I haven’t been real happy for a while with my running shoes. I have tried several pairs, but nothing really seemed to work right. The last pair, after only a few weeks, really irritated my IT band (Iliotibial band). I had to take all last week off from running and Insanity for it to heal completely.
I decided I wanted to get some expert opinion, so I head to Fleet Feet. They do video analysis of your running to suggest a proper shoe for your gate (running form). They measured my feet 4 different ways, and brought me 4 pairs of shoes to try. I was able to run on the treadmill with each pair. I finally settled on the Mizuno Wave Rider 13s. What’s nice is, if I don’t like them after having them for a bit, I can take them back and try a different pair.
