Gait assessment?

My list wouldn't impact on shoe recommendation, because shoes wouldn't correct any of the faults in the runners stride and their associated injury potential, but proper gait analysis lets you look at those things, which is why I say that shoe shops don't offer gait analysis -it's just pronation analysis...and so what?

Can you see how far in front of the hips the foot lands from behind?

Can you see the angle between the base of the ankle and the knee during foot strike from behind?

Can you see if the runner plantar flexes just before the foot leaves the ground suggesting a 'push-off' from behind?

Can you see if the knee straightens before the foot pulls off the ground from behind?

Can you see if the runner lands with a straight knee from behind?

I come back to an earlier point that Running shoe shops don't offer gait analysis, they offer pronation analysis viewed from behind only.

Anyone tried the new Inov8 Tri-Extreme 225 yet? I can't wait to get my hands on a pair (well, my feet in a pair actually!) to try them out.

Gait Assesment in running shops isn't what it seems. it's merely to identify if you overpronate or not by videoing your running up to knee height from behind.

What you need to know is that there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that runners who overpronate have an increased risk of injury or that wearing prescribed 'correcting' shoes  lowers your risk.

If you existing shoes are comfy and you have no problems then that is absolutely ideal!

I looked at the Kinvara online and the taper on the big toe side near the front put me off. It just looks like it would rub
