Our expert says:
I'm not usually inclined to blame the shoes for injury. Unless the shoe is very obviously wrong for you (that is, it's a heavy, bulky shoe that prevents any movement or a flimsy shoe), it's unlikely that the shoe is to blame.
More likely, it's the training that is too rapidly increased for your muscles and tendons. That places strain on the joints and they're not ready for it and so they become inflamed.
Of course, it may be something else too - there are biomechanics issues, flexibility issues that can also contribute to injury and perhaps one of these is in play here. What you really need is a diagnosis, from a qualified physio or biokineticist who can then advise on maybe strengthening the calf or improving flexibility of the calf to help prevent this.
But it's not likely that the shoes are the problem - it's the training, with maybe some mechanical issues, or muscle weakness, underlying it.
