Default Running Help

Hi,

just need to advice on choosing running shoes? I am in week 3 of C25k and really enjoying it and have decided need to get some proper running shoes, dont really know what to go for. Don't want to spend that much, maybe £50 max for now. I have quite broad feet, and have normal arches,

also anyone know of any shops they would recommend in the south cheshire ish area

any ideas?

cheers and thanks

Try your local running or athletics club website/Facebook page, they'll probably be sponsored by a running shop, or have a recommended shop somewhere locally.

Don't go to a "sports" shop.
You'll probably end up with the latest fashion shoe, all but useless for running. I'd ignore Mays post. Fairly clear she knows very little about the subject.....

If you're covering serious distance you really need to get yourself to a proper running shop with gait analysis facilities - somewhere that will get you on a treadmill and analyse your stride.

Anything else is a waste of time and money.

Agreed, gait analysis is the only way.
Sports shoes .com have a simple explanation of what type of pronator you might be. I overpronate alot and have gone through loads if different styles. Hoka were by far the nicest for short runs but saucony suited me better long distance. Asics just didn't suit.
Dont go by looks. Get to a proper shop running/triathlon etc and you'll be away

You are about the only person outside of my office that I know use/used hoka's Like running on a cushion.

I've got Brooks from a gait analysis which are comfy, but I prefer the spring from Hoka's.

Biggest plus for me was better socks to be fair.

I got mine from "He runs, She Runs" I think it's called a few years ago in Meadowhall. Had a proper check thingy done on their treadmill. I ended up with some Asics but they didn't wear too well!I only did short-upto 6 mile runs though and these where both on road and treadmill.

Saucony is the best brand for me, durable and provides safety and extra cushion when running.
