Anyone done the Wet Test as described in the Gear section?
I am currently running in Mizuno Inspire (Stability shoe) but I am getting a pain in my left foot after 2 miles or so on the arch of my left foot, it starts as a burning pain round the arch but spreads to my whole underfoot - the right foot is fine. I am also getting twinges in my knee and hip.
This lead me to think maybe its the shoes - so I tried the Wet Test and it seems I have high arches - and the article on the site suggested I need cushioned shoes, the shoe finder recomends Wave Creation (well from the Mizuno range and I like Mizuno shoes). I have always worn stability shoes but am 50 now so perhaps my gait has changed. This is also the same leg I have previously had piriformis syndromr in
Do you think I can trust this test - anyone else bought shoes after doing this ?
OK I know I should have a video Gait Analysis but there are so expensive - Advanced Performance are good and free if you buy the shoes but thats a 200 mile trip for me
Any advice welcome
