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 know the likes of JJB etc stocks kids running shoes, but then they wouldn't be able to analyse your running style and offer the appropriate shoe... That is assuming you were hoping to have your gait analysed?

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.:)

Haha. Surely if you only have size twos any heel would be a high heel! Would I be right in thinking that most of your falling is in high heels and when drunk?

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.
