Running shoes vs muscle cramp

At Sundown, I ran with Asics GT2130. My feet were sore and my both thighs cramped!

At the recent to-be-improved SCKLM, I wore Adidas Supernova Glide. My calfs and a very seldom heard muscle set (it was either Adductor Longus or Gracilis muscle) cramped! Even, there was a mild contraction at my face muscle, around my jaw area (buccinator I guess). Funny...

My running posture got to be a constant. So, it's down to my shoes. Perhaps, how both shoes absorb and distribute the impact to our legs are very different.

Which shoes is better? I believe it's by individual. For now, I will personally stick to Asics & Adidas still.

Asics is the best running shoes I have ever had. I always prefer to wear comfortable and flexible shoes.

We all have some sort of cramps due to over exertions we make while running and in the end end up with muscle cramps and have start over again from zero but Physiotherapy North Ryde has some other plans for you to run safely without any pain.
