What shoes should you wear?
There is plenty information and misinformation in regards to which running shoes are the best. All I can say is that there is a running shoe out there that suits you and your running technique and foot posture. Whether you want to spend $120 or $320 there is always an option that will fit your foot. Below is some of my favourite runners of the moment. There is a good mix of styles and brands. If you need running shoe advice, book in for an appointment and we can discuss your running goals and how your foot posture and technique relates to the types of running shoes that would be suitable. This list is not exhaustive and models change regularly.
