I’m tryna get me some new running shoes and would like some that are bouncy and have good rebound power. Any suggestions?

    One of the best is certainly the Nike Pegasus... I don't have it but afaik it's one of the best reviewed! I heard good things about the Asics gel nimbus too

    I would go with Nike. A little pricey but good quality, in my opinion.

    I ended up getting ASICS Men's Gel Nimbus 25 Knit Cushioned Running Shoes

    They’re comfy, and feel like walking on clouds lol the rolling toe makes you want to start sprinting and I got em on sale!

    Nike are great for rebounding, however I find they get worn out very fast. For training I use the Altra Escalante and I save the Nikes for races only.

    A friend of mine recently bought them.. he's quite happy with them and he has been told that they last a lot of time

    Asics are really good. I personally find them a bit too narrow for my feet. For wider feet I'd go with New Balance

    Never heard of those 2 brands before. I guess I just don't know a lot about shoes 😜

    They're among the most well known running shoes that aren't fashion shoes. Really good quality. You should look then up^^

    Actually the activity is more important than the shoes. You can get whatever you find and feel good in it. If you think too much the summer will pass without knowing and you will add the same questions next year.

    You need to try before buying. Some shoe models will be perfect for some people, while other shoes will better fit other people. However, some brands have certain foot types in mind while designing shoes. For example, Nike and Adidas are designed for medium width feet, Puma and ASICS are designed for narrower feet, while New Balance cater to people with wider feet (NB regular width is basically wide Nike/Adidas)…

    Other than that, basketball-designed shoes are known for their rebound effect. They are not the best for running, however…

    Can't go wrong with Nike Pegasus.

    They are among the best, but, like I said, try before you buy…

    Of course. There are different shapes of feet and a style of shoe will not suit everyone. That's why I don't buy shoes online. I go to the store and try them on and walk around the store a bit.
