Now, I already have these generic nike sneakers that I've had for about 4-6 years. They're pretty comfortable and I use them for everything. I've used them to run before, and most of the time I don't feel pain in my legs while or after running. Sometimes I get shin splints, but that was probably because I didn't stretch/warm up enough or went too hard too fast.
But, for this summer, I plan on running pretty much everyday for I guess about an hour (30 minutes to work, 30 minutes back).
So, should I invest in running shoes?
If so, which ones? The guy at foot locker recommended either the ASICS (ASICS Gel 1150) or Shocks. When I tried on both shoes, I prefered the ASICS. Are there other brands I should look into?
