Any advice on how to choose new running shoes - when I try different brands and models on in the shop, most of them feel comfortable like putting on slippers. I'm only on my 3rd pair so don't have a lot of experience as to what to look for how different types feel. I can get the size and fit right, I need a neutral shoe, but over that I'm a little lost? Even running on a tread-mill in the shop does not really give much difference between shoes i feel - only after running outside for a couple of weeks you notice any deficiencies (like in my 2nd Asics shoes).
My first pair were Nike and i literally wore the tread off them, the shoe is still more or less intact so still use them for popping out to the shops etc. The 2nd were Asics but they are too wide around the heal and kept giving me blisters - so they have been consigned to walking duties only. Third are Salming (Swedish brand), tread is fine but the foam around the heal is worn, so not great quality!
Most of my running is on paths or on some gravelly tracks.
Any recommendations for what to look for / makes / models when there is such a big selection?
Curious how other members make the choice?
