Help me choose a running shoe
Here are two simple tests that can you do in your own home that will help you work out what type of running shoe is the most suitable for you.
Running shoe are categorised according to whether the runner needs support or not. If you over-pronate when you run (roll inwards) then you will need a support running shoe ,if you don't you need a neutral shoe.
2. Then gently squat down on your right leg only. Then do it with your left leg too. Look down at your knees each time and check to see where they are pointing as you bend down. Do your knees point inwards? If so, you are likely to be an over-pronator.
3. Are they pointing straight forwards, in line with your second toes? If so, you are likely to be a neutral runner.
4. Are they pointing outwards? If so, you are likely to be a neutral runner or supinator.
