First time poster here and I was wondering if anyone could help me out, if thats at all possible.
I currently use a pair of Asics Nimbus 11's which to be fair ive been happy with.
I have in the past suffered with my left foot going numb starting with pins and needles, every time I feel really tight in the calf I sort of know the foot will go numb after about 5 miles. The nimbus has helped and that has sort of been kept at bay presumibly due to the cushioning but I am worried its compartment syndrome or something nasty so want to make sure my next shoe choice is the right one as ive got a VLM place next year.
Ive also suffered with small blisters on the front of my arch which would indicate perhaps I over pronate, to add to my confusion my arch is normal when doing the wet test etc and looking at my shoe wear I think im more neutral than an over pronator as the wear in the forefoot area is more oval and then to the inside under the big toe etc.
what im scared about is changing a shoe to help with stability/blisters and then the numbness gets bad again. Should I just stick with what I know had sort of been ok and work with that as in engo patches on long runs if blisters get bad or trim inner sole etc etc ?
