Running Shoes

I wondering if anyone can suggest a good pair of sneakers for a person who's feet supine (recent foot scan showed this to be an issue)?  I am a new runner and my left hip, knee and ankle are not impressed.  Thanks.

    I would definitely go to a store like Fleet Feet where the people know what they are talking about.  If you spend any money on this sport, put it into good/great shoes.  I've had more injuries from wearing shoes that are not "fitted" for me.  Take the time and spend the money.  You'll be happy.

    Is there any stores where they "know what they are talking about," closer to Southern California?

    Hi. Have you checked out -- and look under their new footwear? There are very nice shoes, reasonably priced and they have excellent options. Please tell them Barbara Peterson sent you, they will like it. (I am an XTERRA athlete, and have just tested their shoes with great new appreciation for their product line). You can also look me up as a viable reference under Ambassadors/SW REGION.

    Good luck!

    I am in Texas - but know these type of "chains" are out there nationally.  I recently went to Lukes Locker and they will not only talk to you about what your needs are and help with fit, but they will also put you on a treadmill that allows them to see "how" you walk and assist with best shoe for your needs.



    saying all this - I walked out a little lighter in the pocketbook, but hopefully these new beuties will help me stay injury free so that I can keep lookinahead

    Re: Running Shoes
    Not sure what supine is? but I am flat footed (almost no arch) and I have found Brooks to be one of the few shoes built for this condition. Most of the other brands we get here in Australia presume that if you are flatfooted you wont want to take up running - I'm trying to prove them wrong

    i know this reply is REALLY late, and chances are, you've already bought a pair of sneakers for your running pleasure, but i thought i'd offer my 2 cents.


    a few years back, i was visiting my father in SoCal and he's got some amazing hills up by his house, which ultimately fed my desire to get a new pair of running shoes.

    my sister, an avid runner before her injury, recommended a store that she had used before and had good experiences- Road Runner Sports. Not sure if you'd heard anything about them, but they have a knowledgeable staff there that take time to analyze your stride via motion camera/treadmill combo, talk about your pronation/lack thereof, and can recommend shoes that fit your price range. honestly, i they were great.

    when they opened up a store location closer to me, here on the east coast, i was reminded at just how professional and easy-going they were to deal with.


    i ended up buying some asics both times as the models i got fit my arches very well and i liked the support, but even if you don't have the first clue at what it is you want in a running shoe, definitely give them a try.


    i went to the one in mission viejo, but i believe there is also one near newport beach.


    again, sorry if this long-winded reply is too late, but who knows... you may already be in the market for another pair o' kicks!


    take care,

    Re: Running Shoes

    SophiasWisdom   I must reiterate that you should at least google "running shoe stores" and the state in which you live. I did that and found a GREAT place here in NH that spent 1.5 hours with me and DH in order to fit us with the correct shoes/sneakers....they were great!!!!


    I have Asics Gel Kayanos. I pronate, and I have RA so need the extra cushion of the gels...The tech that was fitting me kept telling me = you'll KNOW when you have the right pair!!! AND I DID!!!!!  it was amazing....They are not the same size as my everyday sneakers, so be sure to be fitted.... hope this helps....
