Here's a picture of my soles from my Adidas Boost running shoes. Never stopped to look at this before, as you can see the left shoe is really worn in all unusual places compared to my right.

With a lack of specialist running shops available to go to at the moment, I wondered what this means? How do I correct it or buy the right footwear?

I do get left knee pain sometimes, but mainly only when warming up. Been for a 10k run this morning, my left Achilles/calf feels tighter than my right.

Need some help (y)

If you don't have much of an issue then there is nothing to worry about. We are not symmetrical. All it looks like is that you are just about ready for new shoes

Hi Ellis,

Yes I totally agree, now shops are slowly opening again I'll take my old running shoes and see what they advise.

I think when I saw the bottom of my shoes, I was trying to link that to my knee pain. It may or may not have any bearing, I'll let the experts advise. I was a bit surprised one side could be so different!

I don't think that's unusual. I wouldn't even ask for advice as you have much more experience with what is comfortable for you. A neutral shoe should be fine.
