Re: Running shoes advice


I would strongly recommend you to go thru the same procedure I went thru to buy my Asics Gel-Kayano:

- Find yourself a specialized sports (running) shop around you
- call and ask them if they do the running test to check your exact posture while running (their supposed to check how you run on a running-belt and give you a shoe that suits YOUR feet)
- if yes, take an appointment and make sure you have time

I was recommended this procedure by a good friend and long time runner.
Was skeptical but the end result was great!
The man in the shop took at least an hour and made me test every single shoe on the running-belt.
He also found out the way my feet hit the ground was causing the pain in my knees, and gave me a shoe that corrected that.
I finally found a shoe that supports my bad knees.

That shop is in DE, however, I am sure you can find similar service in CH.
