I have been running since the end of April last year in a pair of Addidas energy boost trainers. I run 3 times a week and have built up to 10k for my big run and do 2 other 5ks. I feel I deserve another pair and want to start my research.
First pair were from a running shop, though no gait analysis. I live in France and it would not appear to be done here in Lorient. I was given 2 options the boost or a pair of Brookes I was advised that the Boost was best given my need for a significant cushion. I had a herniated disk in 2016 which ended with an emergency op. So needless to say I need a "protective" pair of runners. My dilemma is that though the shop was good I'm not sure they would have anything new to offer, they don't have a big range.
Therefore my question is, could you recommend something given my history ? Or should I just get another pair of the boosts. Thanks in advance.
