/ Running shoe advice / help
I'm about due to replace my running shoes. I am looking for a set of road shoes - typical distance in them would be about 5 miles (trip to the gym).
Now the bit that I always find tricky - I am looking for a well cushioned, neutral shoe (I'm a relatively weighty sort with a wonky foot), but that is narrow.
The only running shoe I've ever had that fit well was a Montrail Highlander - not great for the road, but I'd be looking for a similar sort of dimension to that.
So, I am now throwing myself at the mercy of UKC... Send me your advice!
Go to a running shop.
Try on shoes until you find a pair that feel comfy.
I must confess I haven't seen the wide version for some while, but it runs pretty narrow anyway.
Well I wasn't much help but at least it bumped it back up!
Addidas shoes are a narrow fit (I have a few pairs and have narrow feet). Off the top of my head I think the Supernova Glide is a neutral shoe with a mid to high level of cushioning.
Nike shoes aren't particualrly narrow.
New Balance shoes come in different width fittings
Second adidas. Saucony are broad toes, narrow heels on the whole. race shoes are generally narrower than the heavier trainers... Not that you want race shoes...
Also some other brands do a B width, NB, asics, Brooks, nike! But very hard to find in the uk...
Solomon are quite narrow! They do door to trail shoes and slab shoes which might work... Or not...
Actually NB width are easier than the others...
Just off out now to test them...
