I really need some new running shoes, but I'm struggling as I need to buy kids as I'm only a 2. Does anyone know where I could get these, or is my only option to buy online?

Thanks

I bought some a couple of weeks ago from JJB, but they are just a general shoe they don't stock kids running shoes. Trouble is the amount of running I'm doing they aren't supporting my feet well enough.

I hate my bloody feet!

Here's a link to some pretty decent running shoes for kids. But I still think it would be worth going into a specialist shop and getting your gait analysed first. You never know, they might be able to order some in for you to select from if your not in a rush for them.

Thanks for the link I have taken a look. I reckon my best option is to visit the specialist shop and try to get some ordered.:)

Ah, so that where the user name comes from, I've heard it can have that effect on you!

I was always told to go at least one size up with running shoes as your feet tend to get a bit bigger when hot. The accepted is wisdom is that you should have a thumb's width between your toes and the end of the shoe.
I'm a 5' 10" bloke with size seven wide feet and have difficulties getting shoes to fit.

I know what you mean but I already do this as I have no option, my feet only ever fit half my shoe. Don't know what size they are but I can get them into a size one's.

I've gotta sort soon though as pounding the streets in crappy kids trainers is doing my feet no good.
