We'd always recommend that you visit and buy your shoes from a specialist retailer in the first instance.

If you are averse to visiting a specialist store, some now over gait analysis online! Failing that your next best option is to take a close look at the wear of your existing running shoes and combine this information with your foot type to identify what shoes you require.

If you need any further help but don't wont to visit a store I'd definitely recommend using the RW forum or posting a comment on our blog where one of our experts will only be too happy to help.

Like a previous posting I also recommend Fast Feet in Bishop Stortford. Paul the owner is brilliant. Have bought two pairs there for myself and a pair for my daughter. It's a small shop but he has a huge selection, is very chatty and personable and happy to spend all the time you need.

I'm giving all my other shoes to the charity shop; I never want to wear anything else. I know they look silly, but what the hell? To be able to walk miles without pain is the most important thing, love best shoes

Good article with lots of sound advice. However, don't forget to check out the rest of your running technique and not just assume that because the foot is in the right shoes that everything else will be fixed!

Sometimes the right pair of shoes is all it takes to solve injury problems, but often the underlying problem is with running technique not just footwear.

Agree James.

Almost all running injuries are overuse injuries…

You can have perfect technique/biomechanics and the perfect shoes and still get injured if do too much too fast and / overtrain.

Obviously the bad technique/biomechanics and/or the wrong shoes will mean that overuse injury will probably happen sooner.

You can run with bad technique/biomechanics and wrong shoes and not get injured if you don’t run too far / often – the body can cope with a certain amount stress & strain and recover.

Unfortunately, when someone gets injured, they are much more likely to immediately blame the shoes rather than consider that their own weaknesses or actions could have anything to do with it.

I can highly reccomend a little shop call 'run and become' it's on palmer street just off victoria street london (about 5 mins walk from st james park station). They fitted me with my shoes and were realiy attentive to the process. Tried lots on, ran up and down the street in each pair while they watched my gait. I'll be going back when i next need a new pair.

I could do with getting a decent pair of trainers and i can get to London or anywhere in Herts on Saturday but don't know where to go to get someone who can help rather than a Saturday kid who doesn't know anything about the trainers they sell - any ideas? <a href="">premium wordpress themes</a>

 I would say don't under any circumstances change to new shoes the day before a race. Sounds like a recipe for pain anguish and a DNF!! Stick with what you've trained in and then change. Best of Luck for Sunday. Paul. premium wordpress themes
