Sports footwear can be a very complex subject and we can offer advice on what sort of features you should look for in a shoe.
Finding the right shoe for you with regards to fit and function is essential. It is also important that your footwear is correct for your activity, training, day to day wear and overall is comfortable. We can work with the Accelerate Store staff utilising the huge range of shoes we have to ensure that this vital bit of kit is correct for you. We feel that if you are undertaking different types of training and over different types of terrain then you are best having specific footwear for each situation. We look at size and shape, shoe stiffness, heel to forefoot drop, outsole, thickness of midsole, fit to foot, ability to accommodate an orthoses, usage and also price.
If you would like a more detailed approach to selecting your training or racing shoes, then this will be ideal. You will see a podiatrist for more detailed help with Footwear Selection.
In conjunction with the Accelerate Store, we often have trial shoes days and events so you can try out shoes and learn about the shoes from the different manufactures.
