Gel-Kayano 16 & Gel-Nimbus 11
FF is right opposite types of shoes.
Take them back to shop tell them you need to identify your running style and if they can do that then ask to swap the shoes you don't need for the pair you do. If they cannot tell you your running style tell them you want to return both sets
Generally I'd say 2 things about trainers:
Get gait tested, and follow their advice.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I'd stick with the 2000 series if they've caused you no probs.
The asics store my well be right. Alot can change in your running style over 7 years. When you first started running 7 years ago particular muscles may have been weak causing the biomechanics problems. Over the last 7 years with regular running, cross training, gym work or whatever you may do will have strengthened your legs and as a result alter your biomechanics.
My gait has changed alot over the last 5 years due to loosing weight, getting strongers and leaner.
Hope this helps
