Bought a pair, found it to be a little uncomfortable.

BUT what I like about it is it looks GOOD & makes me look taller .....lol....

Do u think the shoes good for running? Usually I go for Nike and Asics running shoes. The reason why im looking at Skechers shoes as they mention about toning up while execersings or either walking.Not sure whethe it's comfort for jogging or gym workout?

Have you tried them on before?

They are heavy so I dont think it'll be good for running-BUT then, I'm no runner myself so.......
I only walk in them.
First time I worn them, I felt a little giddy (that's expected ) after a while it's ok, I guess my body sort of adjusted to it.

New Balance or Asics for running shoes, no question about it, there are no others in my opinion!

Just to add, New Balance is much suitable for Westerners while Asics is more suited for Asians, unless they have wide foot width like Westerners LOL :P

Here's something you will find fun in Running Lab or any specialised sports shop: Get each shoe from NB and Asics of same size. Compare them side by side. You will realise that the NB has wider bridge while Asics has narrower one.

An experienced marathoner I spoke to shared this info and I find it is true. Because I have small feet AND narrow bridge so the only shoes I can wear without getting wobbly at the side is Asics alone.

That's very interesting, I've learnt something too! I have massive wide feet and I get discount on New Balance so I tend to prefer that right now :) ;)
