Are you training for an event that is part of the Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival? Do you overpronate? Do you supinate? What are you training for? What training distances are you running? What surfaces are you running on? Do you wear orthotics? That is just a small sample of the things that you need to consider when you purchase a pair of running shoes! With so much to consider we asked leading podiatrist Liam Rothwell to outline the key things to think about and ask when buying a pair of running shoes.
