If you are thinking of voting cold - please read!!

These are proper running shoes for those people doing 10 miles per week or more road running and whose running gait is a moderate overpronation. I know I can buy cheaper so called running shoes, but the cheap ones tend to be for a neutral running style, or for low mileage users!

Right, on we go...

These are very highly acclaimed running shoes, but are the previous model (GTS 10's are now available). If you go to the Brooks website, there is a shoe adviser that you can enter details and find if these are right for you!

Also available from M&M are Switch 2 for £34.99 - for milder over-pronators again a great deal for someone doing 8 - 10 miles on the grey stuff a week!

Search the voucher forum on here and you will find free delivery codes - although that usually loses you the quidco (but as an existing customer you only get 2% anyway!)

For anyone who has just started running - do your self a favour and get your running style analysed. The right shoes for your style will save you a lot of pain in the future!!

I have looked for these cheaper, and drew a blank - and as someone who is about to buy, if you do vote this cold, due to price I'd appreciate the link so I can save myself a few quid!

Cheers
James

As a fellow runner i want to say great deal . Often fattys see these and go urrrgh they look horrible but as you point out these are for actually taking part in exercise and not for popping to the shop for 20 Lambert and Butler and a scratch card during the ad-break on the Jeremy Kyle or Loose Women show.
I only wear trainers when im train-ing hence the name .
#3
I don't run any more but for leisure I always wear good trainers, often running shoes as
they are much better for your feet.
Brooks is a good name and these are a great buy.
Cheap and nasty trainers cost very little less
Thanks for the post.

Hot from me.

I ordered some yesterday and will now wear my 8s in the gym.

Yeah, but what sort of gait do you have? Cushion shoes are normally quite easy to find cheap, but control ones like this aren't.

In truth, if you're a neutral runner, in your early thirties or younger, treadmill running (cos it's highly cushioned compared to road or pavement) or a combination of these you may well get away with a cheaper pair... :thumbsup:

I had some Nike's and they were not right for me and contributed to me getting shin splints!

I don't really care if people think these are a good deal or not - road runners will know they are - BUT anyone who gyms it 5 days a week doing numerous miles should have their running gait analysed and buy the right shoes for that gait - unless of course you want to injure yourself or crucify your knees for later life!

Cheers

Where could i get this done for free James ? I do a fair bit of running on both treadmill and road and got a decent pair of Asics and i remember reading on their site about all that technical stuff .
I think i read somewhere to make a wet foot print on a tiled floor and you could tell by the print left behind which type of shoe to get !!? I did do it but id like a professional opinion as i would like to still be running in my 50's and 60's (In my mid 30's now) Cheers mate .

Any good local sports store with a running department should be able to do this for you... Also, the Asics store in London, just off Oxford Street, and the sports department in Harrods do it too. Depends where in the country you are, but they are pretty common!
Makes a big difference!

Hot. Bought these a while ago from here. They're excellent - used to use Nike+ Air Max etc but these seem better (plus control) for running and you don't have to worry about the air bubbles bursting (although usually after a few years). Have had no problems feet or legwise since using these.
#11
very nice find, does anyone have experience with Brooks sizes

I'm usually a 10.5UK in asics gels but a 10 normal shoe

are Brooks similar - thanks - Heat added
#12
hello, i have been running in these actual shoes for a few years and they are great, i usually wear a 4 in normal shoes but a 5 in these Brooks. Hope this helps
#13
Great deal, but they only have size 7 1/2's remaining.
#14
"For anyone who has just started running - do your self a favour and get your running style analysed. The right shoes for your style will save you a lot of pain in the future!!"

I can agree with this i am recovering from knee pain due to using cheep crappy trainers and starting to train for a half marathon, after having my gait analysed i have paid £80 for proper running trainers that suit me.
so this is a good price if they suit your gait !
#15
imo only worth buying if you know this model supports the way you run. I had a test on video and you can see how your running style needs support in a specific area which shoes can correct/provide support for. On that, unless you know these are for you, I probably would go and be tested first. Good deal tho - I think my Brookes were 80 quid.

I remember when I first started running. I got off the dreadmill and hit the streets. I had all the gear, but no idea. Unfortunately I thought a pair of "fashion" trainers where good enough for marathon training. I got about a quarter of a mile from my house before I had to turn round and walk back! I felt like I was going to be sick with the jolting through my whole body.

A few days later I went down to the sweatshop for gait analysis and walked out with a pair of Asics Kayano's. What a difference. From then on it was like the scene from when Forest Gump takes up running and doesn't stop. I now have my first marathon under my belt and can run a sub 20 5k. I also regularly run 12-30 miles a week.

If there was one piece of advice I could give when taking up running, it would be to forget about all the designer gear. Invest in a proper pair of running shoes and it will make all the difference.

Hot deal!

how long did it take you from starting running to doing a sub 20 5k, also how old are you?

I am 38 years old. It took two approximately two years from scratch and lots of hard interval training. I went from 18.5 stone to 12 st. I already had a lot of base miles from marathon training, so to get my pace up I then worked on speedwork. I used to go out and run a sub 45 minute 10k every Saturday morning and do 1 hard interval session a week, so the next target was to run a sub 20 5k. The only problem with putting in all the running miles was boredom, so I now bike and run. 150-200 miles bike and 12-30 miles running a week.

I can confirm shinsplints are a pain, in every sense of the word.....

All you need to run is a pair of converse!!! Just look at Rocky! None of those young kids could catch him and he was leaping benches and everything! Also all those steps he runs up, those converse must be great!

I run about 45 miles a week, and used to do it in a pair of Air Max. After chatting to a mate who runs for a club, he advised me to get my gait checked as I might be doing long-term damage.

I went to this place: http://www.at-your-pace.co.uk/page_1185995248859.html

They put me on a treadmill, recorded me running, and slowed it down to tell my impact points. It was actually quite amazing.

I did buy some trainers on that day, and I have to say running is a completely different sport now - you don't realise how uncomfortable trainers not designed for your gait are until you try ones on which are made for you.

I guess what I am trying to say, is buying trainers of the net is all well and good, but until you know your style, they are a waste of time and could actually do damage - so at least buy your first pair from a specialist running shop.

good point! :-D

was looking at these yesterday - the asics seem basic.

been running for about 8 months and started of with casual rebook classic-style kswiss trainers that were perfect - many recommend this style though obviously they're not hard-wearing - and now wearing the converse style kswiss 'moulton' and I can feel the pain . . so great thread.
#25
I've had my gait analysed at Up n Running in Manchester and there it's free if you buy your trainers from them (Otherwise they charge £20). Although the price of the trainers was higher from them, once you factored in the 'free' gait analysis it worked out around the same price as buying from the web etc anyway.
I'm a neutral runner and always use Asics and run about 20-30 miles per week :thumbsup:
As others have mentioned, a proper pair of running trainers is essential for road running. I too started out with 'fashion' trainers and since I switched to Asics I haven't looked back....

Good luck

If you go from running on reebok classic/K swiss style shoes to these or Asics, it will feel like you are gliding along.

must admit if you do any sort of running your local running shop will usually analize your gait for free on thier treadmill
i do buy mine from sports world now and again but allways end up back at the running shop as they have information to die for

looking at that thread, very interesting looks like i need to considerably up my weekly milage

Great links guys!

I can HIGHLY recommend "sweatshop" as being a place where they take the time to help you and understand your use of trainers - along with gait analysis (I over-pronate badly and have hard insoles in normal shoes).

Sweatshop:
http://running.sweatshop.co.uk/search?w=brooks&asug=&Submit=Search

My GTS 9's from Brooks offer a support that mimicks the insoles.

I don't know if the gts 10's offer the same level of support - BUT I can say that so far I have reduced my shin splints (lots of stretching) and the best trainers I have ever used!

Stu :)
