ok all you runners out there here is a problem for you. Have been running for years when I am not crawling around with shin splints which I am at the moment. I also have a permanently swollen left ankle under shin bone fine running but tendonitis I think. Get cronic shin splints on right lower inside leg. This is the leg that is about 1-2 inches longer than the other due to dropped right side due to riding injury 21 year ago. Making sense so far..............Live in Germany and they are limited with shoes. Have been on running machines and have had feet analised (Spelt wrong it's late and I have 4 children so give me some slack!!!!!!!!!!!!) I over pronate worse on my right than my left. Have tried numerous brands of shoes. They basically sell asics and Brooks - no good. Anyway have just tried the asics KayanoXI and after 6 weeks of crippling calf pain on both legs and finally shin splints they are now sitting along with all the other expensive wastages in my cellar looking very sad and new. Got the omni 3 moderate here from the UK and after ringing several long suffering companies. Longing to try them out when I am off the floor with shin splints. Omni 4 I gather have a narrower fitting and Northern Runner in Newcastle suggested 3. Wish me luck when I do start running next millenium. Am wearing them tho. when I bike and do weights. WANT TO RUN. Am I knackered or what? leg longer than other; overpronate badly on right and not left; swollen left ankle oh and my calf muscles are very short. AND I DO STRETCH EVERYTHING I CAN STRETCH ALL THE TIME. I might chop my legs off and sew new ones on - that might help!?
