Running MOT and New Shoes...

So yesterday I went to sweatshop to get my first pair of proper running shoes. I also got an MOT, with my gait measured and had to run on a treadmill and even had my feet pose for pics. All exciting stuff! Turna out I have a normal gait and everything so have some neutral shoes, Brooks Ghost 7. Pic inexplicably upside down.

Loving the colour. Enjoy your new shoes and they're not upside down, they are magic and allow you to run upside down ;)

I have Brooks and they're dead comfy right out the box.

I have the Glycerines and Cascadias

Good luck with them. If they don't suit for whatever reason you can take them back to Sweatshop

Happy running!!!!

I think Brooks must be an Australian brand :)

Thanks eveeyone:) wore them yesterday for the first time but not too sure about them yet. I had a bit of ankle ache and they didn't feel as springy as i was hoping. I'm going to try again though.
