“Putting Evidence Back Into
Running Injury and Performance”

Ian Griffiths: How to choose Running Shoes, Orthotics & Insoles

by | Nov 12, 2018 | Runchatlive Podcasts: Gait and Shoes

RunChatLive Ep.9 is delighted to bring you the highly respected podiatrist & sports injury specialist Ian Griffiths of Sports Podiatry Info and PodChatLive.

This episode really is a MUST listen for runners, therapists & coaches seeking evidence based ways to understand how we should be selecting running shoes, orthotics and insoles. Ian Griffiths has many years of experience working with in particular lower leg sports injuries and gives some excellent insight into how the traditional way of assessing & prescribing orthoses (inserts in layman’s terms) has changed over the years, particularly with what we now know about the role of kinetics (forces) in injury rather than just focusing on kinematics (joint movement).

We also look at how YOU the runner can tell if the podiatrist / physiotherapist / sports therapist / health professional you visit is up to date with the evidence.

Ian was one of ten speakers at the ‘RCL International Running Conference 2019’ in Brighton, UK. His presentation (the most requested of all!) can be accessed HERE.

Interested in starting YOUR OWN Podcast?

Here’s two things we wish someone had told us when we started:


    Choosing a suitable host company to upload, store & distribute your podcast material will always depend on your individual circumstances & needs. That said, if you’re looking for a company to help your podcast grow, we recommend Podbean. Set up is super easy, as is transferring from a different host. Click HERE for details.
    After trying many ways to do both solo recordings and with guests, we wholeheartedly recommend you try Be.Live online software. It’s the best value, simple to use (for you AND your guest), and has some great tools to brand it as you want. Testing the software is FREE (no credit card recquired). Click HERE for full details.
