    Default Training shoes

    Sorry mods if I have posted in the wrong section.

    I currently wear a pair of Skechers that I have have for around 6 months which were great but now I am getting shin splints. I am planning on going into athletes foot and walking on the mat thingo but was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions? They are mainly used for bootcamp which is a mix or running, jumping (all on grass) weights boxing and cardio.

    I would get a properly fitted pair of trainers. I don't know about Sketchers but I thought they were a fashion shoe? I have 3 pairs of trainers I rotate depending on the exercise. I wear nikes for boot camp.

    I suggest Asics. Sketchers are definitely just fashion shoes. No need to walk on the mat, It doesn't replicate what your feet do when you exercise anyway.
    Make sure you are doing a lot of calf stretches to ease your shin splints :-)

    I love my Nike free's only runner that I've found to not cause any foot pain. I have 3 pairs that I alternate between.

    My favourite are the asics gt2000 range. I was having foot problems so bad in my old adidas shoes that I couldn't go to the gym anymore as even light mat jogging I was in so much pain. I went and got properly fitted by a podiatrist at a fancy sports shop and they suggested 2 shoes to suit my feet. One was the asics and it instantly solved my problems. Very comfy and supportive. Ugly though haha. I have since tried the asics kayano and prefer the gt massively.
    As pp have said Skechers are a fashion shoe not a sports shoe. I wear my Skechers almost every day but wouldn't do more than walk around the shops in them really.

    I just looked up the nikes and they sound really good. Might go see if I can find a pair to try on

    Yeah shoes are so individual aren't they! If you can get to a good sports store for a fitting that will be great as they'll look at your arches and ankle roll, toe shape etc to figure out the best fit.

    This.

    Walk over the mat. It will give an idea of where you need support.

    For example my DH has plantar fasciitis. He can only wear about 3 types of shoes on the market. If I wore shoes like that I'd probably be in pain as there is too much support!

    Also get shoes specific for what you need. Sketchers are generally only walking shoes. You will need more high impact for bootcamp.
