This was not the sneaker for me
on May 16, 2013
I recently began a series of workouts that require cross trainers vs. running sneakers and after performing the workout routine, I understand why. Running sneakers do not support your foot in any side to side motion... I picked these cross trainers from ASICS because of the great reviews it received and because I know the company makes quality sneakers (I've had ASICS in the past). But I'm sad to say these sneakers were terrible for my feet. They have no cushion and felt like they have no support, either. I tested them out with a mild version of my workout and I got shin splints the very next morning. I had no choice but to send the sneakers back. In fairness to this sneaker, I typically wear running sneakers for most of my activities so I do recognize there will be a short period of getting used to but I draw the line at shin splints. My goal is to find a cross trainer with a significant amount of support and cushion for my workouts.
