These Asics Black Friday deals are giving my knees a new lease of life. What on earth am I talking about, you might be asking. But over the last six months, I've been training for a marathon and the biggest takeaway so far is if you haven't got the right trainers, your knees really won't thank you for it.

Even though the main event has ended, Walmart is still offering some incredible Asics Black Friday deals. Right now, you can get the ASICS Women's Gel-Nimbus 22 D Running Shoes for $60 cheaper (opens in new tab),  reduced to $89! One of the most reputable brands in the running world, Asics is renowned for its supportive trainers around the globe. 

In fact, we've included Asics trainers in our guide to the best running shoes for women. These really are pro-level trainers but with a much more affordable price tag right now, so snap them up while you still can. 

Here are the top best Asics Black Friday deals available right now...

These cushioned running shoes are now $30 cheaper at Walmart. Cushioned for comfort and ideal for long-distance running, these shoes also have a seamless upper. 

I made the mistake of choosing any old pair of trainers when I started out running and after seeing a running coach, I decided if I was going to take on a serious distance race, I needed to get serious about my shoes too. 

My coach recommended investing in new running shoes every 200 miles that I covered but even if you're just starting out with running, it's well worth getting your shoes sorted before you start noticing sore knees or even a bad back. But, aside from over Black Friday, these shoes don't normally come cheap which is why now really is the best time to buy some.
