Forefront cushioning HELP

I am in the swings of marathon training and have had pain in one foot. Just been to podiatrist and it seems that the arch on the ball of my foot is wrong - don't know the technical speak for it, just need to get the right running shoes.

To cut a long story short I need a ladies neutral shoe with forefront cushioning. Can anyone help? I need a new shoe and fast!!

HELP ME PLEASE.

  • Asics Gel Cumulus maybe?

    Best thing is to get yourself down a decent running shop and ask for their advice and try on a variety of shoes.
  • Loads of front end cushioning in my new NB1060's. Very neautral as well. V comfy after 15 miles this morning.
  • I am a neutral forefront runner and have only just found this out after going for my feet/running assessing.

    It was the best thing I have done - My friend laughs at my running because I run on my toes and I have now found out that there are other people who run just like me image  I am not so weird as I thought!!!

     It doesnt say where you are from but I went to Humber runner in Hull and my new trainers cost me £100.00 - bit expensive but they are the new range of trainer for a neutral forefront runner.  If you want I can find out the exact name as I am  sure you will be able to get them cheaper from somewhere else.

     also remember that there should be enough room at the front of your trainer to allow for movement.  I am a size 6 and ended up with a size 7 trainer but much better - and no more shin splints or dead toes either!!!

  • Neutral forefoot runner - and you bought, with advice, Asics Gel Evolution 5?
    Am I missing something here?
  • who knows - its what they sold me !!!  its the first time I have ever bought trainers from a running shop, as I am new to all this!!!

     it might not be these exact ones - they just look like them.... can find out though and confirm.

     why whats wrong ?

  • Asics Gel Evolution 5. This is from Asics' own website which fitness footwear have used on their site.

    A striking colourway in this the signature shoe of the maximum support category. The fifth version of the GEL-EVOLUTION is packed with features to support those with severe over pronation whilst remaining surprisingly light and flexible.

    Suitability wise it's the exact opposite of what you've described.
  • i will check when i get home tonight image

     I bet I have just looked at the wrong ones on the website  image

  • What about these?

    www.asics.co.uk/running/products/gel-nimbus-women
  • G Diddy - they are the ones image

     you are good... thank you for finding them image  does this mean i have the right trainers now?

  • It looks like it.
    I just wouldn't want another forefoot striker to read the earlier posts and buy some Asics Evolution.
    As Cougie says 'Go to a proper running shop' and you did.
    Good luck with your running. You'll be fine i'm sure.
