Buying a running shoe can be a bewildering experience. The Runner's World Shoe Finder tool is designed to give you a head start by matching up your needs and preferences with some running shoe suggestions.
Whether you're a 14st runner who needs a very stable shoe and prefers a firm ride, or a forefoot striker who wants a fast everyday trainer, the Shoe Finder should have the trainers for you.
Updated following each issue of the Runner's World Shoe Guide, released in spring and autumn, we hope the Shoe Finder will help you head to the shops with confidence.
We've tried to keep the technical talk to a minimum, but a few references to your biomechanics (the way your foot moves) are inevitable. If you find you can't tell your insole from your outsole then this plain English jargon-buster will help.
