The worst of big business. No conscience. - Advantages: ubiquitous - Disadvantages: Expensive shoes made in Asian sweat-shops by contractors, from the brand that bought off the Brazilian football team, with shoes whose soles can break - not so well-made..!
I bought some air max trainers a couple of months ago, they are not the ones pictured, but are similar, and nicer. They are really comfortable and last a long time in comparrison to other trainers. Mine cost me £80 and at the time i was not too sure if they would be worth the money or not, but after 2 months of use, they have proven to be a quality buy. The air in the soul really helps you bounce and is very conforting on the heal, so that when jogging on solid ground there is hardly any shock vibrations through the heal, knees and up into the lower lumbar region (lower back). The bad thing about these is that they are so nice you dont want to get them dirty, and as with all trainers, they do end up getting dirty and i have noticed that dirt is very hard to scrub from the soul and my trainers are getting quite dirty already. They are also different from the usual Adidas or Nike retro style trainer. I think that about 1 year ago Reebok Classics were all the rage, but Nike Air Max will soon become the trainer to be seen in. I think £80 is a decent price for Nike Air Max and i would recommend this purchase.
Good comfy shoes, any man (or women for that matter) should be entitled to them. For those who have enough money, they can go a little further. Nike, Air. All I have to say. Treat your feet like you would like them to treat you.... If they hurt, get a pair of these, comfy and style. These robust shoes, live long in the name of Nike Air, giving maximum support around the arch and ball of your foot, they are a true dream to wear. The base of the shoe is strudy and will last for a long time if you are shooting hoops or going for a jog. An all round excellent trainer, if you think its too expensive, just wait untill you try it on!
