I’m terribly dissappointed with the quality of shoes. I have walked into Nike, Reebok, Adidas, Bata showrooms but can’t find one proper pair of running shoes. Sure, they are expensive and good looking but not appropriate for running long distance. What’s important is the soft cushioning sole that absorbs the relentless pounding but…sigh! none seem to have it. I was shocked to find one particular Nike pair which had a layer made of hard plywood. Holy crap! I finally settled for a bad looking adidas which had the better cushioning amongst the lot.
