no, you run up and down outside the shop. it's on a hill, which adds to the fun. but they know their stuff.

Big bloke - do I know you? say hello next time you come in. Pic on Rich's website (Beachy Head or Abingdon) in case of any confusion over which one's me.

Whens a good quite time to turn up and try trainers out on your treadmill?
Currently wearing 2100's with orthotics but land really heavy on my heels sowould like to see if maybe a soft neutral like a nimbus would be more suitable?

The treadmill's out of action at the moment, unfortunately. You can run round the car park, though.

We don't normally recommend wearing orthotics with a support shoe like the 2100. Were they off the shelf or specially made?

Custom made for me and when i picked them up i went on the treadmill and was advised they worked great with my puma motion control trainers?

Sorry for the delay - I had to go away.

The best thing would be to bring your shoes and orthotics into the shop. It's a bit difficult to tell without seeing them.

I went to sweatshop in Bristol just over a year ago and got the adidas footscan done and was sold the latest top of the range motion control shoe - Asics 2100. The bloke in the shop was vaguely helpful but didn't watch me run in them and as far as I could tell just went on what the computer said and what the latest model to sell would be. Looking back I was too reliant on the bloke and he was too eager to sell me the latest shoe. I got injured from the shoes and still have them in their sparkling glory with just about 30 miles on the clock - just haven't got round to selling them.

That said, the guy did give me 10% off - by asking if I was a member of a club and saying "don't need to see the card, just say yes".......?!??! Perhaps just a bad case of weekend staff???? I probably wouldn't venture that far again, with a perfectly good running shop in Cardiff... I just wanted to do the footscan thing really!!!!

I should point out that my visit was a long time ago though.
20/01/2006 at 22:32
Have had computer probs!

Yes - Sweatshop

Sorry you had a bad experience. We're usually sympathetic if people have a problem after buying shoes from us. The person who served you has left now. I hope we'd do better.

didn't realise they were 2 running shops in Bristol, oh well I know now.
24/01/2006 at 14:28
themazer, have u got your new shoes yet?
24/01/2006 at 17:10
Yes and no, got them but they were a bit small and you haven't got any 9.5's.
