Have you tried using the second lace hole for the final cross? You kind of make a loop and pass the other side through the loop and then tighten the laces as usual. It's a way to reduce heel slop. Maybe that would help. Or maybe an extra volume adjuster insole from a walking or hiking shop would help.
Yes, I already do that second-hole loop thing. It did help a bit for the heel slop, and was also good at reducing pressure on the boney lump on the top of my foot.
I've had Adidas before but they always give me blisters on my arches so I've been put off them.
I've bought a pair of sale-price New Balance 880v15 so will try those and report back on how they feel.
Any recommendations for a narrow-footed over-pronator? I've been wearing Nike Structure 18 for a few months, but my heel keeps sliding to the outside when I'm running - it feels like I have to twist the shoe back straight on my foot every few paces.
I've tried looking for narrow width shoes but they don't seem to be available in the UK from any of the usual brands (although some are available in 2E or 4E extra-wide fittings). Wondered if there is a brand that is considered narrower than than others
The best ones for your knes will be shoes that fit properly and provide the correct amount of support.
I wore neutral running shoes for years (due to being told by local sports shop I was a neutral runner) and got all sorts of injuries over the years (shin splints, ITBS, Achilles tendonitis etc)
Eventually a physio videoed my running gait on a treadmill and advised support shoes for over pronation. Since then I've had far fewer issues.
So go to either a decent sports shoe specialist or a physio with running knowledge to get analysed. I find that brand X vs brand Y makes very little difference as long as you have got a shoe that supports you properly.
