I could do with a bit of sound advice. I've started doing some pole assisted road walking (5-10 miles), up and down steep 1:3 & 1:4 gradients and find my Meindl boots a bit uncomfortable and rather heavy. Does anyone recommend any suitable footwear? I've looked at Asics Gel trainers and Brooks which people have said offer good support and cushioning?
I also forgot to add that I have a narrow (c width) foot and I did the 'wet test' which says I have a normal foot which is apparently biomechanically efficient.
I had my gait analysed and video'd at a local sports shop. They said I over pronate and suggested Asics 2170 GT's? Are there any other shoes people recommend? Would be good to get a few answers.
I walk very quickly up and down very steep gradients 1:3 & 1:4 so the load on my body downhill will still be high. Thanks for the advice.
Good advice RWD.
