Our sponsors at Dubbo Specialist and Rehabilitation Centre have put together an informative footwear guide to assist you to find an alternative running shoe, or find a different style to rotate into your training.
The shoes and are all readily available in Australia and have been grouped into the following categories:
Type 1 - Stability Shoes for the pronated foot
Type 2 - Neutral - for the neutral or mildly inverted foot
Type 3 - Lightweight - designed for event day. Lightweight with minimal stability
Type 4 - Stability Heavy - for the heavy pronator, giving extra support
Find your current shoe on the list and see what other possibilities you have within that category.
This guide does not include all available running shoes but is a cross section of the common shoes seen . For an accurate shortlist of shoes for your individual gait and activity you will need to see your sports podiatrist or physiotherapist. Contact podiatrist, Brett Reynish at Dubbo Specialist and Rehabilitation Centre for an appointment on 6885 1696.
