Still into barefoot running? The new kid on the running blocks are ultra-cushioned/maximalist running shoes (like Hoka OneOne). 
Find out why: http://ahrun.me/1A252it #running   #hoka  
Some dismiss maximalist shoes as gimmicky or silly-looking. Others, from injury-prone joggers to Olympians, are converts.

Get 30% off the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14 including the limited edition Scottish colour way - http://ahrun.me/brooks-gts14-sale

Runner's World UK named the Adrenaline GTS 14 "Editor’s Choice" in the Winter Shoe Guide in their December 2013 issue, saying the shoe "boasts all the trappings of a traditional stability model, but rides as smooth as ever.” The editors also praised the GTS’s cushioning, saying it "hits the sweet spot" and is "soft enough for high-mileage training but firm enough to remain stable."

Amazing service. My adviser spent a lot of time discussing what kind of shoes I wanted. After explaining I suffer from shine splints he did a full examination of my gait and the shape of my foot to figure out how much stability I needed in a trainer. I tried on about 10 brands of trainer, all tailored to my over-pronation, and we gradually narrowed down which ones I felt comfortable in. After picking two brands I jogged back and forth for a minute or so and decided on Saucony Guide 7s. I have been so happy with them and have been able to push myself so much further than with my previous shoes. Although the shoes are expensive, it is really worth it as you will be guaranteed to leave with the best suited shoes for you. Really pleasant staff who were very informative without being patronizing. Fantastic experience and I cannot recommend more highly!

ordered Nike Free runs, phoned them first for some information which was really great, then just followed the order through, really good website and easy to order to alternative address, and on a student budget managed to grab the nike free run 4.0 v2 at a bargain price of £52 instead of the RRP of £75. Happy running for me :)

Thanks very much for the feedback Chris - hope you're getting out there and enjoying your new Nike Free's :)

Helpful and qualified staff who will give you an on the spot analysis of your walking/running technique and advise on footwear accordingly. The only issue is the price. I don't quite have the bottle to have my running analysed there, and have shoes fitted, only then to buy somewhere else; however my ASICS Gel Cumulus 15 road shoes were a colossal £110 pounds, despite being £80 at another reputable shop, and apparently even lower on eBay. I've noticed this before with other shoes, but I suppose you pay for the service too.

What can't you find on the internet? Achilles Heel in Glasgow has it all...... Quality service at an affordable price. After searching the internet and failing to find an ideal running shoe for my son, Stefan at Achillees Heel not only took the time to find the right style for what was needed but made sure he found a pair that fitted comfortably at the right price. The boy went on to race in great style, finishing equal third in only his second race, thanks in part to the quality service and support offered by excellent staff. Thanks AC
