Jogging shoes should enable symptom-free jogging even after prolonged use. But that's a problem: 8 out of 12 running shoes in the “Kassensturz” test lose more than 40 percent of their cushioning properties after prolonged exposure.

Many running shoes are outrageously expensive. But are they as good as the price promises? Some shoes do not meet the requirements, as a test by “Kassensturz” and “A bon Entendeur” shows.

In the test were 6 women's and 6 men's shoes, mainly from the brands Asics, Nike, Adidas and Puma, but also from Mizuno, Saucony and Sketchers (women) and New Balance and Victory (men).

Sketchers loses cushioning extremely

One running shoe for women that was not one of the expensive ones in the test failed completely: Sketcher Run-Tone-ups. The changes in the damping properties are insufficient: After a year of use, these shoes dampen impact by 65 percent less than when they were new - an unacceptable value.

Migros emphasizes that the Sketchers run-tone-ups are not sold as running shoes at SportXX, but as casual shoes. That is why the demand for the durability of the damping is not justified.

The cushioning when new is in the green area for all shoes. Whether you need shoes with more or less cushioning must be clarified individually. Different properties are required depending on body weight, surface and running style.

Cushioning: weakness of many running shoes

Heel runners - people who step with their heels and don't cushion much when walking - need good cushioning. "With forefoot runners, which primarily occur on the ball of the foot, the damping properties play no role at all," says sports doctor Matteo Rossetto from the Basel Sports Clinic.

But if you buy a shoe with a certain level of cushioning, you have to be able to rely on consistent properties.

The cushioning also loses its effect on other jogging shoes in the test. It worsens by 50 percent or more
• in the women's running shoes Nike “Air Pegasus + 28”, Adidas “Supernova Glide 4” (and of course Sketchers),
• Victory “Performance Running” jogging shoes for men.

With three other shoes, the loss is between 40 and percent. By far the smallest change in cushioning was shown in the test on the men's Nike “Air Max Limitless” model (18%). Among the women's models, Mizuno “Wave Riders 15” (30% loss) and Saucony “Powergrid Triumph 9” (37%) are the most resistant.

The second test criterion is the wear on the sole of the jogging shoes. Saucony is convincing in this criterion for running shoes for women, only Sketchers is even better.

Men's shoes have greater sole wear

When it comes to running shoes for men, the models from Adidas and Victory achieve the best values.

The laboratory found substantial abrasion in the Asics Gel Innovate 3, and it is also high in the models from the New Balance and Puma brands.

The abrasion of the men's shoes is generally higher than that of the women's models.

So was tested

“Kassensturz” and “A bon Entendeur” had 12 running shoes tested at the CNT testing institute in Lyon (F). Price range: CHF 79.90 to CHF 250 for the women's models, CHF 59.90 to CHF 189 for the men's models.

The laboratory carried out the following tests:

  • Measuring the damping properties
  • Simulate the use of the running shoe during a year with machine load
  • Measuring the damping properties after use
  • Measurement of sole wear due to load

The following were assessed:

  • Change in the damping properties
  • Sole wear

    Test jogging shoes
    Unfortunately, what always goes wrong with these tests is that the two most important points are not taken into account.
    1. The statics of the shoes, which means that the shoe is straight from the start, you are amazed, but unfortunately this is not the standard for all shoes and so they automatically come into a misalignment
    2. If you are a heel runner, you have already lost your running technique for a long time, because your muscles should dampen. RS federal diploma master shoemaker + Jo ...
