I'm about to embark on training for a half marathon in May and am looking to upgrade my shoes before I do so. Currently run in a very basic pair of Asics shoes. Just had a gait analyses done, came out as very neutral, slight heel striker and was recommended a shoe like the Saucony Triumph 10. However, after reading rave reviews of shoes like the Adidas Adipure Adipure Gazelle and Saucony Kinvara I was keen to try a shoe along those lines. Is a transition shoe something that anyone can get on with, do I just go for it? Should I just go with the running shops recommendation?
Many thanks in advance for your responses!
