I am a severe overpronator and, despite having "proper" running shoes (that were "prescribed" by a specialist running shop) to help with this, I am still plagued by shin splints, sore calves, ankles and achilles!
I bought the Green version of Superfeet insoles but they haven't really helped - which I suspect may be something to do with the fact that they are in my overpronator shoes = too much support = sore!!
I have been to see a Podiatrist who advised that orthotics were necessary. Apparently motion control shoes only provide 4% support, but I need at least 8%. To do this will require me to buy another new pair of running trainers AND pay for the orthotics, which in the current climate is a bit steep!!
I would like to hear from other runners who have had similar experiences and have either seen improvements from the orthotics or who have not (and have tried other alternatives).
I look forward to hearing from my learned running pals! Thanks in advance!
