some Asics or Mizunos. Nike makes some good running shoes as well. Ive had my Asics since 2005, ran two season of cross country/track with them and have been boxing with them for the past 2.5 years. Great shoes.

Hey bro, I'm running track and field, the best advice I can give you for shin splits is to change your pair of shoes at least every year. A good pair of shoes will help you to prevent shin splits.

As for a good pair of shoes, I would recommend you to go with New Balance or Asics, but there it really depends on what type of shoes you need and your type of foot.

If you need any advices on a particular pair of shoes, send me a PM.

They're ok, i have the black and red ones when they came out and they're comfortable but i feel they're overhyped.

Like they're good but not THAT good.

I tried running for the first time in 2 years a few weeks ago and I got bad shin splints also. I heard about the zig techs too so bought myself a pair tried them on a run yesterday I was able to go three and a half miles with no problems, of course I was doing other cardio for the three weeks since I last ran so im not saying the shoes made me run further. I would highly recommend them you will be happy.

Ive had nike shocks for years,I switched to the Reebok Zigtech and I noticed my lower back wouldnt hurt and did'nt have any problems with shinsplints.Although I know all to well bout the pain from shinsplints running with cheap shoes doesnt help thats for sure, but I vouch for the zigtech

I bought a pair of zigtechs and a pair of runtones and the zigtechs are really good theyll make your run alot smoother. The only advice I have it to get them a half size bigger than what you wear.

Did a 2 mile run on friday and a 10 mile run yesterday and while my legs and feet are a bit sore (first time ive ran in ages) my shin splints havent bothered me at all - Success!

Got a pair of Evergel gloves/wraps for underneath ur bag or sparring gloves, just saves time doing the wraps. Anybody used these before? Off to use them in 15mins or so for the first time...

Hey surge, curiously, how much did the shoes cost and is it pricey // a long process getting stuff shipped over there?


i imagine it gets on a boat unless you specify otherwise (and pay a boatload probably ^^)

i'm in the market for a solid shoe i can run roads and trails with that will hopefully last
mostly trails with roots and bumps and all sorts of fun
and somebody told me the zigtek are the way to go


over here you got chad ochocinco representing them (recently acquired by the patriots ^^)
so you know they are legit as fuuck :cool2:

i see lots of pros wear these. floyd does and a lot of other guys, they must be really good. but floyd wears everything reebok sends him, i guess hes getting paid to wear their stuff. but they look comfortable

Im using those Reebok ZigTech ones. So pissed off, i just wanna run thats all lol

Theres a gym not to long a drive away that watch u run and take studies of some sort on their computer and they apparently design u a pair of shoes fit for u that should get rid of the problem

Might give it a bash but something tells me it wont be cheap.....

never used Reebok ZigTech but i know you can go into any running shop and they measure your foot,instep,heel and the shape of your foot then they recommend you the right running shoe for your foot,give it a try it might be cheaper
