two weeks in and my pre baby ones are giving me blisters due i think to the spreadage of my feet (the one thing i was not expecting) im off out today to get some new ones can anyone recomend some? we only have a few high street chains in the town jjb and one other clearance one do you think there will be any actually qualified to fit me aswell/ tia
You need to go to a proper running shop to get fitted. I would be surprised if either of the places you mention would have trained staff. When I go to those places I am lucky if the assistants even know where the changing rooms are.
Mothersmilk - there is a Sweatshop in Ipswich at, I think it is Ransomes Europark, - it is in the David Lloyd there and they are brilliant. They will film you running and then let you run in a few pairs of shoes that suit you.
I found out what I needed and in what size from a specialised running shop. I then went and sourced some that were a wee bit cheaper.
Remember to tell them what surface you will run on as this makes a difference too. I live on a farm and run on grass or tracks so have changed from road shoes to Merrell trail runners and the difference is incredible.
