... you have a neutral gate?
As far as I know, running in support shoes when you are a re nuetral will introduce all kinds of gait issues and potential injury.
Why dont you look at something like the Lunarglide series from Nike with their supposed "as you need it" support? If the marketting is correct, the support will only kick in for the leg that needs it, leaving a more or less neutral shoe on the other leg.
Running in the wrong shoes, regardless of the problem may cause injury.
You could look at exercises to strengthen and increase flexibility in the quad and calf, or perhaps inserts in your shoe to compensate on that one side.
That may be your problem.
By Nike "dynamic" I assume you mean the Lunarglides?
I had a pair myself, and I really dont think they are good for much more than 300 miles max. The foam is a lot wekaer and seems to wear down faster than normal runners. You may simply be feeling the effects of running in old and knackered shoes.
