Any recommendations for running shoe shops where they'll do gait analysis etc.

I'm doing the London Marathon and I think my current pair are on their way out. I know I've left it a little late, but was thinking I'd pick up a pair this weekend to run in before the big day.

I've had a few local runners recommend the place in Beckenham, but I was hoping for another pair of Adidas (my current shoes). Looking at their website they only seem to have track and field adidas, no road shoes.

My current pair are Adidas Supernova Glide 7s, but these were not fitted / recommended, but have been good to me for the last 1.5 years.

I do know I have odd toes, so need a big toe box (I had to sell some Saucony Glide 7 as they squished my toes to bleeding on a series of short runs before I gave them up).

Ta in advance

There's the London Marathon Store near Spitalfields which I think is basically a Sweatshop (the brand, not staffed by virtual slaves). They definitely stock a decent range of Adidas. But, if your Glide 7's have been good to you, I'd be tempted just to get a new pair of them from t'internet.

I agree with Fravage. If you have done all your training in the current model with no issues, then best not change now, see if you can get another pair and wear them in a bit before the big day.

I would totally be up for that, but I've a feeling I probably picked them up as and end of line sale item as they now seem to be like hens teeth. When I initially searched the current model seems to have a different name (so not sure how similar it is). However looking around, there is a Glide 8 (last years model) and there seems to be a few more of them around...

Also if you haven't already, it's worth looking on Sportsshoes.com. They are very good and usually have older versions really cheaply.
