    Hello all

    Any one know of a good running shoe for someone that weights in at 17st.
    Don't want anything to expensive unless thats all I can have.

    Many thanks

    Best idea is to get yourself along to a good sports shop that do gait analysis, they will let you try on a variety of different trainers and look at the way you run on a treadmill to decide which ones are best for your running style.
    Although you may find something thats a little lower impact may be better on your joints such as swimming or cycling.
