    Hi All,
    would you be able to recommend a decent pair of runners for doing a 5k run in?

    At the moment I'm only hiting 3k on a thread mill but going to start training for a 5k run with some friends in work .


    Just using a pair of Nikes at the moment (picked for style rather than actually running!

    Wanna support genocide?Cheer on the murder of women and children?The Ruzzians aren't rapey enough for you? Morally bankrupt cockroaches and islamaphobes , Israel needs your help NOW!!

    Just go to a proper running shop like Runhub or Runlogic and try out a load of pairs in your price range and pick the one that feels most comfortable. Everyone is different and it’s unhelpful to just recommend a specific pair as they might not suit you.

    Thanks Murph..sounds better to be honest..theres a lot of choices and I guess what suits one person wouldn't nessarily suit someone else.

    You were right Murph_D...tried on a few pairs after getting my feet measured etc and then they filmed me to see how my ankles etc behaved while running.

    So yeah a bit more to it than picking a pair and walking off in them.

    Ended up getting a pair of new balance 860s for 140 euro's.

    Can I ask where you went to get it done? :)

    I see you got a pair already but for anyone else looking, I got a pair of Nike Lunarglide 9 in the Blanch outlet for less than €60, down from around €110-120 last year. I've seen some good prices on the likes of Amazon for a lot of running shoes too.

    They're my go to shoe as they have good support.

    I've seen a few articles suggesting that overpronation is a bit of a myth?
