TWTD Runners! 23:32 - Dec 27 with 1148 viewsSwailsey

My running shoes have packed up and they were probably fairly basic too tbh as they were a starter pair. I’m looking for some tips based on:

Mainly pavement running
£70 budget ish
Usually 5k 2-3 times a week
Have had minor historic problems with shins and knees but they tend to improve the more I run

Thanks to you all as always!

Running shoes can vary by person - different feet sizes and running styles can mean a great pair for someone can be awful for someone else. At the risk of sounding like a typical running geek going to a store and getting your gait analysed is the answer here if taking very seriously - and ignoring the obvious flaw with that idea currently!

Failing that I’ve found you can’t go wrong with a mid-range pair of Nikes as an all rounder. Something like a Pegasus or Lunar (eg: https://www.nike.com/gb/t/air-zoom-pegasus-37-running-shoe-mhP3dS/BQ9646-006) are decent and should be a sizeable upgrade on what you had from the sounds of it

I would go to a shop where they film you and advise you what will suit your feet. Could this hugely beneficial earlier on this year as I struggled to find trainers that fitted me without hurting when you run.

Appreciate this is difficult at the moment but if you can I would wait.

Agree that gait analysis at a proper sports store is a must.
Brand wise, I would really recommend Saucony. Have also had some success with Brooks.

Finally remember the steady build up rule. Add only 1 to 2 km each time. Plus a few rest days for recovery.
Warm ups (dynamic stretching) and Cool downs (static stretching) are also important.
Great time of year for some running. Have fun.

Get gait analysis and lots of cushioning.

I've been using Adidas boosts in various guises for 3 years. Remember to change them every 500-700km as the cushioning will be compacted and useless after this time.

I know that was then, but it could be again..

I always go to the Ascics outlet store in Wembley. Would suit your budget down to the ground. c.£120 running shoes for c.£70. Discounted because they are last seasons. All models for all running types stocked though, and they will give you a consultation re: what type of shoe would suit your running style.

Obviously not so helpful if you are not near Wembley.....but I think they have a few other outlets dotted about.

A left field suggestion, given your issues with knees and shins......

I tried running (for the umpteenth time) at the start of lockdown, and due to issues with my back and knees it was a killer, went down the cycling route and found it miles more rewarding, with the added bonus of not leaving me in agony afterwards!

I was born underwater, I dried out in the sun. I started humping volcanoes baby, when I was too young.

I went for the OnClouds ones from a website called RunnersNeed which helped with the gait analysis last time in lockdown when couldn't go to a shop.

I had a half price voucher, because think they were £120 or so, but sure cheaper ones on there.

They've been really good

Thanks everyone - getting somewhere in person isn’t an option at the moment and my old pair are literally on their last legs/feet, so will take a look at the options above. May just err on the side of caution and get one with padding?

And Dub, unbelievably, I don’t think I can ride a bike!!

On the off chance, like me, you supinate when you run (i.e. you land slightly on the outside of your foot) then I swear by the Asics Nimbus range as they provide ample gel padding along the outside of the shoe.

I say 'on the off chance' as the vast majority of runners pronate or land flat.

As someone said previously, they are usually around £120 new but you can usually find the previous years' model for circa. half that. The only difference being the colour-scheme and synonymous buzz-words that are 12 months out of date.

FWIW I swapped from some old Nikes to Asics GEL-Kayano 25's when training for a half marathon a couple of year back and the difference was amazing. Much lighter, a lot more comfortable underfoot and really good support.

I bought because they had tweaked the design to offer more arch support for pronation which I thought might be causing my knee / IT band problems at the time. I've run very little since, so can't say for sure if this solved it altogether, but certainly felt like it at the time. Planning on getting out in them a lot more in the new year.

So running on a cycle route doesn't damage your knees?

Remarkable.

Some good replies below.

Shame you can’t visit a specialist running shop - Runnersneed in London were great. They have a god web site as someone recommends.

One thought is about anti-pronation - I recommend ASICS, Saucony and New Balance - all three have a model that beefs up the inner wall to stop ankles falling.

Don’t use them is you don’t need them, or if you already have orthotic soles, but really improved some knee issues for me.

Have fun!

It's the special green paint.

It's like padding.

Try the sportpursuit.com website, although check the delivery date if you want things soon as some of their stuff is a "bulk shipping discount" and can be a month away.

Try Sportshoes.com, usually buy online from there or the Nike outlets in Norwich/Wembley.
I have to have stability shoes, best ones I’ve had if you need them are Nike Structures and now on my 3rd pair since May due to my mileage. New Balance were quite good too.

Coes when they are open do the Gait Analysis which films you running to look at your pronation.
