my first 10k in a pair of racing trainers, I ran the Birchwood 10k and got a new PB in these.
i was concerned about whether I'd end up with pains in my knees & shins due to the lower amount of support & cushioning in a racing shoe, as I have a slight overpronation and usually run in either Asics Kensei 2 or Saucony Paramount because they offer good support but also good cushioning. I've suffered with shin splints and sore knees so far after upping my mileage to about 25+ a week over the last few months.
today, I'm frankly stunned as I suffered virtually no pain at all in my feet, knees or lower legs whilst running in the Mana during the race (at quite a hefty pace for me), and I've suffered no bad after-effects today at all! My legs & knees feel absolutely fine.
does anyone else run/race in the Adidas Adizero Mana shoes and what do they think of them? I highly recommend them - although obviously not everyone else is like me
I've got the Adios shoes and their also great. The amount of cushioning for the weight is excellent and they feel so natural and responsive.
Like yourself I also usually wear support shoes however the Adios is a neutral shoe and I've had no problems at all.
The Mana has abit of support so I'd be tempted to get some of them for running a marathon.
