In lieu of running after back-to-back injuries, I’ve replaced some of my cardio with doing incline walking intervals on the treadmill. I’ve been using my Brooks Ghost 6’s that I used for running, but wondering if there’s something that I should be looking for that’s better for this activity?
My Brooks Ghost’s have been fine, but sometimes I feel like I’m sliding back in them. I maybe need something with a greater “grip?” There seems to be very little out there on the internet, in terms of what to look for in a treadmill shoe at high inclines. My intervals are usually 5-minutes long, set between a level of 8-15 for 35-65 minutes, but I switch it up as my legs and core get stronger..
What exactly should I be looking for in a new shoe for this kind of exercise?
