Top Running Shoe Comparison

Adidas ClimaCool® vs Nike Shox vs ASICS® Kayano® XII

ASICS® Gel Kayano® XII Regularly Prices at $119.99

New to the field, it holds its own against the giant shoemakers Adidas and Nike.

First off, ASICS® Gel Kayano® understands the difference between the genders and they make separate shoes for men and women for a better fit.

Their Solyte midsole reduces the weight drastically. Their standard GEL® Cushioning placed in the heel, and the front of the feet provides excellent shock absorption.

Nike Shox TL 3 Regularly Prices at $150

A later comer in the Nike line is Nike Shox running shoe series.

Three layers provide a better fit, more comfort, and outstanding breathability.

The TPU support at midfoot combines lacing with the excellent lockdown.

The bisected heel makes for a smooth landing. And the Nike Shox technology is applied to the entire sole for impact protection.

ClimaCool® Cadrona by regularly priced at $84.95

Adidas naturally produces winning products. ClimaCool® enhances ventilation while keeping support.

It includes adiPRENE® places at midsole for shock absorption Agion™ lining for fighting bacteria.

And, the Rigid Push is installed through Protection Plate (PTPP) to protect feet from hard knocks.

ClimaCool® may not be Nike Shox but priced about half the Nike. It may worth a closer look, especially since some claim that Shox Technology is not as durable.

ClimaCool® gives you fast drying, great traction, support, and shock absorption that may eclipse Nike.

Still, if durability and price are not important and you want to show off your Nike at family get-togethers, who am I to stop you?
