My Reading Room

1. ADIDAS ULTR ABOOST LACELESS LTD

$340, available at Suntec Adidas retail store. 

You won’t feel the aches from running when you wear this. For starters, the supportive heel construction is specially designed to enable the free motion of your Achilles tendon – cutt ing the risks of tearing it accidentally when you do your speed training. The shoe’s rubber outsole provides you with a superior grip, so that it adapts to your foot strike and nobody else’s. And combined with the company’s Boost technology, the end result is a smoother and more flexible ride for you. 

2. ASICS GEL-NIMBUS 20 PLATINUM 

$289, available at Asics retail stores. 

This model celebrated its 20th anniversary in the staple category, and it’s not hard to see why: It provides the runner with one of the best rides ever, with the shoe’s new upper coupled with the gradient mesh. There’s more room in the toe area, which means you won’t get blisters easily. The fluid skin upper adapts to your foot’s size and shape, and strategic overlays seamlessly wrap and support it throughout the run as you clock up the mileage. 

3. UNDER ARMOUR UA HOVR PHANTOM

$229, available at Under Armour brand houses. 

You may not want any other the moment you get this. Made from the company’s trademark Hovr system, your foot will enjoy superior cushioning as you clock the mileage. The external heel counter has superior lockdown, which will guide you to have efficient feet strikes, and the shoe’s knitt ed collar provides you with superior comfort and adaptation around your ankle. And since it’s designed with moderating interior layers of PU foam and Ortholite foam under and around your foot, you will enjoy the comfort.
