No matter how long you’ve been running for, buying new running shoes or trainers can be tricky when there’s so many to choose from. Research shows that four out of five runners are probably running in the wrong shoes – not great news as it can make running uncomfortable and even lead to injury. So it’s important to pick the right ones! But how do you know which are best for your feet?
The experts over at Asics recommend before choosing a pair you need to know what your running style is. In the Oxford Street store they have a ‘run analyzer’ tool which looks at the way you run to find shoes that support your natural movement. Head to the store for a free analysis with one of their team.
