There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.”

Every time I run it's with the mindset that if I die at this race, it's OK."

I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”

The world is actually full of challenges and we need to challenge ourselves. I took a challenge to run that fast. It consumes a lot of energy especially mentally. But I took myself and accepted to be challenged and I challenged the time.”

Hello everyone, a friend is looking at buying new shoes and was hoping to find a shoe shop that can see/analyse his form and recommend the right shoe. I got good advice and basic analysis at Adidas showroom in Abu Dhabi couple of years back and searching for something similar in Dubai. ... See MoreSee Less

Because every runner has an individual running style, and because different material combinations and applied technologies in shoes affect this style, ASICS is offering a free service to help you decide on the best running shoes for you. Using MOTION ID, the new ASICS running analysis system, the experts will perform a real 3D motion analysis of your running style, to give you a scientifically validated, reliable and objective results to help you pick the highest performing ASICS shoe for you. You can visit Sun & Sand Sports in The Dubai Mall and they will complete the 20 minutes analysis for you before buying the best ASICS shoes for your feet 🙂

Try absolute run at Dubai mall.. they have motion sensors to identify the foot type,( flat, low arch, curve...) and they recommend the right shoes .. unfortunately they only have Brooks, ON, new balance with them.. may be your friend can check and go for other alternates like asics or nike

Thank you Joseph Khater and Balaji Rangarajan . This is just what he needed.

you can try go sports at mall of emirates level-2 they also have motion id test , ive done form there try that also if ot helps

GAIT ANALSysis from Asics is available in Mall of Emirates, Dont remember if it was Go Sports or Sun and sand sports... Myself got done there...

Try Brooks store at MOE..I found it useful.

Currently, you can find Motion ID test at Go Sport store Dubai Mall and MoE. This running analysis goes beyond pronation analysis - it uses motion sensors to evaluate your biomechanics and identify which ASICS shoes are the best fit for you and your unique running style.
