I've decided to treat myself to new shoes. (Realised yesterday that I've done about 600k in the ones I have - no wonder they're looking a bit used.) I use orthotics from the podiatrist to run with, so my thinking is that I want a neutral shoe so that they don't interfear with the orthotics. As far as the shoe is concerned I would then be looking for comfort, fit and shock absorbtion. Does that make sense ?
