/ Which running shoe?
The most important things is to get a pair that fits the shape of your foot. Different manufacturers use different lasts, so the shapes of their shoes are different, and what works well for one person might be a horror story for someone else.
You'll also find different levels of support in the sole, with varying amounts of correction for different levels of pronation.
So, you need to go to a decent running shop with staff who know what they're talking about and try a number of different pairs.
I use Brooks Adrenalines, but that's no guarantee they'd be any use to you.
I've enjoyed having these.
I'm not a believer in energy absorbing padding and support. Feet have evolved to cope without.
Q: Are you injured?
A: No: Q: Is there a directly equivalent model of you shoe that you can buy?
A: Yes. BUY IT. IN fact, BUY two pairs now.
A: No. Swear. Then go to a running shop and try a whole load of pairs on. Buy the ones that are closest to feel of the old one. Hope you don't get injured.
A: Yes: Q: Is is related to your shoes, even remotely?
A: No: See a physio. Then get new shoes as above
A: Yes: See a physio. Then get advice as to the type of shoes and or orthotics which might help. Do all the exercises they suggest, Buy new shoes on their advice AT A RUNNING SHOP where you can try them all on. Get the ones closest to the advice you were given. Hope they don't make the injury worse in some other way.
Bother, it removed my indenting
