The support I received from Run and Become in ordering my new trainers was first class. Whether it was by e-mail or by phone they could not have been more helpful. I've already worn my new shoes on two good length walks, one up and down hill, and they've caused me no trouble whatsoever. Seriously good service during this lockdown period and before that in their Edinburgh shop (note there was a hiccup the first time I bought in store but it was fully acknowledged and rectified). I'll be buying from them again, for sure.
“One size 6 ladies trail shoe the other size 8 male trail shoe arrived. Size 8 shoe in the post awaiting the other size 6 ladies shoe. Hopeful that the matching trainer will be the correct one sent out as they cost £130. They were bought as a gift for this friday but no luck they will be a matching pair for tomorrow.”
“Very useful to find a company that provides shoes that you can size properly. My last pair of online bought trainers were given away as they didn't fit properly and after a few wears they were causing discomfort.
One slight disapointment was that I actually wanted a pair of cross trainers to do HIT training sessions in. However I couldnt find any online (or on this site) that could be properly sized, so I had to get running shoes.
I ordered a pair of Brooks Ghost EE size 9's and they arrived within hours; I think it was next day. After a couple of sessions I find that the ghosts are an excellent well made and light shoe that are perfectly acceptable for the occasional HIT session, and probably great for running.
The print-off paper foot measure chart was a little complicated to organize off the printer, but I eventually managed to get a pretty accurate idea of my measurements from it.
