Decent price but wouldn't advocate buying running shoes from the web without trying them on or having a gait analysis done.

I bought a new balance running shoes but they didnt work for me. My soles were in pain while i was running. My knees were so painful. I think the soles are too hard and put a lot of pressure on the knees.

Cant speak for these New Balances, but as interfece says there are some good deals to be had on trainers at the moment. On sunday night got a pair of Asics cumulus 18's for £42 it said delivery may be up to month but they are being delivered today, their a bit of a lurid colour but for that price who cares.

In terms of what type of shoe you need the wet foot print test is a good start point for most.

I agree it's different for everyone. I've had three knee ops including a replacement and NB cushioning shoes are amazing on me. It's not the shoes, but they won't suit everyone. For example I just can't wear Adidas.

Decathlon also do it for free - and as above - strongly recommend it to figure out how your feet pronate.

Buying running shoes from the web is fine so long as you know roughly what works for you - I need neutral trainers in 10.5. I know that Nikes are too narrow, and Adidas/Saucony a perfect fit. EZ.

So, what you're saying is what everybody else has already said.

Don't buy running shoes (if you actually intend to run in them) unless you know what works.

If you're serious about running or starting to run (and you care about your knees) getting a proper analysis done of your running style coupled with shoes that meet you needs will save you a lot of pain, pain that isn't worth a £50 saving IMO.

If you're starting out you need something that will offer you stability, this varies across all ranges from all manufacturers and even between versions of the same shoe.

As above, if you're not running in them it doesn't matter

Heat added but it's ridiculous that a size 10 is £36 but a 10.5 is £20.

Are these shoes true to size?

I've only ever bought NB in the USA and they've generally been very good sizing as far as the 10 US size was concerned for my UK size 9 feet.

You can get a free online gait analysis if you submit a video of you running on a treadmill here:

I'd actually go further and say everyone should be wearing neutral trainers unless they have a very good reason not to. The research isn't that compelling (low numbers, limited follow up), but it seems to suggest that neutral shoes have the lowest injury risk (even lower than supposedly shoes matched to style). The theory here being compensating for poor form is not great, and it is better to try and improve their form by the feedback that running incorrectly gives.

I got in to running because I tore my ACL making me reluctant to do other sports. My injuries have definitely gone down since changing away from supportive shoes - though running more helps, again by encouraging good form. The next step is to get the injury rate to zero, so I can have a go at getting the marathon time to a good one, not just a respectable one.

Ordered... Have some heat.

​I normally go a size bigger with NB but probably gone through 20 pairs and that rule has always worked for me

Great price just a pity there's none in my size as NB have always worked well for me

Anyone know what kind these are? E.g. Support?

Support or neutral?

Why stop halfway? I never buy footwear without having my aura sketched. You're just asking for trouble otherwise

Why??? amazon is stupid and no other shop would even try it

Explain size 10 is £36 but a 10.5 is £20. no sense whatsoever and just annoys people

I feel quite good about that

No sir, it annoys you - to the point that you would (somewhat ludicrously) vote cold on a specific deal, because you are annoyed with Amazon's pricing policy. A pricing policy that most other retailers use - go to the New Balance website for example, and check how they have different prices for different sizes. That's one example - but they all do it.

So now we have a situation where you are annoyed at the way in which retailers sell their footwear, and you've decided to vent your anger by childishly voting cold on an Amazon deal. You sir, are a ninny and a tomfool.

Edited by: "horsepills" 18th Jul

They price the way they do because they can, if they buy a boat load in at a decent price and they happen to mainly be a few sizes that maybe the manufacturer has an overstock of - then why not do a deal ? If you just averaged out the cost price and spread it over all the sizes - it wouldnt be that appealing. Also this is Amazon they can and do whatever they want - happily sell at a loss so as not to lose the sale.

nowt to do with Amazon but if you do want them for running, would recommend running with a club or someone who has done a running course, and getting advice on running. Just changing your posture while running can change what is and isnt a decent trainer for you stop heel striking get your breathing better etc. Would agree with also going to a proper shop and trying them on a lot of brands have changed their fitting I have had Brooks GTS for quite a while, tried the latest ones - different fit much narrower, same for Adidas. Depends what you want your trainers for though. Just bought some Sketcher Forza 2017 Go Runs - wow like having trampolines attached to your foot !

Maybe they have loads of 10.5 in stock and not many size 10. Pretty straight forward reason.

​Have you try barefoot style running shoes? Took me a while to get used of them, but that's it, never go back to normal shoes...Feels like reinvent running, was sort of revelation for me.

I tried them, but wasn't a huge fan (I bought 2 pairs of vivobarefoot). I prefer some cushioning, but not a lot - just enough to make running on stones not a problem! Barefoot ones I just found too brutal. My favourites of the past few years have been Puma Faas 300 v1, Adidas Takumi Sen, Adidas Takumi Ren, Sketchers GoRun 400. All are neutral, and basically racing flats.
