After how many miles does your arch pain kick in? I run in new balance 860 and mizuno wave inspire 9s. These are supposed to offer more support for PF-but depends on how bad yours is. For me I erradicated my PF through stretching then it came back not too long after. Still managed to run a marathon with it but its annoying!
Hi Paul. Well the mizunos do seem to give more pain. seems they are less supportive. I think although the wave plate makes stable, the arch in the mizuno is very flat compared to my n.balance and this seems to be giving me problems. There is so much conflicting information minimalist vs support/stability. My aim was to do a marathon but at this rate im going to struggle and dont know what to do next. Orthotics? Ive been stretching but still running and from what ive read with pf this is not the way to go. Really frustrating. Do you have an idea of why you started wuth your pf?
The 860 is a stability shoe for overpronation whereas the 1080 is neutral so depends on how you run. I think the v3 has just come out in the 860 so further new mods. I currently use a combo of NB 770 and 860 (increase in stability from 770 to 860) both v1. Ive been a fan of NB for a long time. Like the fact they are made in uk. Just had gait analysis and they put me in some mizuno inspire 9. Im not getting on with them (seem to be giving me more problems than the 860 did on longer runs).
I am building up for a marathon and when I run over about 7mls I get arch pain (demonstrated in last two runs of 10 miles). Ive experienced this arch pain before (post 3peaks challenge) and physio diagnosed plantar faciitis. The problem went away after some stretches, taping etc but mainly as my activity level decreased to just running and football. I am running in NB 860 and this has reared its head again with these longer runs (so I'm stretching again). Today I went for gait analysis at up and running. I've been put into mizuno wave inspire 9 after he tried me in another pair of mizuno and a pair of brooks. Will the inspire 9 provide more support for the arch than the 860? Don't mind having paid out if it solves my issue. I suppose tomorrows run will tell me.
