The store I go to make you go on a treadmill with CCTV, and they observe your steps on a monitor. then theymake you go oon this heatmat thing that makes your footprint. it has cm's up and down both sides. From this they found out that one of my feet were flatter than the other due to ligament injury and recommended a shoe to support it! It was a shoe with a level 4 support called Saucony. Good sports shoe stores will have this brand as well as Brooks and Asics. Any shop that does not do all this is not a proper running shoe store. they should also have 1000 mile, Skins, Ron Hill and Nike apparel.
