Get correct running trainers near Westerham
Wearing the correct type of running trainers in Westerham or Sevenoaks will help you reach your sporting goals by maximising your performance. The right running trainers will improve comfort, prolong the lifespan of your footwear, and reduce the risk of injury. There are different trainers for different sports. Running trainers have very cushioned soles for shock absorption and help to improve posture and running efficiency. There are both normal running trainers and off-road running trainers. Off-road running trainers have similar features to running trainers but with different soles and tread patterns to cope with varying terrain.
It is important that your trainers fit your foot exactly; it should be snug around the heel, mid-foot, and ankle. The space around the toe needs to be slightly more spacious as your feet expand with exercise.

Biomechanical TN13 video gait analysis
Here at Running Hub, video gait analysis enables us to study your movements as you run. We video you on the treadmill in our shop then use high-speed video capture and the latest Contemplas Templo gait analysis software, to study your unique gait. Every runner has a unique body and stride. Through understanding yours, we can help you make the right choice of running shoes.
Runners tend to fall into three categories:
- Pronation: This is where oy have low arches to flat feet and shoes can be used to stop your feet rolling inwards.
- Neutral: This is the standard running gait where your foot remains neutral.
- Supination: This is when the runner has a high arch and tendency to roll the foot inwards.
Gait analysis allows us to check the degree of pronation or supination to help reduce the risk of injury and find a fully supportive pair of shoes.
