The New Kids on the Block – True Motion Running Shoes

Posted on by Run Stu

OK, here’s the thing. Right now, within the running industry, there is much talk that running shoe design is becoming more and more dictated by the ‘next thing’ and not science.  I recently asked the question: ‘What is becoming of the industry I so love?’ For me, having worked in the running industry since I was 16, having helped with shoe design and tested how many different shoes for magazines and the brands themselves, there is a feeling of disbelief in what I am seeing.  Asking what research and science base is there to this ‘new shoe’ I am being … Continue reading

Time to ‘Layer-Up’ & Stay Warm

Posted on by Run Stu

Say what you like, for me there is nothing much worse than being cold.  Wet and cold is so much worse and if you are out in the hills for a long run-out then this is potentially life threatening.  A slightly different story on the streets of the city, yet the same wet and cold problem can still be relevant.  So what to do? “Layer up! That’s the key”. Finding what works for you is key. Not being afraid to invest in some really decent kit can also make all the difference too. Not just to you yet also to … Continue reading
