The selection of a running shoe can be overwhelming for a runner within a market full of shoes of different weights, designs, features and materials and prices. Runners often consult physiotherapists on what shoe will best suit their abilities and needs. Clinicians, therefore, need to be informed on the continuous changes and updates in footwear as well as the scientific evidence available in order to provide sound advice to their clients. In this course, Dawn Nunes provides a refreshing discussion on how to find the right shoe fit for each runner


This course aims to discuss shoe fit and explore factors that should be considered when advising runners on shoe selection.
