I personally believe that everyone should be wearing the correct shoes fitted by a specialist to aid injury prevention, if your feet are not landing correctly this will through time show with aches and pains further up the body or as injuries. Correct shoes are a vital piece of kit and will save people future injuries or poor alignment further up the body.
Many runners have not had expert help in selecting their running shoes so surely any help we can get must be a positive.
Experienced runners like yourself djd may not feel the need to go but there are others out there not as filled with knowledge as yourself who will benefit from help from the experts at Run 4 It. I am also a great supporter of keeping it local, as the girls in Wee Toon sports will tell you. Once I know which type of shoe I need if I can then I buy from them, but I also do still pop up the road for reassurance eg before starting training for my first marathon I had a shoe check up (and a full body check up from the Willow Clinic), then alternating my purchases between further afield and Wee Toon Sports.
