    Looking for some decent budget walking/jogging trainers please!

    I would like to buy a new pair of mens sports trainers size 8 as I have a new puppy and we are out walking twice every day, also I have a cross trainer but when I use it for anything over 20 mins i get an ache in my feet (pretty sure this is due to high arch's) so I need a pretty decent pair of running/walking trainers on a budget as I am not currently working please.

    Any help would be amazing so thanks in advance!

    Lidl's have their running event on from 5th May and have trainers for £12.99, these would be fine for your needs.

    Thanks a lot, I take it these have some heel support then? Have you personally tried them?

    don't go for unbranded crap. get something with a vibram sole. a lot of sports shops/outdoor shops have sales where you may get a pair of merrells for £50 or so. i have sporadic back/knee issues but since i started using shoes/boots with a vibram sole my problems have all but disappeared as they have MUCH better shock absorption and are also pretty sturdy and durable, for instance my last pair of merrell chameleons lasted two years of very, very regular use.

    ps - they were recommended to me by my physiotherapist. i've never looked back.

    you can always try gel footbeds for extra support: silvermans.co.uk/Pro…spx

    Might be worth getting your gait assessed if your arches are giving you problems, even if not a serious runner, wearing the right trainers can help a lot.

    You can get free gait analysis done at selected DW fitness stores. Think they will try and sell you expensive trainers - but you can then shop round when you know what you need.

    I've not tried their shoes but all their running gear is very good, the reason I recommended these is you said you are on a budget,if money wasn't an issue then yes go to a dedicated running shop and have a video gait analysis, but you would then be paying £60+ for shoes.

    Not if you just pay for it. As above you can get it free at DW, my own local running shop are happy to do it for £15, and then you can go and source your own on the web that meet your needs and are a fair bit cheaper than the specialist shops.

    OK thanks very much for all your help, I think I will give the lidl ones a shot and if the problem persists then I will go the alternative (more expensive) gait analysis route.

    Much appreciated chaps!
