I need to get some new trainers but I'm really not sure what type I should be aiming for. A few years ago I had my gait checked at a running shop and was told that I mildly overpronated on the left, but not on the right. I'm quite flat footed, but not completely. On the basis of the gait analysis I bought a pair of trainers (Asics GT2140) which I was told were for overpronators. Problem is that they have always given me a blister in quite a specific place (inside of the foot) on the foot which is supposed to overpronate. Because of that I don't wear them very often. I tried them again today and they gave me the blister within 20mins of running.
For the past few years I've generally been running in Nike Lunarglides (4+ yrs old) which don't have a lot of cushioning but don't give me blisters. I have a place in the VLM next year and will be racking up the mileage so I want to fork out on some new trainers that will not give me blisters. As well as that, I have a (thankfully) recovering Achilles injury which I think will benefit from a shoe that provides less impact on the heel.
So should I go for neutral shoes, some for mild overpronators or something else? Any suggestions?
