Help! I have been reading all about the type of running shoes I should be wearing but am getting quite confused. I am quite new to this running lark and have been running in a pair of cross trainers. Decided that the time has come to invest in proper running shoes.
I have checked my foot shape and it is normal. But on checking the wear on my other trainers it seems to be mostly on the outside edge of my shoe(think this is called supination)
Am I right in thinking then that I require to get cushioned shoes, or because my foot shape is normal I should try stability shoes? There is some wear in my trainers on the balls of my feet but not as much as the outer edge.
Would the shop think I was nuts if I took my old shoes with me?
Didn't want to feel completely unintelligent when I go into my local running shop or should I just let them advise me?
Any Ideas? Thanks for the help.
