Many runners put a great deal of stock in what they run in, but the truth is often that it is what’s inside the shoe, not the shoe itself. Everyone is unique in terms of their anatomy, biomechanics and running style. There are many common injuries in running such as Medial Tibial Stress syndrome and Plantarfasciopathy, Achilles Tendinopathy to mention but a few. Many of these injuries are driven by the anatomy, biomechanics and running technique, but ultimately are experienced due to overload of the kinetic chain.
