Being quite new to this lark, my first pair of shoes were bought with little thought for how I run etc. Initially this wasn't a problem, as I didn't run more than 4 or 5 miles. Now i'm aiming for regular 1/2 marathons and the shortcoming of my Reeboks (mistral DMX) are becoming apparent.
I'm not sure if I "overpronate", but my feet do tend to develop a muscle-type pain across the top and down to the instep, after about 8 miles. My knees also become painful where they meet the thigh after about 10 miles. I am trying to do more trail running, to lessen the impact and now want a new pair of shoes, but which ones? Will it be cushioning, motion control or stabilty? I'm flummoxed!
