Best insoles to buy for niggling pains?
Hi im new to running (thus my technique isnt perfect) and I have been getting some pretty bad niggling pains in my feet espcially my arches after I run and was wondering if changing up my insoles would help? Currently inside my running shoes it is as flat as a pancake and doesnt give any support at all. I was thinking about buying some really cheap arch support insoles like these for example. Are cheap insoles just as good as off the shelf branded insoles? Going by the pics they dont look any different to the expensive superfeet ones to me. What would you guys recommend I do? Im on a super low budget as I am VERY skint at the moment. im all ears, thank you! :)

With foot issues my feeling is that it's always best to go and get it checked by either a podiatrist (more expensive option - though if you're UK based, maybe free if through the NHS?) OR just go in to a specialised running store and talk to the guys or gals in there.

Internet advice could be helpful from someone who really knows what they're talking about, however I'd say it's generally quite important for whoevers giving you the advice to actually see your feet, hence the above recommendations.

I'll share a link to your query on our Twitter page though.

Cheers

Thanks for your reply really appreciate it. I hope a specialist wont be to expensive becuase when you are unemployed every penny counts just to eat properly.

Edit:according to the nhs website tis free check ups if reffered www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/1099.aspx?CategoryID=68&SubCategoryID=154 :)
