Gait self-analysis

Is this a bad idea? I think my arches are non-existant so I need supportive shoes, but should I get it checked at a running shop just to be sure?

There is no harm in going to a running shop, I went to one called 'Up and Running' in Liverpool and they were very helpful, learned a lot and would recommend them!

I own a shop in Virginia- I always tell folks to call if they are getting off work a little late- most nights we are n't heading anywhere and can stay around a little bit.

Get 8) ting another "trained" person to look at your feet will be very helpful.

I agree itś good to get your shoes in a store where the people know what they are talking about. shoes are the only essential other stuff is comfort or nice, but not key. you can run without or with a 5$ watch
