This week I made my first visit to see a podiatrist after suffering a persistant priformis/ hip injury.
Whilst not being able to cure this injury, the podiatrist revealed that contrary to popular belief (I.E. every running shop I have been to for the last six years) I do not overpronate, but instead have inflexible feet with a high arch and clearly supinate (spelling?) (Underpronate).
I am planning to make a visit to some running shops to replace my current trainers (Adidas Supernova Control and Asics 1080) as I believe they are more designed for overpronators.
My question is - in the current market what makes/models of trainers should I be expecting the sales assistant to be offering me?
From reading the gear guide on this website I should want a neutral shoe with a rounded last. However most of the current neutral models reviewed on this website don't make it clear that they are specifically for underpronators - they are more designed for biomechanically efficent neutral runners.
In terms of needs, I run between 40-50 miles a week, preferred race is 1/2m. I would look to be buying two models for rotation and possibly a racing flat for shorter distances (Although that is low priority at the moment).
Any advice will be much appreciated.
