Addicted to running? Don't run the risk of wearing the wrong shoe. Sports shoe stores have a bewildering array of running shoes, which make choosing the correct model a real challenge.

Take action:
Dallas Fell, well-known Cape Town podiatrist, gives some good tips: Don’t be afraid to seek professional advice – most good sports shoe stores have trained staff to assist you. Know what distance you intend to run, as well the surface you are most likely to run on. Choose a shoe that works best for your foot type. For best results, consult your podiatrist, who will assess your foot type and advise you accordingly.
