So sorry to start another new thread on shoes. I promise I have done a search on previous forum topics, but not found what I'm looking for.
I'm under the care of a physio, and he has asked me to consider purchasing some less 'stompy' shoes. By that I think he means more slimline then the ones I have now, but he does not mean completley minimalist. After much consideration he also wants me to keep using my orthotics.
I currently run in Mizuno Enigmas rotating with Brooks Glycerin 9s, which are neutral (my orthotics do all the work I'm told). I find the Mizunos are most comfortable around the toes, and are definitely deep enough for the orthotics...I put them on top of the existing insoles, whereas the Brooks are shallower and I've taken the insoles out of those to fit in the orthotics.
I run with a midfoot strike, and am probably a fairly average weight for my height - I'm not super skinny or anything, so probably do need a bit of cushion?
I've been looking a bit at the Brooks pure range, but it does say on their website that these are not suitable for orthotics. Any other suggestions? I shall be heading to my local running shop, but I like to have a bit of an idea of what I'm looking for before I get there.
Thank you for your help.
