Hi,

I've been thinking about going to a specialised running shop for sometime now. I think Ive got a bad running technique and my feet seem to sit naturally at the 10 to 2 position, Ive noticed when Im on the treadmill my left foot seems to hit the ground at a akward angle compared to my right one. Im thinking this may put pressure on my leg muscles and cause them to ache once I have been running for awhile.

Anyway if getting customised shoes will help this then great I will go buy them however my question is this :-

If wearing these shoes helps in training whats going to happen when I get to RT? I know I will have to run in my boots and silver shadows. Does that mean that my leg pain or bad running/footing will come back since Im no longer wearing my customised shoes?

Thanks in advance for the replies :)

i strongly advise you go to a specialist shop like i did, they put me on a treadmill for 4 minutes and assessed my feet and offered me a range of running shoes to correct them as i over-pronate, now i havn't got shin splints or leg pains since, and they're comfortable as anything!

Thanks for the reply, what will you do when you get to RT and cant take your trainers with you? Or do these trainers permanently fix problems?

I think you can buy special in-soles which would help, and you'd be able to take them with you. I think there quite expensive but it might be worth asking.

The shoes i have are suppose to permanently fix my feet i think, aslong as i dont wear cheap unfitting shoes again i shouldn't have a problem ( this is what i'm told ) so yeah, the test they do doesn't cost you anything and the shoes only cost me £65 ( reduced from £100 )
