Thanks for all the advice.

I know the importance of getting the gait checks and proper runners but it was me who told her to wait, as she would save alot of money.

Clothes online compared to up and running is a huge difference. Shoes there is many £20 a difference, but you have to pay £20 to get a gait checked if you dont buy a pair of shoes)

For the milage she is covering in a nuteral shoe wont do any damage, maybe a few blisters

Got something to say?
