Please feel free to ask any question relating to running shoes and I will answer them to the best of my ability. But remember, I am not a podiatrist / biokineticist / physiotherapist, nor a coach or race organiser so please keep you questions to shoe related issues. All communication by email only please and my response will generally be within 24 hours. Please remember that this site is designed for you to enjoy, maybe learn something and conveniently use to purchase your shoes. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how I can improve the presentation to you.
