    BGP QOTD: What's your favorite shoe company?

    Girlfriend and I have been having this debate as the oldest runs for UK. Gf isn't traditionally a fan of the swoosh!

    For me, it's Nike all the way! What about you?

    Since I found them about 6 or 7 years ago...Brooks. Had never tried them before, but had the Beast model recommended for me (flat feet), and absolutely love them.

    I used to love Nike when I was younger (20-25). That changed when everything switched over to their "Air" line. Something about the support of those shoes never really fit my feet right.

    I've been all Sketchers for the last 15 years or so.

    Without question, Nike.

    Air Max's are my favorite shoe of any brand.

    UA and Nike about 50/50. I'm a UA stock holder so I try to support them as much as I can.

    Depends on what they are for.

    Running - 2 miles or shorter probably Inov8
    Running - more than 2 miles don't really have a favorite
    Crossfit - Inov8 flite 195 although they aren't the most durable. Nike Metcons have been my go too. I don't like the fit and feel as much as the Inov8 but they hold up much better.
    Everyday shoe - whatever looks and feels the best. No favorites.

    As far as a serious running shoe Nike is well behind the pack. I think their Pegasus line is a pretty solid running shoe but other than that they are pretty sub par.

    Adidas Ultraboost.

    It is the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn.

    I have three pairs and I think this is my favorite:

    For running shoes its Brooks. For every day wear, New Balance is my go to, so comfortable.

    Nike. I’ve been branching out a little more recently as Adidas has been putting out some good product recently and I have a pair each of NMDs, UBs, and EQTs. As comfortable as Boost is though, I think Nikes counter with the epic react is pretty dang good. I actually tested boost vs react this summer when I was at Disney and after a day of walking my feet felt better with the Nikes. The boost have more instant comfort but the react was better at the end of the day. I am exclusively Footjoy for golf but have been contemplating pickup up a pair of G4’s for a while. I have been sporting Nike Metcons at the gym for a while, but NoBull has my interest, the price is higher than the Metcons so I don’t feel like it’s worth it.

    In all seriousness I typically only buy Nike. Except I did buy Puma golf shoes this year that I love.

    I like NB's also. They are usually more comfortable than Nike's.
