Hi guys,

[a message from a newcomer]

First, nice to meet you all here. I have a question about shoes.I don't know much about them. Recently after my old shoes being worn out, I bought a new one. First it happened to be the famous Ascis GT-2110. But I didn't feel OK! It seemed that that bump on the bottom of the shoe is laid too backwards for my feet's curve. So I decided to try another one and I came across Ascis-Gel Landreth. It felt very comfortable and is designed for neutral feet, so I bought it.

According to that saleman who seemed to be a specialist (took a vidoe when I was running on a band), this pair of shoes suited me very well. I tried them several time after that, but now for the first time in my life I feel some pain in my knee, while I ran regularly with my old cheap shoes without any problem. (btw, i am not overponated and have a neutral/normal gait - according to that specialist).

So what went wrong? why do I feel some stroke on my knee when I am running in my new shoes ? Btw, the stroke seems to be on the outer side of the knee.

What do you think of these shoes, and have anybody here had any experince with them?

Thanks,
Hamid

Hi Hamed,

Belated welcome to Runners Forum. I hope you return in response to this post.

I just bought a pair of Asics Gel-Landreth II running shoes. I'm really pleased with the staff at the The Runners Centre, Norwich. I tried on many pairs of running shoes and went out for a little run down the street to get the feel of them. Eventually £75 lighter and a good chat on training, clubs and events I left with a pair of Asics Gel-Landreth II.

I'm due to go out for a run tomorrow so I'll let you know how I get on with the Asics Gel-Landreth II running shoes.

There must be other Asics Gel-Landreth II users out there. How have you found them?

Cheers,
Dave

Hamid,
Don't know much about the Landreth but I'm curious as to why you tried the 2110 as these are meant for mild to moderate overpronators.

The pain in your knee that you describe do you get it at any particular point in a run? Does it hurt more running down hills?

What make were your old shoes?
