Of the few I've used, Run and Become was far and away the best. This was years ago but you had to queue to be served and then they had limitless time to guide you.

Run and Become is still good (if not the cheapest) They are now in swanky new premises a short walk form Victoria tube/rail (and coach station bit further down Buck Pal Road.

I've there been recently - still very helpful, not pushy.

I bought my first running shoes at Runners' Need in Camden 26 years ago. I was amazed I was allowed to test run not one but several pairs before deciding! Naturally, I placed my custom there. :)
