Shoes

For running

This one I’m pretty sure of: Asics GEL-NIMBUS 12. They’re perfect (if you somehow can get past the fact that they’re ugly as hell)

I’m going to experiment with the insoles, though. For such a long run I might want to increase the cushioning even further.

For walking

Nimbuses are perfect for running, but they’re no good for walking long distances. I need separate walking shoes. No thoughts here, though. Haven’t done my homework, yet. Guilty as charged.

I’ll be doing the research. One thing is for sure: they need to be sturdy, yet very light and comfy. I’m thinking something from the mountain running/trekking range. Standard trekking all-rounders won’t cut it – too bulky and heavy.

Wild alternative: slipper-type ultralight sneakers that I can just throw away at the end of the journey.

  1. And what about the durability of these shoes ? Is the wearing "long lasting" or only for 1-2 seasons?

  2. I don't really care as long as they don't fall apart in the middle of the run ;)

  3. Maybe you can recommend any internet/local store where i can get running shoes for reasonable price? And why did you choose Asics not other running shoes brand? Thanx for answer in advance.

  4. I bought mine at http://www.startfitness.co.uk/
    Seems to be a little less than in retail stores.

    Why Asics? I've read a bunch of reviews and got the impression that they're on top of the running world. Then just followed recommendations on their website.

    BTW, I'm probably not taking second pair of shoes. It was silly idea come to think of it. Will make do with just asicses.
