Reebok Easytone/Runtone Vs Skechers Shape Ups.

Ive been thinking of getting a pair of these to increase the resistance when I run.
OA has said she liked the Reebok so off I pop to order a pair, then I come across Skechers shape ups, and Im confused, they're two very different style soles but now Im wondering which are best. Anyone tried both styles? What did you prefer or what would you recommend.

Have you tried reviewing them online? I dont buy anything nowadays unless I read reviews, I even reviewed the soil we recently got for the garden, sad I am I know lol.

MIL has the Sketchers and swears by them. I have the Reebok and am equally in love. How's that for unhelpful!

Yip first thing I did was google them to check and thats when I became even more confused. OA does your mil use her's for running or just walking?

Thanks OA, Im going to invest in a pair of reebok runtone apparently they've more resistance than the easy tone so hoping they make me work my ass off and I tone up the wobbly bits that have started to creep upon me.

I need some new gym trainers badly, what sort of price are you talking? I know I can get 10% off at DW sports but no idea how much they cost. Off for a google.

Where is DW? Ursh they start roughly at about £75 for the easytone ones, depending on style etc they can cost more. Average is about £90. Am going to Belfast to get a new pair tomorrow, hoping to try them out tomorrow night when OH gets home.

Mine were £60 on special offer at JJB, which was cheaper than most places. If you're running regularly it's essential to wear decent runners, your knees will thank you in twenty years for spending twenty quid more on something good.

I meant I was going for a run, not chasing after OH...

DW is DW Gyms with the sports stores attatched. Used to be JJB round here, DW stands for Dave Whelan (chairman of Wigan FC) who owns them.

Quite by conincidence I got a text from my friend today who said she's bought some Reezigs from DW reduced from £89 to £79 then they had another 10% off plus her !0% with her DW members cards so she got quite a bargain. I'm going tomorrow so I think I'll try some on and see how they feel.
