Runners for around 100e

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!

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?
