Diadora running shoes

So our local running store opened back up this week. I went today after work to support a local small business. I usually wear Asics gel nimbus because they are the most cushioned shoes I can find. The salesman introduced me to Diadora; I had never heard of them. They are extremely cushioned which I like. I wore them tonight for my workout but it wasnít really high impact. So far, so good. I hope they hold up well.

Has anyone ever heard of this brand? Anybody wear them? I looked them up online and I believe they are an Italian company.

Kim, I haven't! But I need new shoes too. I have been overwhelmed with the many brands.

I wear Asics right now but although they were great at first, they haven't held up well.

Did you try, and dismiss, any other brands?

I'm curious if you had occasion to try some of the others (in case those Italian ones aren't here. )

I have. They are a brand that was around many years ago. They were also very popular as soccer shoes.

Yes! They were my soccer shoes of choice in middle and high school (in the 90s) I have no idea what they are like now, but maybe I should try some out!

I’m an ASICS girl too. Keep me posted as you continue to wear them. Always looking for something new

My cycling shoes are Diadora. I'd be interested in trying running/walking shoes. I wear Asics, too. They fit well, but one pair is too bouncy/squishy for me. The other pair has just the right amount of cushion and breathability, but the fit could be just a little better.

Never heard of them. But I also never heard of Altra before either and I just got a pair and really like them.

ChelePA, I got them at Scranton Running Company. (in case you're interested) I don't shop there often. Last time I was there, I got two pairs of Hoka (and at that time I had never heard of that brand). I guess I should shop there more often!

Linda,

I have worn Asics for YEARS, only because they seem to be the most cushioned when I try them on. I have dabbled with different brands here and there (Brooks, Hoka, New Balance), but I pretty much go back to Asics. It seems like the cushioning breaks down quicker than it used to. The big thing seems to be getting the shoes as light as possible and I don't know if they are using different material or what. I also don't like the material used for the uppers (I'm talking all brands, not just asics).

I haven't been truly happy with a pair of fitness shoes in more years than I can count. The last ones I absolutely loved were Etonic and as far as I can tell, they don't make shoes anymore.

Love the Scranton Running Company! They helped me pick out sneakers for my daughter to prevent her knees from hurting while running. They did a great assessment on her gait.
