I wouldn’t get hung up on it. Evidence suggests the best shoe is the one that ‘feels’ most comfortable. There is little or no evidence that gait analysis is necessary or desirable. Eg. https://runnersconnect.net/running-gait-analysis-footwear/

I used to suffer from terrible Achilles tendonitis. Could hardly touch them.
Got a pair of orthotics made to measure.
Inside a week or so, it was gone.
Sometimes now when I don't bother putting them in my shoes or trainers as I change them about, I can feel the pain creeping back.

If your serious about getting your issues resolved then get orthotics.
They are more expensive, but should fix your issues in the long run.

Look at an old pair of shoes of yours. Look at the sole of the shoe to see where it is worn.
Some people wear out the outside of the heal of the shoe (underpronators or supinators). If like this look for a shoe with 'cushioning'.
Other people wear out the sole on the inside of the heal, overpronators. For this type you need a shoe with 'stability'.
Others dont wear out the heal - neutral runners. It can really vary for people.
I was getting pain on the outside of my knee a year or so back. Runner's knee or itb syndrome it is sometimes called. It turned out that I was wearing the wrong type of runner.
Instead of getting support at the outside of my shoe I was being pushed out to its side, overstretching the muscles and fibres down the outside of my leg. Once I changed to the right runner I was fine.
I can never wear a flat shoe (zero drop type) as I start to get issues with my heal even when walking. I presume I must have high enough arches.
If you are buying a runner check the reviews online. You will often get a good detailed review on a shoe.
The above is just my experience. Others on here may be more in the know.

I went to the Run Hub about 6 months after I took up running, wearing decent but not specifically running Nikes. I'd had an occasional knee pain. After the gait analysis, I came away with a pair of runners from Brooks. Never had any knee pain again.

Is there a charge for thr gait analysis at the runhub? Or is it built into the price of the shoes you end up buying?

It's €25 but they take it off the price off your shoes if you buy a pair.
